About Jeremiah Phillips

Jeremiah Phillips purchased the “mill place” from the William Blanchard estate at public auction on December 22, 1834. At $280, he was the high bidder for the property, which consisted of 73 acres 150 rods and contained a house, grist mill, and other buildings [Foster Deed Book 9, p. 228 (courtesy Margery I. Matthews)]. Courtesy of Ken Faig, per Corrections And Additions For Some Descendants of Asaph Phillips and Esther Whipple, Kenneth W. Faig, Jr., Moshassuck Press, 1993.

On July 16, 1848, Jeremiah's wife, Roby Phillips died of unknown causes at age 51. And on November 20, 1848, Jeremiah Phillips died in a grist mill accident. Due to the family's debts, there was little to inherit and the children were left penniless orphans.
