"Jonathan Phillips was a highly educated man, followed the profession of teaching for some years, and from teaching turned to merchandising, in which he was engaged at the time of his death, his home then being in Vienna, Lincoln parish, Louisiana. His death, however, occurred at Columbia, Louisiana, where he was stricken with yellow fever and cut down in the prime of his life, that being in 1852, when Reuben was a child of seven years. Jonathan Phillips was a man of high moral and Christian character, was public-spirited and whole hearted, and was frequently looked to from various sources for counsel and advice. In his church, the Methodist Episcopal church, south, he was active and efficient. His untimely death left his family without support and with only a limited estate, and they were taken into the home of his father, Reuben Phillips, where they were kindly cared for. "
