PHILLIPS, farmer and stock-grower, was born in Washington County, Penn., July 10, 1833, and is a son of Levi and Sarah (McCracken) Phillips, natives of Pennsylvania, and of Irish origin.  His father was a farmer all his life.  The subject of our sketch, the youngest of eight children, was reared on the farm, where he received a common-school education.  Mr. Phillips has made farming and stock-growing his employment through life, and owns 340 acres of land, which he has procured entirely by his own exertions.  He was united in marriage, in 1871, with Miss Sarah, daughter of Matthias and Sarah (McClain) Roseberry, natives of Greene County.  Mr. and Mrs. Phillips are the parents of four children—Joseph M., Arthur Lee, Maggie R. and Levi N.  Mr. Phillips is a Republican in politics.
