Samuel Phipps
Birth: Jun. 1, 1735
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 5, 1841
Butler
Richland County
Ohio, USA

Samuel Phipps was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of Nathan and Sarah Davis Phipps. He was a great grandson of the original immigrant ancestor, Joseph and his wife Sarah Binfield Phipps of England. During the Revolutionary War, he served as a private in Captain Joseph Johnson's Company, 6th Class, 4th Battalion of Goshen Township, Chester County, Pa.

In 1763, he married Mary Marshall, a cousin of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne. Sam and Mary were the parents of nine children:
John, who married Catherine Haney and settled in Venango County, PA;
Sarah, who married Wiiliam Wise;
Samuel, who died in the Maumee, last campaign against the Indians, while serving under General Anthony Wayne;
Rachel, who married Jeptha Carleton;
Joseph;
Mary, who married John Duncan;
Robert, who married Margaret Halferty;
Nathan, who married Edith Updegraff and moved to Clarion County, PA from Venango County, PA;
and James Phipps.

Samuel appears to have been a man of remarkable vigor, living past the age of 105. He and Mary moved from Pennsylvania to a farm in Butler, Ohio in 1815, where his son Robert had settled. Samuel was buried behind his wagonshed in the family burial grounds. This land became a field on the property of the Mishey farm. Sam's original headstone was destroyed and his grave was plowed under. A memorial marker erected by the Constitution Chapter of the Ohio S.A.R. stands near the intersection of US Route 97 and Highland Avenue, behind the "Welcome to Bulter" sign to mark his life and military service.
