I am searching for information on William Duvall. I believe that he may have been my grandfather's brother. The only information we have found so far is that William Duvall owned The Logan House in Phillips County and that he sold out to Matt Osborne of Belmont Township. There were also references to Duvall and Hill which we believe was a livery barn. We believe that the hotel was sold about November 5, 1885 and that he, his wife and children may have left for Roseville, Ill. around November 19,1885. They had a niece named Miss Mary E. Stone who traveled with them. If anyone has any information on this family I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.

My g-great grandfather was Edwin Maxwell Taylor, Cloud County pioneer. He had a brother, Sam Taylor, wife Jane (maybe June), and daughter Ella, also daughter Marjie, who died of Diptheria at age 8, who homesteaded near Logan, Kansas, presumably in Phillips County, although I don't know if its close to a county line to where he would have been "just over" the line in another county. We have one letter with a Logan return address on it, dated in 1889, and another with a Phillipsburg return address, dated 1897, from Sam. He would have come to Phillips County in late 1870's or early 1880's, having spent some years after 1871 in Cloud County with brother Edwin. Am looking for Sam and descendants to make contact with "cousins" and in hopes they may have clues for ancestors of Ed and Sam, as I have reached a dead end with them. I know they came from Keota, Iowa, had a father James, who died on June 29, 1889, and brothers Willie, Brainard, and James (Jr.?), and sister Mary, probably more.

Samuel and Betsey (PIXLEY) (PHILLIPS), of Berkshire County, Mass., had seven children, including my ancestor, Laura (Phillips) Fairchild. Betsey (Pixley) Phillips died and Samuel married, second, 1820, Mary McCOLLUM. They had eight children, including William Phillips, born at Berkshire County, 2 March 1827 or 1829; died at Leavenworth, Kansas, 1 September 1856; and married, likely in Illinois, 1853, Mary Ackerson. William Phillips was admitted to practice law in Illinois, 1854. From a history of Great Barrington, Mass.: "William Phillips ... signed a protest against the [election] frauds practiced. A few days after, he was seized by a mob ... tarred and feathered, ridden upon a rail, and sold at auction to a negro who was compelled to purchase him ... Again, at the election of September 1, 1856, Leavenworth was invaded by a large body of ruffians, who, under pretense of searching for arms, plundered ... Mr. Phillips refused to submit to their search, and bravely defended his house against the assailants, killing two of them, but was shot and killed, in his house, which was afterward burned." From another Berkshire history: "Under pretense of searching for arms they approached the house of William Phillips, the lawyer who had been tarred and feathered and carried to Missouri. Phillips supposing he was to be subjected to a similar outrage, resolved not to submit ... and stood upon his defense. In repelling the assault of the mob, he killed two of them, when the others burst into the house and poured a volley of balls into his body, killing him instantly, in the presence of his wife and his brother Jared's wife. His brother, who also was present, had an arm badly broken with bullets, and was compelled to submit to an amputation ... After William was killed they took his law library and heaped his books up on the street and burned them; his office and barn they burned, and they stole his horse." Jared PHILLIPS, born 1828 or 1830; married Eliza P. PERRY. Jared Phillips later "[was in] Washington serving under Capt. Jim Lane, in the east room of the White House ... Jim Lane and his company of ... Frontier Guards ... probably saved the President's life, as all Southern men knew these men could and would shoot." Jared Phillips was murdered by a group of Indians, while leading a wagon train to California, in 1862. Before he died, he fathered a son, Arthur PHILLIPS. I have never found Arthur in any census record. William Phillips' wife, Mary Ackerson, later married another brother, Jackson Phillips, and they went to Wisconsin. Phillips County Kansas was named for the foregoing William Phillips. Tom Wilbur, 1784 Mirabeau Drive, Okemos, Michigan 48864.

According to a copy out of an unknown book sent to me by the Phillips County Historical Society, they moved to Kirwin in 1874.
David was born in Dutchess County, NY around 1826.
Matilda was was from Platt Co., MO.
Their children were Alice, Sophia, Martha (Mattie), George, Mary Anna, Charles, David Jr., and Minnie.
David was a successful land attorney and his name appears on the Constitution of the State of Kansas. The document that the Historical Society sent also states that he was a member of the Blue Lodge A.F. and A.M.
Mary Anna was my great grandmother and her obituary says "she lived with her parents at Kirwin, and graduated from Kirwin High School". No year was given. Mary Anna married William Clay BROWN on Aug. 5, 1890 at Baileyville, KS. Through the years they lived in Concordia, Alton, and finally settled in Beloit.
Alice married George B. CHAPIN on May 17, 1883 at the David DODGE residence at Kirwin.
Martha was married to Harry POWELL - not sure of date or place. Any information on the DODGE name would be greatly appreciated.

JOHNSON, NEFF, SNIDER, MALLOT, ROLLER Looking for any and all information on John J. JOHNSON family who moved to Phillips Co., KS, from Kosciusko Co., IN approx 1882. On May 21, 1871, John J. JOHNSON married Susan SNIDER NEFF in Kosciusko Co., IN. Susan's child Ella Azaela JOHNSON was born Jun 21, 1871. We believe Susan was the widow of Daniel NEFF, who died Feb. 1871 in Preble Co., OH. John was born 22 Mar 1833 and died 16 May 1902, don't know where. Susan was born about 1835 in Preble Co., OH. She married Daniel NEFF on 25 June 1850 in Preble Co., OH. They had 5 children born from 1851 to 1859 or thereabouts, in OH and/or IN. At some point after Susan and John's marriage, Susan died and John married Mary Elizabeth MALLOT (29 May 1834 - 9 Feb 1912). I don't know if Susan died before or after the family moved to Phillips Co. in 1882, or whether John married Mary in IN or KS. Ella Azaela (sp. many different ways) JOHNSON married Alfred ROLLER in 28 August 1886 in Phillipsburg, Phillips Co., KS, married by H. C. Spaulding. Al was born in Rockport, IL on 8 April 1866 and died at Agra, KS, 27 Feb 1939. He was a farmer living north of Phillipsburg for many years. Ella and Al's daughter Martha Ann ROLLER (my grandmother) was born 26 June 1887. Ella filed divorce action #929 (#D361) in Phillips Co. on 13 Nov. 1889, charged abandonment. Al Roller didn't answer the peition so Ella was awarded custody of Martha and took back her maiden name. Al was living in Newton, Harvey Co., KS, or in McPherson, McPherson Co., KS, at the time. (Clerk of DIstrict Court files of Phillips Co.) Ella remarried William R. GILBERT in Alma, NE, on 4 Feb 1890. They had ten children. They lived in the Bird City, KS, area and later to Goodland, KS. Alfred Roller remarried Alice LAKE on 15 Sept. 1892. They had 13 children and lived in the Phillipsburg area. Al died 27 Feb. 1939 and was buried in Fairview Cemetery in Phillips Co. Questions: 1. Who was John Johnson's wife in the 1885 Kansas census? Mary or Susan? Is Ella listed as their child? Are there any other children? Since they moved to Phillips Co. in 1882, the 1880 census wouldn't help; and don't know if Ella was living back with the Johnsons in 1890. Where are John, Susan, and Mary buried? Did John have a wife even previous to Susan, in view of his age? 2. Who were Alfred Roller's parents and siblings if any? When did he move to Phillips Co.? 3. Who were Mary MALLOT's parents? From where? 4. Did John Johnson adopt Ella, or just put his name on the birth certificate because he was married to Susan at the time? I have xerox copies of photos and/or can easily get photos of the graves of Ella and Will GILBERT; Alfred and Alice ROLLER; Martha Ann ROLLER LONG and Everett LONG. Also have extensive information on descendants. Ella had more than 100 descendants at the time of her death; Martha Ann had more than 100 descendants at the time of her death. Thank you very much, Carol Regehr Manhattan, Riley Co., KS Note from County Coordinator, this query has received research assistance on ROLLER from the Phillips County Coordinator of KsGenWeb .

Would like to contact fellow researchers of the LUMPKIN family in the Phillips Co area. Robert and Elizabeth (Forest) LUMPKIN, both born in Va., migrated to TN, then on to Randolph Co., IN. and they are buried there. Their oldest son John LUMPKINS, born 1785, remained in McNairy Co., TN. A small green book was printed on this family some years ago which I bought a copy of from a LUMPKIN at his grocery store in Phillipsburg about 1983. I have the line of descent from Robert through his son John on down to my wife Cecelia LUMPKIN born in Havre, Montana 1924. Though John is mentioned in the green book, his line is not followed as the other's are.

My Grandmother Barbra Shuck came to Philips Co., KS in 1878 with her parents, Zacharia T. SHUCK or SHOOK and Mary WORKMAN. They came from Preston, MN and homesteaded south of Naponee, NE on the Kansas side of the state line in the Phillipsburg area. My Great Grandfather Stephen Workman had already arrived and settled in the same general area. I compiled & printed records of the Shuck family in 1976. Also have the Workman Family History published by Thelma C. Anderson in 1962. Will share personal records & do look up in the Workman Book. By the way there is a picture of the Z.T. Shuck's Kansas homestead & sod house on my website. http://www.tigerpaw.com/bhammond/tresearch on the photo album page.
Also have compiled and printed a book on the WILLIAMS family, who had a branch in Phillips County as well. A few pictures of them also in the photo album mentioned above. Welcome correspondence on any of these families. During the dust bowl years of the depression our family moved west, but had ties there for many years. my e-mail address is: Barbara Hammond, bhammond@tigerpaw.com
