Researcher Jack Dwyer says this is not Jackson PHIPPS (1820-1899 ancestor of Judy Henley Phillips) who lived and died in Grundy County. Mr. Dwyer gives the following information: "Andrew Jackson PHIPPS was born in 1838 in Alabama (I believe it was Jacksonville, AL, the birthplace of his brother, David W. PHIPPS). He was the son of Amos PHIPPS. The family moved from Jacksonville, AL, when the boys were young and settled in Grundy Co., TN. Their boyhood friend was William B. PATTIE, who joined the regiment together with the PHIPPS brothers on April 29, 1861. On March 4, 1913, PATTIE provided a sworn deposition to David PHIPPS' pension application. Andrew Jackson PHIPPS enlisted into Comp. A, First Tennessee Infantry Regiment, on April 29, 1861, at Pelham, TN. In his deposition for David PHIPPS' pension, A.J. PHIPPS mentions, Captain A.E. PATTON, Col. Peter TURNEY, and General Barnard E. BEE, the 3rd Brigade Commander of JOHNSTON'S Division (First TN Inf. Reg't. was attached to this brigade at the Battle of First Manasass). Andrew Jackson PHIPPS was in all the major battles from First Manasass to Gettsyburg. He participated in the battles on July 1st and 3rd at Gettysburg. He participated in Pickett's Charge and was one of number of men from the First TN that made it over the wall at the angle. He was captured by the 14th Connecticut Infantry and was imprisoned at Fort Delaware until February 27, 1865, when he was exchanged. He made it back to his unit at Petersburg and was captured again on April 4, 1865 and returned to Fort Delaware, where he was released on May 18, 1865. Andrew Jackson PHIPPS returned to Grundy County after being paroled to find that his house had burned. In 1866, he left Tennessee for Texas where he became a farmer, married and raised a large family. He married Adelia HELMS (1848-1933), dau. of Gabriel G. and Rachel Josephine (HOBBS) HELMS, on October 11, 1867, in Gonzales Co., TX. This union resulted in 11 children (4 daus. and 7 sons). Two of his sons, Oscar (1884-1977) and Claude PHIPPS (1890-1988) married two O'NEILL sisters Mabel (1888-1963), Oscar's wife, and Ethel (1893-1988), Claude's wife. Iona PHIPPS (1878-1962), a dau. of Andrew Jackson PHIPPS, married a brother of the O'NEILL sisters, Gage Washington O'NEILL (1877-1926). Thus, the connection of the O'NEILL and PHIPPS families which still endures today with many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren of Andrew Jackson PHIPPS. Andrew Jackson PHIPPS' pension was approved on September 1, 1917 by the State of Texas. He died in the home of his son Uel PHIPPS (1893-1976) on August 8, 1930, in San Antonio, Texas. His wife, Adelia, died in the home of her son Oscar on June 11, 1933 in San Antonio. Andrew and Adelia are buried in Union Hill Cem., Nixon, TX."~

Jack Dwyer (see previous soldier) gives the following information: "David Wiley PHIPPS was born 1834 in Jacksonville, AL. The family moved to Grundy Co., TN, when the boys were young. David enlisted with his brother, Andrew Jackson PHIPPS, and boyhood friend, William B. PATTIE, on April 29, 1861 at Pelham, TN. All three became members of Comp. A, First Tennessee Inf. Reg't. According to PATTIE'S deposition to David's pension application, David was with the regiment until 1864 when David received a furlough. Once the furlough was over, it appears that David PHIPPS returned to a Confederate unit. according to his pension, he states that his unit "disbanded at close of war in 1865 "we received no discharge, but when war ended we just simply disbanded - we were in Cherokee Co., AL - the cause was the close of the war." David Wiley PHIPPS returned to Grundy Co., TN after the war and married Sallie (maiden name unknown) on June 20, 1865. They relocated to Texas in the late 1860s or early 1870s, eventually settling in the town of Prairie Dell, near Salado, Bell County. He was a farmer in Prairie Dell. His pension was approved on Sept. 1, 1913. He died in Prairie Dell, Bell Co., on the 17th of September 1925. His wife, Sallie, died the 7th of Dec. 1933 in Prairie Dell at the age of 87. At her death the arrangements were handled by J.W. KILLINGSWORTH, a familly friend."
