Wife of John PHILLIPS, mother-in-law of Rebecca Richardson PHILLIPS, mother of Joshua Thomas PHILLIPS who was killed in the Civil War (battle of Prairie Grove, probably buried at Fayetteville National Cemetery, Arkansas). All buried on the family farm. The land was actually owned by a Mr. Fatherson...see alternate cemetery entry for Fatherson Cemetery, Mount Sterling, Van Buren County. Family lore also places an unrelated infant who died on the Mormon Trail, buried in the cemetery.
