Its really no way to tell if Sank is Ben's blood son. However, Sank could have been Ben's blood son and Merica could have been his step mom. So with out other documents to prove it, it would be hard to tell. But, I see nothing wrong with adding Ben as the father of Sank.
The only way to know for sure if Adam is the father of Ben is to take a look at his death certificate or find Ben listed in slave records. The state of Ga. started doing Death certificates in 1919. So if Ben died before then, you may not find a death certificate on him.
