[p. 1010] dealer in real estate, with office at No. 138½ Pittsburg Street, New Castle, has been identified with the interests of this city all his life. He was born at New Castle August 17, 1863, and is a son of Isaac M. and Agnes J. (Morrison) Phillips. After completing the public school course at New Castle, Mr. Phillips entered Butler University at Irvington, Ind., where he remained as a student for three years. Upon his return to New Castle he became associated with W. M. Leslie in a book and wallpaper business, and some years later, after selling out, he became interested in the oil business in partnership with his brother, Senator E. I. Phillips, and others, and operated in Butler and Allegheny Counties. Owning a large amount of property, he naturally became interested in the real estate business. Together with his brother, Senator Phillips, he owns the Phillips Block on Mill Street and has other good investments. In 1900 he was largely instrumental in forming the Shenango China Company and for two years was treasurer and general manager of the same. Mr. Phillips married Miss Emily Arms Wilder, who is a daughter of Joseph P. Wilder, of Youngstown, Ohio, and they have one child, Jane Agnes. The beautiful family home is situated at No. 60 West Grant Avenue, New Castle.
