Hugh O'Neill / O'Neall

Hello friends,

I might be asking a repetetive question, but here goes:  My greatgrandfather was named Lester O'Neal and I was able to trace him back to a hugh O'Neal (Delaware to South Carolina).  After this all I can find is the Hugh O'Neill of Shanes Castle... However, going upon the American/Quaker records the names Hugh, Shane, Brian and John (Shane) are most prevelant for all of the males.  Ergo, my question is, has anyone been able to determine if Hugh O'Neill/O'Neal comes from Shane's castle?  My great grandfather came from an unbroken line of male O'Neills, that ended with the birth of my grandmother.
