He is the son of Jones and Elizabeth Mayes Elliott and the grandson of John and Martha ...Elliott and Charles and Elizabeth Davenport Maryes all of Halifax Co. VA.

Re: Phillips in Henderson Co, Ky
I'm a descendant of James D. Phillips and Sylvania Elliott. Those other names don't look familiar, but it's possible. The family moved to Kentucky from Virginia after the Civil War. They were there in the 1870 and 1800 censuses, but after that they left. They didn't have deep roots in Kentucky and probably not much family there. I don't know if James D. Phillips died in Kentucky or made it to Texas with the rest of the family. I'd love to know if he's buried in Henderson County, KY if you have any information. Thanks.
