He moved to Martinsburg, N.Y. with his parents when five years of age, and his education was acquired in the common schools of that town, at Lowville Academy, Kimball Union Academy, New Hampshire, and graduated at the State Normal College at Albany, N.Y. in 1854. He began his active career as a teacher, serving in that capacity for several terms in Lewis county, N.Y., and in Gloucewster, Mass. He then changed occupations completely, becoming editor and proprietor of the Northern Journal and Journal and Republican, these duties covering a period from October 1858 to Jan. 1, 1864, and, being a man of strong personality, profound wisdom in the affairs of everyday life and courage to sustain his convictions, he attained prominence along that line. From 1870 to 1878 he was engaged in business in Fort Scott, Kansas, and in the latter year again became the proprietor of the JOurnal and Republican, and since then has resided in Lowville, N.Y., where he has identified himself with all its interests and in considered one of its most valuable and influential citizens.
In his political convictions he supports the Republican party by his influence and vote, and, possessing executive ability of a high order, and being a man of fertile resources, great ability and untiring energy, he was chosen to fill the important positions in the gift of his party. His first vote was for John C. Fremont, in 1856, and in 1860 he was elected president of the Republican Club of Lowville, and accompanied Horace Greeley, then editor of the New York Tribune, from Boonville to Lowville in a carriage, as there was no railroad at that time to Lowville. Mr. Phillips presided at a Republican mass meeting on the Lowville Academy campus, in June, 1860, which was addressed by Horace Greeley in behalf of the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. Mr. Phillips was present at the Grand Review of the armies of Generals Grant and Sherman at Washington in May, 1865, at the close of the civil war. He also occupied a place on the platform at the funeral of Abraham Lincoln in New York City, and heard the great oration of the historian, George Bancroft, on that memorable occasion.
At the close of the war, Mr. Phillips was designated by the Republican state committee of New York to go to General Grant's headquarters at City Point, Virginia, in Oct., 1864, under the law of New York state, to collect the soldiers' votes. He had a pass signed by Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. This was at the second election of Abraham Lincoln.
Mr. Phillips never sought public office, although his friends often offered to present his name to conventions for prominent positions, which he invariably declined. He was a member of assembly in 1867; chairman of the Republican county committee of Lewis county eight years, 1884-92; delegate to Republican national convention in Chicago in 1888, representing the counties of Oneida and Lewis; appointed postmaster at Lowville by President Harrison in 1890; appointed by Governor Black in 1898 a member of the Universal Exposition Commission to the Paris Exposition, representing the state of New York; he was one of five members who had charge of the state exhibits at Paris, and in 1895 was appointed by Governor Morton one of the managers of the Craig Colony of New York.
In all these varied positions he performed his part in such a manner as to win the approbation and approval of all concerned. In 1892 he was elected a trustee of Lowville Academy. He is a member of Lowville Lodge, No. 134, Free and Accepted Masons, and of the Lowville Club. Scrupulously honorable in all his dealings with mankind, Mr. Phillips bears a reputation for public and private integrity, and being sociable and genial in disposition has won and retained a large number of friends.
Mr. Phillips married at Martinsburg, N.Y., Dec. 20, 1865, Christine K. Scovil, born in Martinsburg, June 6, 1840, daughter of Carlos Philander and Mary (Rockwell) Scovil, who were the parents of one other child, George R. Scovil. Carlos P.

He attended the graded schools, Lowville Academy, St. John's Military School, Lawrence, New Jersey, and Princeton Preparatory School. He entered the employ of the Journal and Republican, of which his father is proprietor, in 1899, remaining until 1901, when he was appointed secretary to Congressman Charles L. Knapp, in which capacity he served until 1903, when he tendered his resignation and asssumed the duties of assocaite editor of the Journal and Republican, which office he is filling at the present time (1910).
He is a Republican in politics, and has served as chairman of the Republican county committee of Lewis county for four years, 1906 to 1910. He holds membership in the Lowville Club, Crooked Lake Fish and Game Club, Black River Vally Club, Watertown, N.Y., and Crescent Yacht Club, Chaumont, N.Y.

[Transcriber's note: this material was published in 1910, so any subsequent children are not on the list].
There is little doubt concerning the origin and ancient ancestry of the Phillips family of England and Wales. Like most names having the possessive form, it is undoubtedly of Welsh origin, though some English authorities tell us the patryonymic is of ancient and classic origin, derived from the Greek Philos-hippos, meaning horse lover. In Great Britain it has been known in some of its various forms for more than five hundred years, and when written Phillipse is said to be of Welsh usage, while Philips is distinctly English. In this country variations of spelling in most names merely indicate the uneducated condition of the majority of early immigrants, and especially town and parish clerks. In fact, records kept by many ministers show fearful and wonderful spelling capacity, as viewed by modern standards. Many representatives of this surname crossed the Atlantic and settled in New England during the seventeenth century. Many English authorities assert that the name originated in Wales, whence it spread throughout the United Kingdom. Its transplantation to New England began before 1630 and was continued at frequent intervals during the next three-quarters of a century. It cannot be said that all of these immigrant ancestors were of one kin, for indeed, they were not; nor is it to be assumed that in the old world they all descended from the same ancient head. A recent faithful chronicler of the family history has said, "It is exceedingly difficult to establish the relation which existed between many of those earlier Phillipses or to trace out satisfactorily the several lines of their descendants." In Great Britain the principal spellings found are Phillips, Philips, Phillipse, Philipps, but the first of these is in almost unanimous use here.
(I) Michael Phillips is found of record at Newport, Rhode Island, as early as 1668, when he was a freeman there. It is probable that he had been a resident long before, but the destruction of Newport records by British soldiery has made impossible any further discovery. He died at Newport in 1685-6, and evidently left considerable property, as shown by transactions of his widow, Barbara, who was executrix of his estate. She married (second) Aug. 17, 1686, Edward Inman, and she and her second husband deeded various parcels of land to the children of Michael Phillips, at various times. She survived her second husband, and was living as his widow Aug. 26, 1706.
Michael Phillips' children were:
John, William, James, Richard, Joseph, Alice and probably Thomas.
(II) Joseph, son of Michael and Barbara Phillips, was born about 1655, probably in Newport, and resided in Providence, Rhode Island, where he died Sept. 3, 1719. He was taxed there as early as 1686, and his tax June 16, 1713 was six shillings. The inventory of his estate amounts to one hundred five pounds, five shillings.
He married Elizabeth, daughter of John and Elizabeth Malavery, who died in the same year, but after him. By his will, made Aug. 21, preceding his death, she was to receive his house and lands for life. The inventory of his possessions included live stock, sword, belt, gun, warming pad and many other items. It is evident that he was a farmer.
John, Joseph, David, Daniel, Elizabeth, Phebe and Jeremiah.
(III) Joseph (2), son of Joseph (1) and Elizabeth (Malavery) Phillips, was born about 1688 in Providence, and settled in Bristol, Rhode Island, where he presumably passed his life. His wife's name was Susannah.

Susannah, Jan. 26, 1721.
(IV) Joseph (3), eldest child of Joseph (2) and Susannah Phillips, was born Oct. 7, 1711, in Bristol, and disappears from the record after 1750. An extended serach has failed to locate him, and he may have continued to reside in his native town through life.
He married (first) June 1, 1738, Rebecca Norris, born Aug. 24, 1719, in Bristol, daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Norris of that town. Her death is not of record in that town. Her married (second) July 13, 1749, Sarah Vanis. There is record in Bristol of only one child of the second marriage, and none of the first. It is probable he moved into Massachusetts.
(V) Thomas, eldest child of Joseph (3) and Sarah (Vinis) Phillips, was born May 21, 1740, in Bristol, Rhode Island, and died in Petersburg, New York in 1834. He settled in Petersburg, N.Y. immediately after the revolution, and engaged in farming there until his death. He had two sons, Thomas and Samuel, and ten daughters.
(VI) Samuel, son of Thomas Phillips, was born in 1775, was reared in Petersburg, N.Y., and died at South Hammond, same state, Dec. 28, 1845. In early life he lived near Hoosick Falls; later spent some years at Trenteon Falls, N.Y., where he was a farmer, and went to Hammond in old age to be near his children.
He married Betsey, probably a daughter of Joseph Allen, a native of Rhode Island and pioneer settler of Petersburg.
Allen, Samuel, Christopher (q.v.), Russell, Thomas (q.v.), Gardner, Betsey Allen, Patty and Polly.
(VII) Christopher, third son of Samuel and Betsey (Allen) Phillips, was born about 1796, and was reared near Trenton Falls, whence he removed to South Hammond, St. Lawrence county, about 1822. He was a blacksmith, and followed that trade nearly twenty years at South Hammond, after which he engaged in farming and so continued the remainder of his active life. He purchased and cleared land south of the village of South Hammond, and accumulated a good estate by his industry and prudent management. From his mother, who is described as a small and dark woman, he inherited a swarthy complexion, and was one of the strongest men of the region where he resided.
He was a member of officer of the Methodist church, a Whig in time of the party, and a Republican from organization of that party, and an officer of the militia.
He married in 1820, near Trenton Falls, Letitia VanAntwerp, of old Dutch stock, born 1802, died at South Hammond, Jan. 16, 1891. Their first two children, Louis Winchel and Jane, died in early infancy. The others were:
Samuel (mentioned below).
Wallace, born March 13, 1831.
Jane Antoinette, Aug. 8, 1836.
The junior son kept a hotel at Fonda, New York, where he died, aged forty-seven years.
The daughter became the wife of Henry King, a farmer of South Hammond.
(VIII) Samuel (2), elder son of Christopher and Letitia (Van Antwerp) Phillips, was born Dec. 25, 1825, in South Hammond, and died there May 3, 1898. He attended the public schools near his home and in Gouverneur, being a classmate of Bishop Peck at the latter. In young manhood he taught school, and subsequently settled down to farming on land which he purchaswed near the paternal homestead. His commission as captain of militia is preserved by his son in New York. For many years he served as justice of the peace and also as supervisor, and was a deacon of the Baptist church.
Politically he was first a Whig, and gave allegiance to that party's successor, the Republican. In his last years he suffered much from asthma, but he was always cheerful and optimistic, extending pleasant influences to those around him. He was a man of large stature, standing over six feet in height, and his sons are tall men.
He married, Oct. 15, 1850, in Champion, N.Y., Mary Sophronia Merrill, born Nov. 4, 1828, in that town, daughter of Moses Cook and Philena (Crandall) Merrill of Champion (see Merrill, VI).
They were the parents of three sons,
Glyndon Samuel, Christopher and Charles Ernestus, all mentioned at length below.
(IX) Glydon Samuel, eldest son of Samuel (2) and Mary S. (Merrill) Phillips, was born Oct. 15, 1852, in Hammond, and received his education in the common school of his native town. He remained on the homestead until 1873, and spent the succeeding four years engaged in the grocery and crokery trade at Brockville, Canada, after which he returned to the homestead and has since resided thereon, engaged in agriculture.
He is an active Republican; was elected supervisor of Hammond in 1894, continuously holding the office by re-election until he resigned Jan., 1910, to take the office of county sheriff, to which he was elected in 1909.
He is a member of the Baptist church, and the Ogdensburg Republican Club, and is affiliated with Hammond Lodge, A.F.A.M.; Hammond Lodge and Ogdensburg Encampment, I.O.O.F.; Independent Order of Foresters, and is past high chief ranger of the state in the last named order. He was a delegate from the high court to the sessions of the supreme court at Toronto, Ontario, Los Angeles, California, and Atlanatic City, New Jersey.
Mr. Phillips married, at Redwood, Jefferson county, N.Y. in 1874, Sarah J. Pierce, a native of that place, elder daughter of Peter and Marie (Hosmer) Pierce, the former a glass worker of that town.

(IX) Wendell Christopher, second son of Samuel (2) and Mary S. (Merrill) Phillips, was born June 9, 1857, at South Hammond, and began his education in the public school opposite his home, being subsequently a student of the Potsdam Normal School. He engaged alternately in teaching and farming until 1879, when he went to New York City and entered the New York University Medical College, from which he was graduated in 1882. He immediately began the practice of medicine in New York and has since continued, making a specialty of ear, nose and throat diseases. He is ear surgeon of the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, and professor of diseases of the ear at the New York Post-Graduate Medical School.

He is a member of the Calvary Baptist Church of New York, the Republican Club, and the St. Lawrence County Society in New York. These connections indicate that Dr. Phillips is thoroughly successful in his profession, and his genial nature and manly character have made him many friends in the metropolis.
He married (first) in 1885, Sarah Wakeman, a native of New York, who died March 16, 1887. The only child of this marriage, Sarah Wakeman, died at the age of five months.

(Merrill) Phillips, was born Feb. 22, 1861, in Hammond, and attended the district school near home, in the old stone school house, remaining upon the home farm until he attained his majority. In 1882 he went to New York and began a study of medicine in New York University Medical College, maintaining himself at the same time by working nights on the elevated railroad. He was obliged to spend much or his days in study, and for a long period his average amount of sleep was but four hours out of the twentyy-four. So diligently did he apply himself that he completed the three years' work of the college in two years, and was graduated in 1884. He immediately began to practice in Harlem, and has achieved a merited success. He has pursued a general practice among wealthy families of the vicinity where he resides, and has all the work his strength will permit. Dr. Phillips has undergone three severe surgical operations, one being occasioned by appendicitis, a second by gall-stones, and the third by a tumor of the pancreas. In spite of the sever drain upon his vitality as a result of his experiences, he is still actively engaged in practice, and his strong will has carried him forward with his accustomed success.
He is a member of the New York County Medical Association, and a Republican in politics. He attends the Baptist church, in which he holds a pew, and is esteemed and respected by those privileged to know him.
