{21} John Lineage


The John lineage traces back from Ohio to Pennsylvania in its early settlement period. The immigrant was from Haverford West (Pembroke) and carried the patronymic surname of Phillips. The Phillips pedigree (surname again) goes back to include a knight who participated in the first crusade, which story has survived in the John family. There are a number of illegitimate branches in the later generations of the Philips family, but how the immigrant might be connected has not yet been worked out.
