      Having been born into slavery, William and Sally Phillips were emancipated at the end of the Civil War. They and each of their seven surviving children were given 40 acres of land and a mule. William and Sally are buried on the land they received. The Phillips prospered and expanded their land holdings. Numerous descendents lived in the Little Richmond Community and many are buried at Little Richmond Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. One photo shows great-granddaughter Evelyn Gentry Howie at their graves.
