St. Paul's Cemetery, Ballineen, Cork, Ireland
Phillips Grave

    At Ballineen, Co. Cork, Ireland, in St.Paul's Graveyard (see map) a gravestone for William Hayes Phillips is found.  On the front of the stone a raised plaque about 18 inches square had been carved.  On this was inscribed "Erected to the Memory of William Hayes Philips who died (June) 1886 and his wife (Ann) who died August 1880".

According to my Irish researcher, Anthony Kent, there is a stump of a marker beside the gravestone and this could be another Phillips marker.
