George Phillips - 1820 settlers - Morgan's Party

Classification: Query
Surnames: Phillips, Gray
I am a direct descendant of George Phillips who arrived with the 1820 Settlers with Morgan's Party on the Ocean.
His wife was Ann Ladson.
George had 2 sons who were born in England, George and James.

I am descended from James. His son, William Benjamin Phillips, was my grandfathers grandfather.

James Phillips moved to the Tarkastad area from Bathurst, and is buried in Tarkastad.

Out of interest I was wondering about George Phillips, his older brother. I know from the parish register for his baptism that George was born 21 April 1816. And I have found a gravestone in the Komga Anglican cemetery for a George Phillips that died in 1883. His age is an exact match, so I'm pretty certain that must be him.

I've found mention that there was a George Phillips who married Charlotte Gray, but there seems to be conflicting details of whether the George that Charlotte married was George Phillips from Morgan's party, or George Phillips from Crause's party (son of Thomas Phillips).

Is there anyone that has researched that Phillips family and knows the answer?

Thanks
