 Here is the information about the Philips family. In the 1920's, L. B.  Philips and wife Ida, bought, reserved, what ever was appropriate at the time, 12 lots for his family in the White Oak Cemetery, established in 1905  in Porter, Texas, off old Humble road, hwy. 59. He and his wife, placed a  family name stone, which is blue and white with "PHILIPS" in the middle.  They also placed a wrought iron step over fence- type rail around their lots. A cedar tree was also planted. Two large cement pots were on either side of the entry way name stone. Sometime in the 70's, the rail was  removed, the two pots, removed, and the family has had to pay to bury anyone  in the lots. We were told that the caretaker needed the lots cleared to mow  the grass. Since, the footstones are sunk in the ground and we have had to  dig them up and several vases, connected to the monuments were broken. Not a  very good "caretaker" associated, I would think. The spelling of the  name
Philips was changed in the late 1930's, when the family relocated to West  Columbia, TX, due to L. B.'s  job transfer with Humble Oil Co. (Texas  Pipeline Co.)
