Andrew Franklin from NC

Hi. I am searching for the lineage of Andrew Franklin. This is what I have:
Andrew Franklin of NC married Mary Jane Winter. My GGrandfather is there son James Isaiah Franklin born 10/12/1859 in Crandell, Tenn or NC. James married a first wife and had these children:
W.H. Franklin b. 2/3/1887
Mary E. Franklin b. 9/30/1889
Jocy (?spelling)Franklin b. 12/16/1891
George E. Franklin b. 1/17/1896
According to the Franklin Bible. There is no listing of the mothers' name. His second wife was listed and is my GGrandmother Ellen Matilda Moxley(Hutchinson) of Wilkes, NC. There children were:
James Clay Franklin b. 2/7/1903
Arthur Leonard Franklin b. 7/19/1905 in Blount City, TN. --This is my Grandfather. According to George Franklin and the family bible they coverted to Mormon and moved to Salt Lake City, UT in 1910.
I have found so many Andrew Franklin's married to a Mary Jane Winter from NE Tenn. or NW NC to boggle the brain. I have a hard time believing that the information in the Franklin Bible could be 5 years wrong on the birthday of James. I can only go by what has been transcribed out of the bible by my mom and aunt. I did not grow up knowing anything about the Franklins. My grandmother divorced Arthur and that was the end of that. So please any help clearing up and findind the correct information would be great. Thanks.
