Mary Catherine JARVIS, daughter of Joel Alexander JARVIS and Eliza B. PARKINSON was born in Perry County, Ohio in 1851.
Mr. Samuel PHILLIPS was united in marriage to Mary Catherine JARVIS January 22, 1866. To this union was born nine
children; five sons, four daughters, one son and one daughter has passed on before and seven still survive, which are
all present in these sad hours with the grief stricken father.
Mrs. PHILLIPS has been an active christian worker since her girlhood days and when Grandma PHILLIPS as she was commonly
called, is spoken of it sends thrills of christian enjoyment through the heart, as her only aim was to serve the master
and scatter deeds of kindness, which is so comforting to the grief stricken husband and children.
