Bros. Murphy & Wesley Pilkenton Wilkes Co., NC

I've been in touch now with a couple different cousins whose ancestor Wesley was presumably a brother to my ggGrandfather Murphy Pilkenton. But there's a problem with birthdates. Wesley was supposedly born 28 Apr 1818, and Murphy, 13 Dec 1817 (four months apart).

At this point, both brothers are said to be sons of Richard and Elizabeth Rebecca Hadley or Hatley Pilkenton.

Wesley had two wives: Tempie Perkins and Louisa Yates.

Murphy married Elizabeth Yates in 1853.

Does anyone know where this data breaks down?? You'd be solving a big mystery for several Pilkenton cousins. Thanks.
