Phipps Family
« on: 11:42:52, 10/05/12 »
My grandmother was Lucy Ellen (Nellie) Phipps.  She and her mother Hannah left Leicester in about 1909 and went to New York City.  They traveled under assumed names and left my great grandfather Amos Phipps behind in Leicester.  I think the family lived on High Street in Leicester.  I really know nothing of my ancestry, other than the names of some of my grandmother's siblings and her father's name, Amos.  I know that my grandmother was related to a Pilkington family and had a cousin Nellie in that family.  She took my father, Vincent Murphy, to visit Leicester in about 1911.  They traveled on the Lusitania.  If any of this information sounds familiar, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.
