Event Type: Marriage
Event Date: 09 Mar 1901
Event Place: Shelby, Tennessee, United States

Spouse's Gender: Female
GS Film Number: 001148815

Citing this Record
"Tennessee, County Marriages, 1790-1950," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKH9-SJLC : 22 December 2016), J M Parks and Lillie Phillips, 09 Mar 1901; citing Shelby, Tennessee, United States, Marriage, p. , Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville and county clerk offices from various counties; FHL microfilm 1,148,815.


Later Lillie married a Mathew Phillips (Her father's nameshake). The family was living in Jackson, AR. according to the following 1910 US Census record. Earl was 2 y/o:

Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Matthew Phillips Head M 32 Indiana
Lillie Phillips Wife F 23 Tennessee
Arthur Phillips Son M 1 Arkansas
Harvey Parks Stepson M 7 Tennessee
Pearl Parks Stepdaughter F 5 Tennessee
Earl Ray Stepson M 2 Arkansas
Jno W Kirkpatrick Boarder M 52 Indiana

Citing this Record
"United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MKV3-6R2 : accessed 2 June 2018), Jno W Kirkpatrick in household of Matthew Phillips, Bird, Jackson, Arkansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 61, sheet 19B, family 240, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1982), roll 53; FHL microfilm 1,374,066.


Based on the 1910 US Census record, Harvey and Pearl (7 and 5 y/o) were the children of Lillie's 1st husband J M Parks. So Lillie married Earl's father after Harvey and Pearl were born, but she married Mathew Phillips very shorty after Earl was born.


Earl's obituary can be seen at the top of the 5th column on the following image:
