Phillips Family Cemetery
The Philips Family Cemetery is located on private property on the north side of Hutcheson Ferry Rd, west of Campbellton Redwine Rd in Chattahoochee Hills, GA.
In a 2008 interview with the property owner Buddy Jarrard, he talked about the family lineage.
Buddy said, “The land was acquired by Levi Phillips through the Coweta County Land Lottery of 1827 and an additional land purchase in 1833. Levi built his first dwelling near Phillips Ferry Road and operated Phillips Ferry across the Chattahoochee River. He later built a one-room structure in 1840, which is now the kitchen of the Ancestral Homplace. Levi died in 1852 and was buried in the small family cemetery close to the first dwelling. His second wife Elizabeth, daughter Delia Phillips, and granddaughter Willie Hines Sewell, lived in the Ancestral Homeplace.”
