Birth: 1826, France
Death: Aug. 26, 1862
Meeker County
Minnesota, USA

Phillip Deck was one of four men killed by the Dakota Indians in Manannah Township in northwestern Meeker County, Minnesota, on August 26, 1862. The Dakota were frustrated with their situation for a variety of reasons, and began an Uprising on August 18, 1862. Deck and a small party of men from the area, had fled their homes when they heard of the Uprising. On August 26, they decided to return to their homes to retrieve some of their possessions. They were attacked by a small Dakota party, and the four men were killed. Deck shares a gravestone in the Manannah Cemetery with Linus Howe and Joseph Page. The fourth victim, Wilmot Maybee is buried near them. Deck's story is related on pages 17 and 18 of "Dakota Uprising Victims: Gravestones & Stories," published by Curtis Dahlin in 2007. The inscription on Deck's gravestone reads "Phillip H. Deck, Born in France 1826, killed at Manannah by Indians. Aug. 26, 1862. Aged 36 yrs. 3 ms. & 2 ds. Rest in Peace."
