Could Colbert Hensley be s/o Benjamin not Hickman?

Could Colbert Hensley of Buncombe/Yancy Co, NC be a son of Benjamin Hensley of Burke Co, NC instead of Hickman Hensley of Buncombe/Yancy Co, NC? This Benjamin is thought to be a brother of Hickman.

Amos Hensley, thought to be a son of Benjamin, had a land grant in Burke Co, NC where Colbert Hensley was a chain carrier. Also, Colbert names one of his sons "Amos".

I, also, think Obediah Hensley was a son of Benjamin, as he was on the 1805 Burke Co, NC tax list with Benjamin Hensley.

Let me know if you have proof of the parents of Colbert and/or Obediah.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks, Don Godfrey
