The Elwood & Edna McCune Phillips Family

My Great Grandparents, Elwood & Edna McCune Phillips
ca 1923

Elwood Phillips was the son of William Harrison Phillips & his wife, Sarah Jane Early.  Elwood was the second of 8 sons and the fourth of 10 children born to his parents.  He was born 30 NOV 1887 in Warren County, Ohio.  He married Edna Martha McCune on 23 DEC 1908 in Miamisburg, Ohio.  She was the daughter of John McCune (can we say BRICKWALL here?) and his wife, Rebecca Tanreuther.  

Elwood and Edna were the parents of 8 children, the oldest being my grandfather, Raymond.  Their children were:
Raymond W., Mabel C., Alberta M., Goldie M., Helen L., Mary E., Hazel P.,  and Elwood V. Phillips.  All children lived to maturity with the exception of Mabel who died tragically at he age of 18.

Elwood died 15 FEB 1963 and Edna died 16 DEC 1970. They are buried in Springboro Cemetery, Warren County, Ohio.  Their daughter, Mabel is buried between them.
