John Walker Phillips Family
Bible Records

Crittenden Co. Ky.

John Walker Phillips born Feb. 12, 1818 and died Jan. 7, 1900.

He was the son of Thomas Stewart Phillips and Mary Walker.
He married Martha Finch, daughter of Joshua Finch and Lucy Brown. Martha was born April 1, 1820 and died March 12, 1864.

John Walker Phillips and first wife, Martha Finch are buried at McKinley Cemetery in Crittenden Co. Ky. Together they had 9 children.

After Martha's death John married Pricea Kemp, daughter of John Kemp and Mary Shelby.
Pricea was born May 11, 1832, her death and burial unknown. Some researchers say she is buried
in an unmarked grave at Duncan Cemetery in Crittenden County near her Kemp family members, although no records have ever been found to prove such.
To this date, her date of death and place of burial remain a mystery.

Pricea was married twice before marrying John Walker Phillips.
She first married William C. Bradburn and second, Robert Nash who died in 1859. John Walker Phillips and Pricea Kemp were my Great Great Grandparents. Together they had six children,

I descend through their son, Edgar Walker Phillips.
