Elizabeth E. White:

Notes:

1920 census - Lizzie's profession is "Minister" - Church of the Nazarene (same as husband.)

The following information is from Lizzie's niece, Helen Romppainen.

Lizzie married Hayes Phillipes, a minister of The Church of the Nazarene. When she became ill with TB they moved to La Lande, New Mexico. There she recovered and took in Edith, a child whose mother was dying of TB. After that she had her own daughter, Ellen. They stayed in the ministry until Uncle John and Grandma White died. Then they came to live with Annie in the big old house in Apple River, Illinois. (However, they do not appear on the 1930 census in the home of John and Annie White.) When Annie died, Lizzie inherited most of the furniture, except for several pieces which went to Helen. Lizzie writes (White, Lizzie - letter to Helen White 31 DEC 1962):
"I had left to me the old family Bible with the family record made out by John and can be depended on. In it he had all the grandchildren's names and ages down to Ellen."

I have Lizzie on the 1930 Census in Taylor County, Texas. Listed on the census is an adopted son, Houston Hilt, whom Nana never mentioned.

(01) Edith Philips:

Notes:


In White, Lizzie - letter to Helen White 31 DEC 1962
