Birth: 1837
Champaign County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 25, 1863
Van Buren County

Daughter of Nathan RICHARDSON and Sarah LAWSON. Daughter-in-law of John PHILLIPS and Matilda Pumphrey PHILLIPS, wife of Joshua Thomas PHILLIPS who was killed in the Civil War (battle of Prairie Grove, probably buried at Fayetteville National Cemetery, Arkansas). Rebecca reportedly died in child birth, and the child may have been buried with her. All buried on the family farm. The land was actually owned by a Mr. Fatherson...see alternate cemetery entry for Fatherson Cemetery, Mount Sterling, Van Buren County. Family lore also places an unrelated infant who died on the Mormon Trail, buried in the cemetery.
