Death: Jun. 24, 1933

PHINEAS became a successful farmer. He married Elizabeth Crook and purchased mother's white adobe home one block north and one block east of Payson Tabernacle. I cite the location because a noted Box-Elder tree in the doorway; the oldest tree in Payson. The circumference of this tree
is twelve feet. Phineas has improved and enlarged the home. For sentimental reasons, I am proud of the way he's kept it.
