How to redirect a paternal grandfather to the CORRECT next step up the tree.

SO I added a chain of strictly-paternal parents/grandparents to my tree until I got to one that was already in WikiTree, and acknowledged that THAT person was the next in the line. But when I go up another generation or two, it points to the WRONG person, it points to another person with the same name, but different dates & wife. Do I create an "unrelated" person then try to link the right person in my tree to THAT 'unrelated' person?? Unrelated is what WikiTree is telling me a "New" person will be if I create such. This is a correct person in my tree: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Holeman-3  But, the father of that person is an Edward Holman b.1684, d.9-11-1743, NOT the person WikiTree leads to.

edit the relationships... disconnecting the incorrect relationships, and connecting the correct relationships

be sure to back up your changes with sources

and for this major a change, be sure to communicate with the profile managers
