Fifteen years ago, authors Marguerite (Phillips) Ryan and Marilyn (Phillips) Stanton did not set out to publish a book when they began to gather data about their family. Their curiosity about  their forebears increased as they began to discover new data.
"Following Our Phillips Trail" began in Marilyn's thought process as she began to put the data together. That trail leads from Northern Virginia, to North Carolina, to Tennessee, to Ohio, and finally to Indiana. Marguerite's meticulous land research has brought many exciting discoveries. Trips to sites and pictures enhance that research!Family members and other researchers will be interested in the Quaker heritage, the family histories, the pictures, the land maps, and the family and descendant groups listed in their research. If you are a Phillips or descendant, see if your name is listed in the Every Name Index.Come. Go with them as they follow their "Phillips Trail" that other Phillips Descendants have contributed to also.
