Phillips was the son of Edgar L. Phillips (1827-1908) and Mary Lavinia Sandborn (1835-1914). Edgar's mother was Sarah Evertson, a member of a prominent Dutch American family from New York.
His grandson Samuel Huntington (son of Richard Thomas Huntington and Dorothy Sanborn Phillips) was a professor at Harvard and a well-known political scientist.
