Philip Ulmer, a wealthy planter in southeast Georgia was born in 1783 probably in western Chatham County, Georgia. During his life, he fathered eleven children by two wives and died a wealthy man 1856, at the age of seventy-three. Since both Philip's father and granr1rather also had the name of Philip Ulmer, this report will refer to the grandfather as Philip 1, the father as Philip II, and the son, the focus of this report, as Philip III.
