The Rushville Times, August 18, 1999
Sunday, Aug. 15 proved to be a perfect day for the annual Phillips' family gathering. The reunion of the descendants of Samuel Webster and Catharine Montooth Phillips was held at the Larry J. and Sherill Phillips residence east of Rushville.
Jeremy Norton gave the blessing for the potluck meal.
After the meal, Dann M. Norton gave a report on the family history. President Larry Phillips and secretary/treasurer Connie Dodd held a business meeting. Bob Phillips accepted the president position and Shirley Phillips accepted the secretary/treasurer position.
The afternoon was spent visiting and looking at pictures from previous reunions. Several people took the long way home, traveling the Scab Hollow Road to see old homeplaces and childhood haunts.
Everyone enjoyed the rural setting, and the reunion will be held next year at the same location, the third Sunday in August, 2000.
