He was born in Schuylerville, N.Y., March 1, 1844. At the outbreak of the Civil war he enlisted in a New York regiment and served for the duration of the conflict.

Following his discharge he located in the vicinity of Troy where he made his home until 1926. He was thrice married, his last wife, Ida Roberts Phillips, survives.

He also leaves one son, William H. Phillips of North Adams, and one daughter, Miss May Phillips of Troy and one nephew, Melons Gray of North Pownal. A sister, Mrs. Mary Shangler of Schenectady also survives.

The funeral is to be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the North Pownal Congregational church. The body will be placed in the Park Lawn cemetery vault.
