BELOW: Crops of images from Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002, in which the
marriages of Ezra Phillips to Hannah Randolph, and John Phillips Jr. to Sarah Rose,
both in Greene County, Tennessee, are documented. Marriages were recorded in some
Tennessee counties prior to statehood, including Greene County, beginning in 1782.
BELOW: Crops of images from North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868, in which the
marriages of Mary Ann Philips to Samuel Cummins, Ruth Philips to William Spiers, and
James Philips to Markeret Johnston are recorded. These records were abstracted by
the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Most contain the names of the groom, bride,
bondsman, and witness, and the date of the marriage.
Jonathan Phillips is believed to have married Mary Parsons of Surry County,
c. 1788. This is consistent with census records for 1790 and 1800, shown below.
TOP: 1790 census records for Surry County, North Carolina, showing Jonathan
Phillips living with two women (his wife Mary and eldest daughter Rebecca).
BOTTOM: 1800 census records for Surry County, North Carolina. Only the heads of
households are identified by name. All others are distinguished only by gender (males
on the left, females on the right) and by age bracket (under 10, 10-15, 16-25, 26-44,
45 and over, left to right). The census records show Jonathan Philips, aged 26-44,
living with his wife (Mary), aged 26-44, one daughter aged 10-15 (Rebecca), one
daughter under 10 (Nancy), and three sons under 10 (Jonathan Jr., Nathan, and Caleb).
NOTES: No marriage record has been found for Robert and Phebe Philips (her first
name is known from the 1850 census for Coles County, Illinois), for Rebekah Phillips
and Mr. Williams (surname known from John's will, first name unknown), or for Elijah
Phillips or Stephen Phillips, sons of Diannah, both of whom were married in the
1820 census for Jackson County, Tennessee. It is not known if Thomas Phillips,
first-born son of John, or Mary, daughter of Diannah, ever married.
