Daughter of Barnett Philips and Polly Anderson. Born c1839 in KY. Married Henry Thompson in Warrick Co., IN 15 JAN 1860. 4 children. Still living around 1900. Have it on authority of Bryan Riley who was relation and was caretaker and gravedigger at Williams Cemetery for many years that she is buried in Williams with no stone. Some time in the 50s or 60s a high bank on the edge of the cemetery caved off into the road below. Elizabeth's coffin was one of those that was unceremoniously dumped down the bank and had to be reburied according to Bryan (and he had to do it with a shovel). No idea if the bank was shored up or if the exposed graves were reburied elsewhere on the grounds. Pretty good chance that husband Henry was next to her, but that is only an assumption.
