shelbykaye on “Neill McNeill b. 1820″

I have 1870 census, Barbeque, Harnett showing Neill H. McNeill b. 1820 works turpentine
living with daughters (presumably) Grizzie A. age 16, Jane E. 14, and Lucy D. 7
I have Grizzie’s (Griselda) death certificate saying her mother was Nancy Stone.
I cannot find this family of McNeills (with Nancy) in any prior census.
I have found Nancy Stone married in 1857 to Neill H. McNeill in Moore Co. 1850 Census but this Neill H. McNeill seems to have been born in Scotland in 1785.
Grizzie is my great-grandmother and I am stymied. Can anyone help?
