John K. Phillips and Millison Tyler Phillips
This photo of a couple from Gorham,
MILLISON TYLER (daughter of Alsop V. Tyler and Rhoda Ann Burges) and
JOHN K. PHILLIPS (son of James G. Phillips and Mary Stults of Gorham),
was taken about 1857. John is a grandson of Isaac Phillips and
Anna Gamble of Gorham.
I believe this was their wedding photo; they were married 19 February
1857. John Phillips was killed at Gettysburg on 3 July 1863. He
buried there. Millison remarried to George Lester. She died 24
1881, probably in Phelps since she was living there with her daughter,
Margaret, and son- in-law, Warren Burlingame, in 1880. She is
in the Gorham cemetery.
