Our parents are Orville G and Lauretta B (Phillips) Sanders and so our ancestors are the Sanders and Phillips. My sister has worked on our family history since 1970. Our grandmother, Ida May (Brunner)(Mrs. Wm.H.)Phillips. and her sister-in-law, Grace (Phillips) Nichols, were given credit for research in the forward part of the book "History of Richard and Francina (Hart) Phillips and their Descendants", compiled by Henry Hackenbrach, published l951.
My sister has researched the Sanders side for years. "My grandmother, Lillie (McQuiston) Sanders left me a box of pictures and letters from her mother, Emma Phillips and father Joseph McQuiston. Emma"s dad was Andrew J Phillips (1844-1909), a civil war solder, and his wife was Helen Marr McKesson (1845-1882)."
She has a book about the McQuiston's, with our family line from Pennsylvania and North Carolina - Robert, Thomas, and James McQuiston.
She also has a letter from our grandfather, Grady B. Sanders, listing his family members, as well as many other photos, newspaper clippings, etc.
Cherie Ann Sanders Hi, I believe that I was a classmate of Cherie's. I went to Wichita High School North and graduated in 1966. If this is our classmate, I would like to put her memorial on our class website please. Thank you Diana #46941483
Henry H. Hohenschild Thank You for taking the time to create a memorial for Henry H. Hohenschild. I would like to request that Mr. Hohenschild be nominated to Find A Grave by you, as the memorial creator, as "famous" under the Artists & Architect category. At one time, Mr. Hohenschild was the State Architect of Missouri. Several of his buildings, including the 1903 Courthouse on Route 66 in Waynesville, are still standing and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can read more about Mr. Hohenschild here: http://rollapreservation.blogspot.com/2013/01/henry-h-hohenschild-rollas-architect.html
Thanks For Sharing This Info My grandmother, Alma "Pearl" Phillips Teyema was a relative of Andrew Jackson Phillips. There are quite a few Phillips relatives from that branch of the family out here in Oregon. We were told that A.J. Phillips rode with Custer and that the only reason he didn't die at Little Bighorn was because Custer had sent him off on some other errand or message run and wasn't there when it occurred. Additionally, we were told that A. J. Phillips was there the night that Buffalo Bill Cody won a bet that he could get his horse to get up on a billiard table, while mounted. The story goes that the he was able to get the horse up on the table, but that the horse broke a leg getting down off the table and Buffalo Bill had to put the horse down.
Brunner Ive transfered the memorials to you. Are you related to Lois Brunner? If so, I would be happy to transfer her to you as well: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=brunner&GSiman=1&GScid=30337&GRid=96031271&
Phillips graves I just saw all of the Phillips graves that you had added over the last few months. I wondered if you are related to this family. The photos were very nice. I had a few questions of discrepancies between your information and what has been passed down to me. We have a few overlapping graves so I'd like to remove mine. Could you please email me? My direct email is jphilgen at yahoo.com.
