My ancestors: Amos William Phillips

Amos William Phillips was born May 13, 1868 in Orange, Illinois. He died May 23, 1921 in Dibble, Oklahoma.

What I know:

  • Amos made his living as a farmer.
  • He was born in Illinois, but his family moved to Arkansas while he was a child.
  • He lived in Arkansas until his 30s, moved to Texas for a few years and then moved to Oklahoma. He lived in Oklahoma until he died at age 53.
  • He married Florence Alabama Warren Gosnell and they had 13 children.
  • He named his daughter Ethel and his son Ethal. (A fact that very early on confused me when doing research.)
  • He is buried in Dibble Cemetery.
