Bill "Dalton" Phillips' Falsified Genealogy
Here is the genealogy provided by Billy Murl Phillips (aka William "Bill" Dalton Phillips) to researchers, "proving" he is a descendant of James Lewis Dalton and Adeline Lee Younger. The images have not been transcribed because (a) they contain false information and (b) it is important the false content is not picked up by search engines and provide further dissemination of it.
Be careful as this is from the person committing the distortions and parts of it are purposely falsified. It is presented here, not as an accurate genealogy, but to inform you of the false information which has been widely disseminated.
Tom and Bea Phillips almost certainly married in Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas, though Nancy Samuelson's book and Bill's NOLA article say Tom and Elizabeth Phillips married in Brownsville, which is in far south Texas. In another place Bill says Bea and Tom married in Brownwood. The problem with both those places is Tom Phillips was in Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas for the 1860 and 1870 censuses and the 1881, 1882, 1883 and 1885 tax rolls and all their children were born there, up until the birth of the twins in 1890. It seems highly improbable Tom Phillips was ever anywhere other than Kerr County, Texas until he moved to Tussy, Indian Territory sometime after 1890.

Recently, Bill Dalton Phillips of Oklahoma, a descendent of Bea Elizabeth (Leila) Dalton Phillips and one of the few living descendents of the Gang, contacted your editor and sent data and pictures related to his ancestors. Bill asked that they be put on the web to share with everyone who has an interest in his family and to correct erroneous information that has been posted on the web.
Bill states that he has a "room full" of Dalton memorabilia and if you would like to be in contact with him, write to: Millicenty@aol.com. Bill has contributed to several publications, including the book, "The Outlaw Gang" by Nancy Samuelson.
WARNING: This is part of Billy Murl Phillips' (alias Bill Dalton Phillips) falsified genealogy. Be careful and do your own research!
Emmett Dalton in his 1918 book listed the names of his siblings, including "Lelia". Bill has appended that name to his grandmother's name – but Bea never used that name and Lelia was born later than Bea (between Littleton and Franklin) and died in infancy and cannot be Bea Elizabeth Phillips.
