Birth: Jan. 6, 1800
Death: Apr. 11, 1886

Christina Phillips was born in Schenectady, NY, January 6, 1800; was married to Esaac Burgess on Oct. 30, 1820 at Constantia, Oswego County, NY. They came to Illinois in 1845 and have resided in the township of Lisbon all these years. Of the marriage seven children were born, four of whom survive - R. A. Burgess, McPherson, Kansas; W. T. Burgess, Goodland, Ind; J. M. Burgess and Mrs. I. L. Kelsey, of Lisbon. She was a kind soul who had a loving cherishing spirit.

"Forty-one years ago, when this kind soul came to Lisbon, the hardships and privations of a pioneer existence presented its usual aspect of primitive privileges and toil, cares and misgivings were the besetting offerings. These had no terrors for this life, fraught and thoroughly with confidence, energy and a hopeful heart. Years have sped on , finding these attributes ever uppermost and a loving cherishing spirit ever fresh and bright and cheerful. Sixty-six of the 86 years of that life were spent in the companionship of the one she chose to love as long as life should last, and the fulfillment of the vows taken on then have been proverbial for their exemplary character." Obituary in Kendall County Record 4/21/1886
