Oh yes I would like a copy of the picture of Thomas W. & Sarah M. Phillips. I have only one photo of Martha Murrell Robinson, Sarah sister.

Is this a real photo or a negative, an old tin type?? Can you get a laser copy done??

Have you tried the Miller Cem in Miller, that is were the Sarah's parents are buried. Thomas may be buried there.

Please let me know the cost and I will repay you.

> Hi Kari, Saw your data on Ancestry. Do you know if Sarah Murrell married a Busch after Thomas W Phillips passed away. It seems my great grandfather married her after his wife passed away. Need to confirm but sure would like to touch base.

From what I am now hearing from my cousins who knew the line Michael and Sara never had any kids them selves. This is a work in progress because I just discovered, Sat 9 Mar, that Michael Busch married again after Anna passed away. My dad is 94 and has never mentioned this to me so it was kinda suprised when I found them on the 1920 census. Fired off some email and sure enough they were married. Here is what I have so far and more is coming.

> Hi Kari,
> I was thinking about you. I had just received information that Maggie Phillips had run an ad for a husband and my Grandfather Mike Busch started writing to her and that is how they actually got together. Sure would like to find a copy of that ad. Strange the stories we find. I got this from my Aunt Alice's son Chet Smith. Alice was Mike Busch's second daughter.
