Hugh Gordon Phillips

He died en route.  The Phillips family started across the plains with the Seth M. Blair/Edward Stevenson Company but family members soon died from cholera so they stopped at the Big Nemaha River "to clean up the wagon and selves."  They then continued on to Utah with the Richard Ballantyne Company.
