¹1809 or 1805? Some descendants of William P. Quarles claim that he arrived at the area
he named White Plains in 1805 rather than 1809. My father, Roy C. Phillips, believed 1805
would make more sense because: William P. was murdered in April of 1813. If he came in
1809, he would have been at White Plains less than 4 years. This seems too short a time
period in which to accomplish all the things he did in the area.
No document has been found yet to indicate that he was indeed there in 1805,
but it is clear he and his entourage were there in 1809.
So the question remains open. Hopefully some documentation will eventually be found to
clear the issue. (Statement by Harrell Phillips) (Additional pertinent information on the page
