John's mother is Lucy McGregor McNeal Walling/Walden. Her husband Michael Walling left a will in Jackson County Georgia that specifically names John and Lucy. It was witnessed by my ancestor, Henry McNeal, who appears to be John's brother and Lucy's son. Lucy had a mother named Frances (Fanny) who had remarried to a Villitoe. (Lots of ways to spell that one.) There is a will in Chaleston SC in late 1790s for James McGrigger. He mentions his mother and his sisters Lucy, Sally and Fanny. I find Daniel McNeal witnessing a deed of gift for Fanny Villetoe in Franklin Co., GA. This may be John and Henry's father.
