Philip and his brothers migrated from Philadelphia to York County, PA. During the Revolutionary War, he was a private in the 6th Battallion, PA, York County with Capt. Wilson's company.

In 1780, he and his family were driven from their home in the mountains, near Dillsburg, by the Indians, and they chose to settle in Milford Twp., Bedford (now Somerset) Co., PA. He was granted a patent for 300 acres which he named "Kingwood." Another tract in 1791 called "Kingstone" was patended and conveyed to his brother Christopher.

Now Justice of the Peace, Philip King, Esquire, acquired property of 279 acres on Laurel Hill Creek, Turkeyfoot Twp, 318 acres on Pound Lick Run, and 583 acres on the South Fork of Middle Creek, Milford Twp. He had a grist mill and saw mill, along with his farms.

The oldest bridge in Somerset County, the King Bridge, over Laurel Hill Creek, near New Lexington, was erected by a descendant.

Philip and Anne also had the following children in addition to those linked: Rachel md. John Sutton, Hannah md. Rev. Nathaniel Skinner, and Catherine md. James Knight.
