"The Phillips Family Tree" by John Phillips, 1986 & Ken & Lucille Phillips, 1994
HOMER CHARLES PHILLIPS was born July 21, 1878. Apparently he changed his name from Charles Homer. His mother the former Viola Whitsitt, died in 1881 but the family couldn't afford a large marker. In later years, Homer built a wood form, cast cement into it, and created a large monument which still stands in Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Scott County, Indiana.
Homer served in the Spanish American War and was photographed wearing his uniform in Manila. He spent most of his life in Brownsburg, Indiana, where he married Lottie May South June 29, 1912. Lottie was the widow of George Emmet South. She had been born February 28, 1879 to Thomas Garner and the former Ethel Florence Duncan. Lottie married George South November 28, 1900 and they had three children: Ramona Iris, Lowell Emmet and Helen Esther. George died September 20, 1908. Homer and Lottie had Lauretta Irene in 1913 and twins Albert Almond (died young) and Aldeth Aleen in 1920. Lottie died November 30, 1950. Homer died December 5, 1957 in a veteran's hospital.

The Scottsburg Chronicle, Scottsburg (Scott County) Indiana, December 12, 1957

Friends and relatives of Homer Phillips of Brownsburg Ind. regret to learn of his sudden death in Arizona one day last week. Presumably, he passed away in his sleep. Last rites were held at Brownsburg early this week. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Almond Phillips and was reared in this neighborhood.

The Scottsburg Chronicle, Scottsburg (Scott County) Indiana, May 26, 1926

Mrs. Mary Christie has received word of the death of her brother, Almond Phillips, at Los Angeles, Calif., where he had resided the past few years with his son, Porter. He was well known in this county, where he had spent most of his life.
