Before the war was over, Philip and his family moved to North Caroline, where further adventures awaited him. The Tories were fierce in the area where he settled, near present day Lincolnton, North Carolina. During a local fight, Philip's throat was cut, but his wife rescued him from the battlefield afterward and he survived to join Francis "The Swamp Fox" Marion's guerrila band. He was so impressed with Marion that he named one of his younger sons Francis Marion.
Philip was to live in North Carolina only about 15 years. The western territories were being made safe from the Indians by Mad Anthony Wayne's Legion, who defeated the Miami, Shawnee and other tribes at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794. Philip decided to claim his acres for fighting in the war. He sold his land around Lincolnton and headed north through Virginia until he reached western Pennsylvania about 1798. Here he rested a bit, and his children, now teenagers, got acquainted with the local people. Henry, his oldest son, settle down and married in Westmoreland County. A daughter, Gloria, married a local boy, Ludwig "Lewis" Otterman; he went with Philip's family to West Virginia.
Lewis and Gloria later moved west to Montgomery County, Indiana, and it is from these roots that I descended.
Philip's wife Margaret died in 1826. In 1834, Philip set out to visit his son, Henry, in Westmoreland County, Pa. He never reached his destination. He contacted cholera while waiting for the steamboat at Point Pleasant, West Virginia and died there.
