Thomas Phillips was born c. 1739, and died on the 8 August 1810 in Randolph County, Virginia. One genealogy written in the mid 1970s by Calbert Phillips alleged Thomas was the son of Moses Phillips who was born in England in 1704, susequently settling in the South Branch of the Potomac area. Calbert based that line of descent on a Civil War era reference of said name, date, and settlement which appeared in Captain John Riley Phillips' diary. That connection seems to be supported by recent DNA analysis of Phillips descendants. Scientific sampling shows the current front runner as Moses Phillips, born 1707, Wales, and died in eastern Virginia. Calbert's genealogy also alleged he was born in Welshire, England, and was married to Susannah Kittle. His date of birth, place of birth, father's name, and marriage information has never been fully verified. He was a soldier in Captain Ralph Stewart's Tygart Valley Company during Dunmore's War, 1774. Thomas Phillips served in the Virginia State Line as an Indian Fighter under General George Rogers Clark in the Revolutionary War. His name appeared on two petitions directed to the Virginia government, dated 6 November 1777 and 7 November 1780. Both petitions asked for the division of old Augusta County, Virginia and the creation of a new, county that was more representative. In 1787, he was a member of the first Grand Jury of Randolph County. During the same year he was elected as an Overseer of the Poor. He was granted 133 acres in the "Tygert's V. River" area in the year of 1784. His children included Henry, Issac, Joseph, John I., Thomas, William, Susannah, Moses, and Benjamin. He is believed buried in or near the old graveyard on his 1784 Land Grant (present day property of Dr. Michael Pritt) on the Georgetown Road between Elkins and Beverly. Many of the grandchildren of Thomas Phillips are buried in the Phillips Cemetery at Jimtown, WV. They include James B. Phillips, Moses J. Phillips, Achsah Phillips Cutright, Elizabeth Phillips, and Susan Phillips. Another grandson, George H. Phillips, is buried in his family's cemetery near Fairhope.
