Peter Brosius and Maria Phillips of Lower Mahanoy

Peter Brosius, son of Nicholas Brosius (1757-1832) and his wife Anna Catharine Mayer/Moyer (1758-1836), was b. 1795 in the part of Northumberland County PA that became Lower Mahanoy.
About 1818 Peter married Maria Phillips, dau of George Phillips and his wife, Sara Fuchs, of Lower Mahanoy. The baptism of their first child, Washington Brosius, appears in the records of the Zion's Stone Valley Church in 1820.
About 1827, this Brosius family removed to Erie County, NY where they lived in the towns of Amherst and Clarence. Their migration continued in the early to mid-1850's when they moved with other family members to Oakland Co, MI. Peter Brosius died in Oakland County in 1871 and Maria in neighboring Genesee County in 1886. Both are buried in Ortonville Cem. in Oakland Co, MI.
I have the early Brosius family history, but would like to learn more about the Mayer/Moyer and Phillips lines.
Who were the parents of Anna Catharina Mayer/Moyer, and what were their origins?
Who were the parents of George Phillips and his wife Sara Fuchs? I have seen the information in Bell and Floyd, but I understand there are some questions about its accuracy.
Any clues are appreciated.
