Birth: Sep. 18, 1812, Germany
Death: Aug. 6, 1872
Pendleton County
Kentucky, USA

Phillip (German spelling Philip Wilhelm Twente) immigrated to America Sep.18 1840. He was married to a Sophia Stienecke on the 26 Oct 1838 in Germany. Sophia passed away in 1843, not sure of date her body was held in a vault. The Info is shown in cemetery records from the Weslyn Cemetery in Cincinnati Ohio. Her body was not buried until March of 1843. One child from this union lived to be an adult, a son Henry Frederick. A daughter Marie was born in Germany but there is no record of her coming to the U S A. We assume she did not live to make the trip. Phillip married a Mary Walhaker his second wife on 16 Feb 1843 she passed in 1845. No children have been found from this union.
Phillip then married his third wife Mary Sophia Culmire on July 10 1845 in Cincinnati. He lived the rest of his life with Mary Sophia. They are buried side by side on the farm where they raised their family. To this union 6 children were born Levi, Lucinda, Mary, Richard, Phillip and John. There is a step son spoken of in Phillips will named William. We believe William R to me Mary Culmire's son because of his birth date. William did take the last name of Twenty. No record of an adoption has been found. Their son Phillip I have no record of after 1880 census.
The Inscription on the bottom of the headstone reads: (It is the last stanza of a German poem and it read as follows:)

Rest sweetly, Rest suspended
peacefully under this grave
until the heavenly reward
shouts for its honest inhabitants
to receive their crown. [Edit]
