In trying to track my Phipps heritage back to the Scotch-Irish settlement in the U.S.A I found out that.?

My Greatx2 grandfather was Silas B Phipps-June 1842 Who birthed my great grandfather who was one of 12 to 15 children he was Charley W Phipps-Feb. 1887 who birthed my grandfather Morris C Phipps. Can you help me go back from Silas B Phipps.? Thanks again to all that takes there time to help me with this info. My children are really getting a new found respect for American History now that they can trace there family...

    "In Reply to: Isaac Phipps, VA"--several notes:

    1. George Washington (1732-1799)--future 1st President--

    Survey, April 23, 1751, of 247 1/2 acres in Frederick County, Virginia, for ISAIAH Phipps.( Isaac's father?)

    Through his friendship with Thomas, Lord Fairfax, and other Fairfax family members resident in Virginia, seventeen-year-old George Washington secured a commission as surveyor of the newly created Northern Neck county of Culpeper in 1749. With Lord Fairfax's permission, Washington was soon surveying lands in the Northern Neck Proprietary west of the Blue Ridge.
