My great great grandfather James Frank Phillips

I believe he is the same James Phillips found in Pleasant Twp, Switzerland County 1850 Census living with Simeon Slawson and family and he is age 10.

Also in Pleasant Twp, Switzerland County, in 1860 living with Augustus Welch and family at age 19.

He enlisted on 22 Aug 1861 in Switzerland County into Co A, 3rd Indiana Cavalry Reg, listing his residence as Switzerland County, Indiana.

His obituary:

He married Elizabeth Ann Russell (Lizzie A.)in Indianapolis on 8 Jan 1874. I have no proof of his whereabouts between his release from Civil War and his marriage in Indianapolis in 1874.

His death certificate only lists his father as George Phillips born in Indiana and mother UNK.

His main occupation was a teamster and he lived most of his life after marriage on East Morris Street in Indianapolis.

Effie M, Hervert(Hervy)Franklin, Everett George, Inez Martha, Electa Melvina, and Ralph Russell Phillips all born between 1874 and 1889.
