Phillips Families of Chatham and Moore County, NC

Brick Walls:
1) Who were the parents of Mary Ann Phillips (b. 1845) who married William Judson Maynor?

2) Who were the parents of Chloe, William, Catherine, Berry and Joshua Phillips?  Chloe (b. 1808) married William Maynor - our earliest "known" ancestor.

3) Where did William Phillips get the 50 acres of land in Bear Creek Township (Chatham County, NC) that he was living on in 1850 with his sisters Catherine Phillips and Chloe Mainard & Chloe's 3 children?  The farm sat on the border of Chatham and Moore Counties with Tyson's Creek being the dividing line. 

Chloe Phillips (b. about 1808 d. before 1880) married William Maynor
    Joseph Maynor (b. 1842 d. 1917) married Mary Ann Martindale 
        (I think Mary Ann's parents were Bryan and Carey Martindale)
    William Judson Maynor (b. 1845 d. 1926) married Mary Ann Phillips
        Who are Mary Ann's parents???
    Theany Maynor (b. 1847 d. 1926) married Martin D. Davis
        son of William and Clarkey Hilliard Davis

William Phillips (b. about 1810 d. before March 1862) -- never married

    Berry Phillips (b. about 1847)

Berry Phillips (b. abt. 1825 d. ). Berry hired his nephew, William Judson Maynor, to serve in his place in the Civil War. William served in the 44 Infantry, Co. E "Chatham County Turtle Paws."
(1st) married Mary Ann Shields. I believe Mary Ann is the daughter of Archibald and Miriam Shields of Moore County. Berry and Mary Ann were living next door to them in the 1850 NC Federal Census (Moore County).  By the time of the 1860 Census, Berry and family were living next to and farming with his brother, William Phillips in Chatham County (Bear Creek).
