I have a connection to the William Hanson Neal family thru his wife Elizabeth Jane Blair. I've done some research on this family because of that. They did have a store called "Neal's Store" that became a name of the community. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more info.
Several Neal families that were related came from Union Co., SC to Chickasaw Co., MS and settled. I also have a county history book that has some info on some that I can't connect.
