happy birthday to me

The interesting thing about this is that since becoming ill, I feel like I am in a time warp. There are many years that are totally lost in my mind. I remember what happened and all the bad things I went through during those years but yet it feels as if they didn’t happen. I shouldn’t be this age! It is like somehow even though my body and mirror tell the truth that indeed I am older, there is something in my brain that still cannot register those “lost” years.

I am not complaining about getting older, we all do it. And I am forever grateful that I have made it to this birthday. There were many days that I didn’t know if I would…

Lyon State Fishing Lake

http://www.naturalkansas.org/lyon.htm

Lyon State Fishing Lake and Wildlife Area is located near Reading, Kansas, and features a 140-acre lake surrounded by a 442-acre wildlife area. The property is situated on the eastern fringe of the scenic Flint Hills of Kansas, and Native tallgrass prairie comprises most of the habitat.

The lake was built in the 1930s by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). “Their work is most visible today in the native limestone guard posts on the dam and the inlaid riprap on the face of the dam and spillway. A native stone shelterhouse was constructed in 1951.”

Lyon State Fishing Lake provides free primitive camping in designated areas. Picnic tables, grills, and pit toilets are provided. Potable water is not available.

MY DAD TOLD STORIES OF HIM USING HIS TEAM OF MULES & WAGON TO HAUL OFF THE GARBAGE– BACK DURING THE WAR — AT THE WPA CAMP-  WHEN THE WPA WAS BUILDING THE LAKE– & BACK THEN– THE “FOOD GARBAGE” HELPED FEED THEIR PIGS & OTHER  LIVESTOCK– PLUS DAD GOT TO KNOW PART OF  THE WORKERS WELL- & THEY WOULD HIDE GOOD FOOD DOWN IN WITH THE GARBAGE THAT HELPED KEEP MY PARENTS & MY OLDER BROTHERS ALIVE!!!

THE PHILLIPS CEMETERY IS LESS THEN A MILE AWAY– WHERE DAD & MOTHER & ALL THE REST OF MY PHILLIPS FAMILY ARE BURIED———

PHILLIPS 1

Oliver PHILLIPS, who was the second settler in Breckenridge County, (now Lyon County), made settlement on Duck Creek early in the year 1855, a few miles south of the Santa Fe Trail. The only wagon trail at that date in this part of Kansas Territory.
Mr. PHILLIPS was a surveyor by trade. He surveyed Emporia in 1857, laying out, as he traveled to the proposed town site, a road which later became a Government State Route to the southwest.
The kindly and generous hospitality of Oliver and his wife, Calista, grew into the making of their home into a State Route Tavern. The house they built in 1856 was a stone structure. In 1874 this house would not hold the many over-night guests traveling through so a wing was added. Today, the PHILLIPS home stands in good repair and maybe found four miles west and four miles north of Reading, Kansas. (Note: good repair at the time this was written in the 1950’s)
Marion PHILLIPS, five year old son of Oliver and Calista PHILLIPS, died Nov. 27, 1856, he was buried near the home. Settlement of this fertile creek land increased, deaths in families began to be numerous causing a demand for a burial place. Mr. PHILLIPS seeing the need, gave for public cemetery use a plot of land on a pretty knoll to the south of the creek, a short distance from his home, and moved his son’s body to this cemetery.
The Cemetery Plot given by Oliver and Calista PHILLIPS and described to contain 84 square rods of land was filed for record by F.R. PAGE, Register of Deeds in Lyon County, on May 5, 1877. On the 4th day of Dec. 1928, Mattie PHILLIPS, widow of Frank PHILLIPS, (youngest son of Oliver and Calista), deeded to the Reading Township a similar sized plot, one half acre, for the same usage. Compensation to be the removal of an old Osage Orange hedge fence and perpetual care to be given the Cemetery, by the Reading Township. These two plots as one, consisted of one acre of land, are located in Section 23, Township 17, Range 12, southwest of the Road U and Road 270 intersection, 3 miles north and 4 miles west or Reading, Kansas.
Phillips Cemetery has been in constant use since its beginning, and is under the maintenance of the Reading Township Board.

In April, 1855, Oliver Phillips settled on One Hundred and Forty-second Creek, and is, without doubt, the second permanent resident of the county. He moved to his present location on Duck Creek, in 1857. Under the Leavenworth Constitution of 1858, Mr. Phillips was elected a representative from the county, and in 1859, was sent as a delegate to the Osawatomie Convention, which organized the Republican party of Kansas. He has been Commissioner of his county, and Assessor repeatedly, and is generally respected.

OLIVER PHILLIPS, farmer, Section 23, Township 17, Range 12, P. O. Emporia, is probably the oldest settler now living in Lyon County. He was born in Luzerne County, Pa., June 21, 1816. With the exception of a residence of twelve years of his early youth in Columbiana County, Ohio, he resided in his native county until he came to Kansas. After attaining his majority he was engaged in carpentering and running saw mill most of the time. In March, 1855, he took a claim of 180 acres located on One Hundred and Forty-second Creek in Waterloo Township, upon which he built a log cabin and made some improvements. His nearest neighbor was Charles H. Withington, ten miles north on One Hundred and Forty-second Creek. Several families settled in abut him, but as their claims afterwards proved to be located upon the Sac and Fox Indian reserve, they were all compelled to leave except A. L. Watkins. Two years later Mr. Phillips sold his claim and pre-empted 160 acres of land situated on Duck Creek in the same township. Upon the organization of Reading Township his farm came within its limits. Here he has ever since resided. He has since bought and sold various parcels of land, and now has in the present home farm 360 acres, all under fence, and about sixty acres under cultivation. He raises many cattle and hogs, feeding all his crops to his own stock. He has made valuable improvements upon his farm, including a fine and commodious stone residence, begun in 1870 and finished in 1874; a large barn and other buildings. From 1857 until a few years ago his place was a public house, and for seven years was a change station on the stage line between Lawrence and Emporia. Mr. Phillips has been a Justice of the Peace eighteen years. Has held the office of County Commissioner of Lyon County one year and County Assessor four years. He has also been Trustee of Reading Township one year and has held other local offices. He is a member of the Christian Church. He married Miss Calista Wilcox, of Springfield, Pa., September 20, 1838, by which marriage he has had nine children, of whom Wm. H., Martha M., Arthur M., Caroline, Minnie B. and Frank are now living. Minnie B. and frank were born in Kansas. All the children are married, and with the exception of Martha M., who resides in Emporia, are all settled within three miles of the home farm.
