ELY-PHILLIPS: Emma Laura m. Neptune Seraphine and/or George F. Phillips

Can anyone straighten this out for me?
The ELY line is in my tree. I have a partial listing from Abraham who marries Charlotte (maiden unk). Both were born in Pennsylvania: Abraham abt 1790 and Charlotte about 1801.

In my list:
Emma, dtr of Thomas and Elizabeth WILAND ELY, was married 3X.

1m. Harry SAGER, a confectioner, married Emma bef 1877; had Grace Elnora in May 1877 in Illinois d 1929 Syracuse, NY; and Maud Evelyn b 6 Aug 1879 Mt. Carroll, Illinois who married Oscar W. BEDORE b 6 Apr 1877 New York. Maud and Oscar had no children. Oscar BEDORE 1918 occupation marine engineer for Erie Railroad, 1917 lived in Cresskill, Bergen, New Jersey.

2m. Neptune Seraphine PHILLIPS bef 1892, s/o Serafine PHILLIPS and Mary (maiden unk), born 1852 in Atlantic Ocean aboard Marie Carolina Clark, registered in NY (ship or birth?) 1880 census butcher, residence bef 1874 lived in Erie and Huron Counties, Ohio, before moving to Mt. Carroll, Carroll, Illinois. Had 1 son: Neptune Seraphine PHILLIPS b 14 Dec 1892 Mt. Carroll, Illinois, d 20 Jun 1970 in Phoenix, Maricopa, Arizona.

3m George F. PHILLIPS s/o Charles and Elizabeth FINNINGER PHILLIPS b Jan 1858 in Illinois. m. 6 Nov 1898 Carroll County, Illinois - any relation to NEPTUNE???; 1900 Fed census for Mt. Carroll Illinois shows George F. PHILLPS as Neptune's father rather than stepfather. Emma and George had twin boys (no names) b 20 Mar 1899 in Mt. Carroll, Carroll, Illinois. Don't appear with the rest of the family in June 1900 UScensus for Mt. Carroll. Shows Emma having 3 children all still alive.

I was confused on the 3 Phillips children and stepfather note when I put these in a tree. 1892 Neptune, and twins 1899 were fathered by whom???
