Aunt Nancy Phillips

I wanted to share a story with you. During the last Ghost Walk, on October 24th, 2020, we were upstairs in the Staff Lounge.

I was watching as patrons gathered around the table. We asked everyone to set their devices (KII’s, EMF detectors, etc.) on the table. We started asking questions. At one point, the KII on the corner of the table lit up. We started asking if different spirits were with us. At some point, it occurred to me to ask if Nancy was with us. I don’t know where that came from. The KII started lighting up. I started telling the story of a lady that was in Green River back around the turn of the century, that she was a dress maker and mid-wife. The KII’s started lighting up more. I asked again “Are you Aunt Nancy?” The devices really lit up. It did seem that she was talking to us.
I saw that the Sweetwater County Historical Museum had shared an article that mentioned her in regards to women and the vote, since it is voting day. Also, more information was shared by Art King on their feed.
Thank you for the information.
Here is the info they shared:
This is Nancy Phillips (aka Aunt Nancy), she was an ex-slave, seamstress, and midwife in Green River in 1868. She was possibly a servant of S.I Field, and owned a small property in what is now downtown Green River, Wyoming.
Rock Springs Miner no. 8 February 25, 1904 Mrs. Nancy Phillips, more generally known as “Aunty Phillips”, died at her home in Green River last Sunday morning, after a brief illness with pneumonia. Mrs. Phillips was born in Baltimore, Md., in 1834, and came to Wyoming shortly after the civil war. She first lived at South Pass, then moved to Bryan and later moved to Green River, where she has since resided. The funeral services were held on Monday afternoon and were conducted by the Rev. A.C. Warner.
When I worked for the local library some years ago, I ran across her obituary. It had also stated that she came to Green River with her husband and son. She worked out of shop on Railroad Avenue in town, sewing beautiful dresses.
I very much hope it was Aunt Nancy that was talking to us. I have always admired her spunk.
After posting this information on the Ghost Walk Crew’s Facebook page, several Ghost Walk attendees commented.
Mary Mawk to our Ghost Walk Crew member Mary Conley- “This is the woman I said I had never seen before!
She was new to me, I’ve not seen her before. She hung back and observed, following but not too closely. Keeping a watch over the goings-on, if you will. She did not speak to me but acknowledged that I knew she was there. At the end, I said to her “Have a good evening” and she responded in kind.
, on the night of the 17th, when John and I went, I told him and Mary there was a spirit I had never seen before. And I described her to both Mary and John. This is the woman I saw. If she was there the following week, she may be around more often.

 I had her name many times at the Walk the night of the 17th.
Sami Doak and I were talking to someone in the kids section that night

Thank you.
