You haven't specified who you're talking about, so it's a little hard to give advice. "An orphaned tree lists my great-grandfather as my grandfather's ... What? It sounds as though there may be a connection problem ( person attached in an incorrect relationship). It's very easy to disconnect (see the right side of the edit page). This should be done before you merge anyone. But you do want to make sure he's your grandfather, some of the profiles here don't give very much information.
If I recall correctly, it was my birth father's family.  Three generations have the same first name, different middle names.  I stumbled and got it fixed.  Raymond Arthur [b. abt 1900], Raymond Edward [b. 1924], Raymond Einar [b. 1960's] .  Someone else had entered things incorrectly.  Thankfully, I had had a tree at Ancestry at one time.

You can adopt the profile & merge them yourself if it is the same person :)
