Anthony, Philip & Sarah Rose

Philip Anthony, died 1817
Married to a Sara Rose(??). After his death, Sara Rose married Thomas Stokes: he is listed in the Philip Anthony's will as “husband of the widow of decedent”.

The Muhlenberg County Anthony's begin in Hopkins Co., Kentucky. This is far back as this branch has been able to go. Not much research appears to have been done on this line as nothing is in print but the family welcomes any existing and/or new information.

A will recorded in Will Book 4, page 62, of Hopkins Co., Kentucky, belonged to Philip Anthony, who died there in 1817. The will was administered by Jacob Anthony, presumed to be Philip's brother. Jacob was from Muhlenberg. In the will, the heirs of Philip Anthony are listed and a widow is listed but unnamed. Based on other research, a family was pieced together for Philip. We do not know his place of birth.

It is believed that some of the siblings of Philip were Jacob, who died intestate in 1842 in Muhlenberg, and Mary Jane or “Polly” who was married to Issac Rust. Lillian Anthony, great granddaughter of Philip Anthony, always stated that she was related to the Rusts, the Jenkins and the Cobbs on her dad's side.
