Joseph Ferris Dilemma

I have seen Gibert Ferris b. 1823 with the same siblings in both the family trees of Solomon Ferris and Ransford Avery Ferris.  I believe they both had a son named Joseph.  Joseph along with wife Sally Briggs are listed as the parents of Henry Ferris (1819 - 1889) Gilbert Ferris (1823 - 1899) Harriet Emily Ferris Brown (1826 - 1896) Harvey Lockwood Ferris (1827 - 1885) John Henry Ferris (1836 - 1899) in the Solomon Ferris and Ransford Avery Ferris trees.  I have done quite a bit of research on the Ransford Avery line believing it to be the line of my 3rd Great Grandfather.  I have recently come across this alternate Ferris line for Gilbert.  I have not published my tree due to the conflicting information.  I do not want to perpetuate misinformation on the internet and would also like to pursue my family Ferris line knowing it is the correct one. I am looking for the correct information on Joseph Ferris father of Gilbert b. 1823 Any help or clarification would be appreciated.
