Kansas, USA
Death: 1931
Denver County

Wife #2 of Lawrence Phipps - a director and later chairman of the Denver Salt Lake Railroad, formed in 1915.

"Phipps married Genevieve Chandler of Pittsburgh in 1897 where he had lived with his first wife who died. He had the marriage annulled in 1904 after she bore him two children. We assume a scandal was averted, but it is difficult to point blame or know the story. Nonetheless, Phipps did not remarry until 1911. In 1918 he was elected as Senator. Genevieve Phipps disappears in literature search after 1904. They had their residence in Denver at 1154 E. Colfax. By 1915, she had apparently moved to the Lewiston area."

She built Greystone Lodge in 1914-16 as a summer camp. When Genevieve died in 1931 at age 52, her daughters, Helen and Dorothy, inherited the house and occupied it summers until 1939, when it was sold to Elmer Wilfley of Denver, a pump manufacturer who used it as a working cattle ranch and for entertaining at night.
