George Rolston buried New Haven Cemetery in RR Co, TX

Hi, I am hoping to correct a misidentification concerning George Rolston/Raulston who is buried in New Haven Cemetery in Red River Co, TX. Some trees show his wife as Julia Maroney which is incorrect. Julia Maroney was married to a George Raulston just not the one who is buried in Red River County, TX. There is primary source documentation which proves they were two distinct George Raulston/Rolstons to be found on familysearch.com. The will of George Raulston of Blount Co, TN married to Julia Maroney can be seen for free on familysearch.com in Tennessee Probate Court Books 1795-1927; Blount Co, TN; in Inventories, Settlements, 1857-1865, Vol. D; Image 200-201 of 508. His will was proved in the Nov Term of 1859 and it names his son James Jr. as his executor and lists wife July with children (I am listing as written in will as there are no commas)Susan James Jr. Matilda Marha Mary Phillip William Margaret Sarah Wallace and Almiva Philena Prudence. This George Rawlston/Raulston appears on the 1850 U.S. Census for Blount Co, TN (ancestry image p. 32 of 40) as age 55; Julia Raulston age 50; Wm R Raulston age 19(b. 1831); Marg Raulston age 17 (b. 1833); Sarah Raulston age 15(b. 1835); and Wallace Raulston age 13(b. 1837). This George Raulston and wife Julia along with other Raulstons are buried Liberty Christian Church Cemetery; Montvale; Blount Co, TN.
You will notice that the known children of George Rolston of Red River County, TX in no way match the ages of the known children of George Raulston of Blount Co, TN. his children are Mary Ann b. 1816; Wm M. b. 1818; Sarah b. 1824; Cassandra 1825; and Frank Butler b. abt. 1830. Both men have children named William (1818 versus 1831)and Sarah (1824 versus 1835)but are born many years apart. These are two Georges with two separate estates, death dates, and gravesites. I hope I haven't stepped on anybody's toes just wanted to correct the record. Thanks
