I have been helping with someone's family tree and found a Presley and I had helped someone else a few months ago to connect to the Presley line but i cannot figure out who George A. Presley's parents are on Family Search is a mess .. I narrowed it down to maybe a John Presley .. just not sure which one ..      

John Presley

1794–1880 • K6HW-FZ1

Rebecca Green

1803–1885 • KHNX-PVX

or 

Andrew Presley

1754–1855 • LY35-FB8

Elizabeth C Yandle

1756–1865 • LY35-GDB

but the first John i listed the father of him is 

Andreas David "Andrew" Pressler Sr

1732–1790 • LRSJ-WZF

Lydia Elizabeth Preslar

1756–1865 • L4KJ-ZVW

but there is 2 wives listed and each have a son named John and also its during the same time period so one of them has to be wrong .. and i looked on Ancestry and at records and i am not sure which is right ..  does anyone know or would help me figure it out ???

Without father's will or other document linking both of them, it is not certain. However, it seems very possible that John is his father: (also, it looks like Andrew is John's father)
