John Bolling, 1756-1812, son of Benjamin?

My ancestor is John Bolling, born in 1756-1812. He lived around Granville, NC and was husband of Martha Mangum. I know he is in Family Group 3 along with many others including Benjamin Bolling, husband of ? Phelps. Here is my question or issue. Most Ancestry family trees list Benjamin as John's father which surprised me. When I was looking hard to find John's parentage, I contacted the Bolling Family Association. They put me in touch with a researcher who believed my John was John Bolling, Jr. Son of John Kidwell, Sr(?) who was the son of William and Elizabeth Kidwell Bolling. It has been impossible for me to find a link between John, Jr. And Sr. I do know there is. Ajohn, jr. And Sr. In Family Group 3. With so many trees placing Benjamin as the father of John (husband of Martha Mangum), I am having doubts about my John being the son of John Kidwell Bolling. I know there are a lot of Benjamin Bolling experts on this forum. Does anyone know if Benjamin had a son named John born in 1756? Or is my John John, jr., son of John Bolling, Sr. By the way, I have had Family Finder test done and no Native American ancestry showed up. Also, I had my dad tested in FamilyFinder and he did have 4% South Asian of all things. So whatever Bolling we are related to may not have that much Native American DNA.
