Note: !Philip moved to Pennsylvania in 1716. !"Philip was one of the first settlers in Chester County, PA and is believed to have possibly come from Wales. He was a yeoman and farmer and owned over 200 acres of land which he had patented around 1718. Phili's wife Elizabeth was of Quaker descent and feeling the Quaker philosophy was a little too stringent for his beliefs, Philip along with a brother in law married to one of Elizabeht's sisters, founded the Keithan Seventh Day Advent Baptist Church in Chester County, PA. The first church meetings were held within Philip's home which now sits in Warwick Township, PA as a historical site. The land owned by Philip was given to his son David upon Philip's death and later David donated some of this land to the church for use as the Keithen Seventh Day Cemetery were David Rogers is buried."
