(This biographical sketch of Margaret May (Bitting) Phillips appeared in "Some Descendants of Thomas and Jane (Jefferson) Stephens of Baltimore County, Maryland, 1745-2005" by Edmund G. Fisher, 2005.)

May Bitting was born and reared on her parents' farm in Cedar Township, Washington County, Iowa, and attended the nearby country schools. May and her husband, Virginia-born Henry Phillips, were married in Cedar Township on December 15, 1892. They spent the first few years of their 50-year marriage at Washington, Iowa, and in the late 1890's homesteaded for a short time in Kossuth County, Iowa. After 1904 the Phillipses resided at Portland, Oregon, where they managed a residential hotel. They later settled on a small farm near the coastal community of Taft (now Lincoln City), Oregon. May and Henry had two daughters. She died at 88.
