RE: Obit for David A Phillips
My husband's family on his mother's side were from around that area. One of them had kept a scrap book from family and friends from that area which includes obits, weddings, family gatherings and such. I am assuming that most came from maybe a Glasford paper, but none have that info for sure or even dates.

RE: Obit for David A Phillips

David A Phillips was born in New York state October 18, 1820. Came west in early manhood. Met and married Rebecca I. Knox in Indiana. To them were born seven children four boys and three girls. To mourn his departure he leaves a wife and six children, some other relatives, and a host of friends in Glasford, where he resided at the time of his death, and where he is respected by all who know him. After suffering with dropsy for about a year died January 3, 1899, being 78 years 2 months and 25 days of age. Funeral services were held at the residence Wednesday morning, Jan 4, by Rev. F. N. Wright, after which the body was taken to the Farmington cemetery for interment.
