looking for Phillips from South Australia
I don't have much information at the moment but would really appreciate any that others may have.
Born 1838 in Argylshire, Scotland on a sheep farm.
Died 25 September 1907 at Gilberton.
McTaggart arrived in South Australia in 1852 aboard the Bengal Merchant (ship) and settled in the South East as a pastoralist and sheep farmer. In 1856-1857 he formed stations at Wooltana 200 miles north east of Port Augusta
McTaggart married Mary McCallum, a niece of Archibald Johnson and they had 10 children. He retired to live at Dashwoods Gully and at Gilberton until his death
Leofric Boothby, who married Mary Amelia Phillips. Mary Amelia Phillips was the daughter of Thomas Dougal Phillips and Katherine McTaggart. I think that Thomas Phillips managed Wirrealpa Station from1859-1900. Mary Amelia Phillips married Leofric Boothby in 1902, and she had John Boothby in Hawker in 1906
