Who is John Burton's (father of Jessie McKendrick Burton) father?

Jessie McKendrick Burton 1809 - 1896 has different father's listed on different sites. I'd like to know who knows for sure and any source material. Wikitree says John Wesley Burton, #7144, b May of 1783, is the father; and that Jessie's mother is Nancy Wishard. Wiki shows no father for this John. However, most sites list Josiah Burton as John's father, and my research indicates this Josiah is a junior to a father of the same name.

Geni states that the father of Jessie McKendrick is a John Burton, but this John is born in 1784, and while married to a Nancy Wishard. Geni shows that a Josiah Burton from England is the father of this John Burton.

Some sites name this John as John Wesley Burton - others do not. At least one genealogist calls him John Caleb Burton, but I can find no evidence for that.  

Similarly, some sites state that Josiah Burton, father of John Burton (father of Jessie) is the son of a Joseph Burton - while my research shows he is a junior to Josiah Burton Sr.

Still with me? Any sure answers or source material?

Yes. But I'm sorry - I can't see how you are answering my question, which was : Who is Jessie McKendrick Burton's father? His name might be John - but which John Burton?

Also - who is the father to Josiah Burton? I have that his father is Josiah Burton - other's say Joseph.

I cannot figure out how the photo of Josiah's gravestone answers these questions. Also - I have found numerous times that the info on Find a Grave is incorrect. If you have further details, please share.
