Re: Phillips Families in the US #germany #usa


A great-great grandmother, Leah Phillips, was born in England in about 1826, and immigrated to the US in about 1848. She married a Moses Isaacs, who was from Poland. The lived in New York City and had eight daughters. At least four of the daughters died of reproductive cancers.
We have not been able to find any trace of Leah in England, though she should be in the 1840 census. Some documents mention "Fischel," which may have been the original last name or might have been Leah's father's given name.
This Leah Phillips is clearly not a descendant of Jonas Phillips but I am interested in following this discussion to learn of other Phillips she might have been related to.
