About James Phillips, Sr.

James married Mary Richmond and had at least six children. He was one of the original purchasers of Taunton, MA, North Purchase in 1668. He was killed by Indians in 1676 during the King Philips War. His sons James, Seth and some of the other children were mentioned in the Letters of Administaration for his Will. In the Record Book, Town Records, Taunton, MA, I found a list of the children of James Phillips and one of those children was Seth Phillips who was born August 14, 1671. Seth married Abigail Unknown. I was not able to locate their marriage but I did find a record for the birth of their son Elisha in the Record Book, Town Records, Little Compton, RI, Page 12.
