The full text of the book Phillips Genealogies (1885). This is probably a key source from which Lovecraft constructed his family tree as he knew it: I read in the footnotes for the recent H.P. Lovecraft in the Merrimack Valley that this point has been suggested by Kenneth W. Faig Jr. Or I wonder if perhaps the book may have been used by Lovecraft’s maternal grandmother Robie (‘Rhoby’), who died in 1896 and who had apparently done much work on the family tree?
