James Jackson "Jack" Phillips
Birth: Nov. 5, 1886
Calhoun County
Georgia, USA
Death: Mar. 25, 1970
Etowah County
Alabama, USA

*Beloved Grandfather*

J.J. "Jack" and Beulah Estelle were married December 8, 1912. He was a lifelong farmer, born in Calhoun County, Georgia, He lived for a short time in Oklahoma, but spent most of his life farming in north Alabama: Boaz, Marshall Co, and Attalla, Etowah Co, where he died. At his death he was survived by his loving wife and partner, eight children: Al, Lois, Mary Ella, Inez, Mae, Arazell, (living), and (living); grand children; preceded in death by baby daughter, Gladis. I have no knowledge of his biological parents and have been told his adoptive father was probably from Georgia, and was his name Granddaddy Phillips took. His adoptive mother's name was Mary Smith. He was lively and spry, quick to laugh, and as his wife, a true sweetheart.

With much appreciation to contributors re: my husband's granddaddy and his family history: Diane, #46982139, with her information re: DNA testing; also, to Colleen, #46935395, who found his Alabama Death Index (below) on, Draft Registration, and date of their marriage. Thank you both. *hugs*
