Your Gertrude is probably the daughter of George W. Philip, b 30 March 1809
in Philmont, and wife Anna M. Miller, b Columbia Co.
Out of curiosity I'd been trying to find my step-grandmother's ancestry. I
knew her name had been Myrtie Philip (she and Grandpa both widowed when
they married, she with 2 girls, he with 2 boys), and family tales said
something about her father having a hosiery mill in Philmont, where they
A very kind subscriber to this list sent me a lot of info, most of it, I
believe from the Village of Philmont section from Captain Franklin Ellis'
History of Columbia County. I thought this section of the History was
online, but a search just now didn't find it. But if you can locate a copy
of that History, I think you'll find what you want.
BTW, Myrtie was the daughter of your Gertrude's eldest brother, Andrew.
Cheers and good luck!
