According to the 1870 U.S. census Philip Harold or Herold was born in Germany and immigrated to America about 1850. He married Margaret Fett sometime before 1858, when their first known child was born. They settled first in Boston, then sailed around the Horn to San Francisco by 1860. They had 8 known children, namley: Charles born in Boston 12 June 1858; Anne Catherine born 17 April 1860 in San Francisco [as were the rest of her siblings]; Josephine Margaret born 29 December 1862; Philipinne born April 1864; Philip born 20 April 1866; Johan George born 13 Oct 1868; Friedrich Wilhelm born 6 April 1871 and a daughter born in 1874. Philip was a well known Blacksmith. He died 3 June 1877 in San Francisco at supposedly 57 years of age, however the 1860 & 1870 census show he would have been born about 1826.

He was originally buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in San Francisco but when the city became too large and needed the space, all the remains were removed to the Greenlawn Cemetery in Colma and placed in a private section that is not open to the public.
