Matilda May could be my great grandmother, she gave birth to my grandfather David John Phillips when she was 17, My grandfather was put into an orphanage where he stayed for about 16 years.
Any information would be helpful, at the moment i feel as though there is a big part of my family im missing out on. you can contact me through email on [contact link].
My greatgrandmother was Francis Elizabeth "Fannie" Phillips. She was born in 1869 in TN.
They were married in 1885 in Lauderdale Co., AL.
The family legend is that Solon's surname was very difficult to spell or pronounce, so he took his bride's name "Phillips" when they married.
Solon died, after being struck by lightning, in 1902. Fannie died in 1955. I was 10 years old when she died. They are both buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Lauderdale Co., AL
At the time of his death, Solon was owner (mortgaged) of over 1500 acres of farmland.
I have been totally unable to find any information about who the parents of either of them were.
I sure would appreciate it if anyone has any information or could lead me to someone who may have information.

Frederick came from Strasbourg,Alsace,France,where it was the custom to use the second name and not the first.Indeed as Caroline Jane grew up she become known as Jane. I cannot find a marriage for a Jane or an Elizabeth to Fredeick Helrigel or find them in the 1851 census. My gut feeling is that Jane Phillips' name may have been Jane Elizabeth and when her daughter became known as Jane she then used her second name to stop any confusion.
When Frederick Helrigel appears with wife Elizabeth in the 1861 census she is recorded as from Salisbury, Wiltshire c1821. I have found a Jane to fit this date and place, with parents Thomas and Sarah Phillips but this Jane seems to have married a William Adams in Salisbury in 1846 and lived in Hampshire in 1861. I can find no Elizabeth or Jane Elizabeth or Elizabeth Jane Phillips
I would love to know who she was. Can anyone help?
