Wiley Clark Tinney/Wiley Jonias Tinney

Looking for descendents of either of the two Wiley Tinney's. One born b. Feb. 9, 1842 Lee's Landing, Macon Co., Ga. to John Tinney of Meriwether Co., Ga. d. Dec. 27, 1912 Bibb Co., Al. Served in the 41st Al. Inft. Co."B". Married second wife, Mary Elizabeth Dukes abt. 1899/1900 Bibb Co., Al. . First wife is unknown until I receive his pension records.
And the other Wiley Tinney b. Sept. 18, 1840 Meriweather Co., Ga., to Joseph Thomas Tinney of Meriwether Co., Ga..mother unknown, served in the 1st Ga. Reg. Co. "B". m. Mary E. Davis 1859 Meriwether Co., Ga. It is not determined where this Wiley died as yet but we know it was Alabama. . The Alabama State Archivist says this Wiley died in Pickens Co., Al. as his birth year matches. All she could tell me was there is a death cert. on file for both Wiley's. One in Bibb. & one in Pickens Co., Al. The unusual part is that both Wiley's were in Bibb Co., 1900, one is on the census and one is on the tax list and both show different birth dates. They were indeed cousins.
One of the two Wiley's had four daughters. In 1880 Harris Co., Ga. we see a Wiley Tinney married to Caroline ? with daughters Ida b. abt 1860, Mary b. abt. 1861, Susan b. abt 1871 & Francis b. abt. 1874. But it is unclear as to which Wiley this is. The birth year matches the one b. 1840 but both Wiley's were close in age so this doesn't prove which Wiley this is. Caroline may not be the mother of Ida & Mary. There is a 10 year span between Mary & Susan. Mary Davis may be the mother of Ida & Mary while Caroline ? is the mother of Susan & Francis. This is just how it looks to me. I have no proof of this.
Any help would be appreciated in detemining which Wiley is which. Looking forward to hearing from anyone...
Thank you,
