Notes for Edward Dougherty PHILLIPS

1851 Birth:2333 Phillips Family Bible lists birth as "Edward D. Phillips son of Jonathan M. & Rachel J. Phillips his wife was born August the 5th 1851."

1870 U.S. Census:742 Edward Phillips not located in Porter County, Indiana.

1875 Birth of Daughter Blanche:415 Birth of daughter Blanche, based on 1880 census.

1878 Marriage:
1752 "The home of Cyrus and Lucinda Bay was the place, Nov. 28th the day, and the marriage, of Lucy E., their daughter, to Edward D. Philips, the happy event. The nuptial knot was tied by A. J. Clifton, pastor of the M. E. church."

1880 U.S. Census:415
Porter County, Indiana (Portage Township)
Enumerated 1 June 1880
Edward D. Phillips •• white, male, age 32 on June 1, 1880, married, laborer, born in New Jersey, father born on Atlantic Ocean, mother born in New Jersey
Lucy •• white, female, age 21 on June 1, 1880, keeping house, born in Indiana, father born in Ohio, mother born in Ohio

Edward Phillips and family enumerated as a separate family living in the dwelling of Elisha Arnold, age 66, and wife Phebe, both born in New York. The 1910 enumeration indicates there were four children born of this marriage, of which one was still living. Documentary proof exists for Irene L. (Porter County Vidette1751 death notice), Aurie Marie (death certificate1598), and Otis Edward (living at time of 1910 census). Although this couple were married in late 1878 and age 5 is very clearly written for Blanche in the 1880 census, perhaps an enumerator's error took place and Blanche was actually younger than 5 years of age. No other documented evidence of Blanche Phillips or other children of this marriage has yet been discovered; however, the 1890 census was lost and this family has not been located in the 1900 enumeration.

1886 Relocation to Englewood:1580,332 Edward D. Phillips and Lucy Bay took their family to Englewood, Chicago, Illinois.
