Mary Catherine Phillips* (1852-1938) was educated in Chapel Hill and Charlotte NC. She is the principal subject of Chapter 11 in A Rare Pattern by Lucy Phillips Russell, Published by the UNC Press, Chapel Hill NC, 1957. Lucy (Phillips) Russell was her younger sister. This chapter describes her wedding in 1873 to John Samuel Verner* (1849-1912). There are also several references to her in Old Days in Chapel Hill by Hope Summerell Chamberlain, Published by the UNC Press, Chapel Hill NC, 1926. This book however, on pages 231-231, contains a letter which appears to misidentify her children with her brothers! Mary Catherine was the third child (after two who died in infancy) of Prof. Charles Phillips*(1822-1889) and Laura Caroline Battle* (1824-1919).
