Philip was born in Kansas City on April 26, 1872. He and his wife Jennie came to the South Peace in 1917 and settled on 36-73-10-W6. The couple also had a son Thomas, who was five months old when Philip enlisted in December of 1915. In April of 1918, Philip was discharged, having been found medically unfit (the primary reason was myalgia in his legs). The Cunninghams settled in Valhalla in 1919. They were still living in Hythe at the time of Philip’s death on March 2, 1932.
