John Box III born in 1670 cannot be the father of Benjamin Box in 1776, so who are Benjamin's parents?

There is apparent confusion relative to John Box Jr. whose documentation show his parents , John, the ancient planter and Mary, had only a daughter named Mary, and John Box III was buried in Smithfield VA and Laurens Co. SC..

It seems probable, that Benjamin's parents were John Box, Jr., and Rachel (Unknown) Box. John's estate was probated in 1821 in Laurens County, South Carolina, and Benjamin was named as one of his sons. The profile gives a transcript of John's will (and ancestry.com has a transcript of the probate online.) Benjamin Box-870 shown in John's profile, should be merged into Box-119 referred to in David's question, with the data in the bio pulled over from 870 to 119.

At present, John Box,Jr. and Rachel have two sons, both with approx. same birth and death dates and locations, that perhaps should be merged.

Benjamin Box (Box-119) according tot the documentation I have looked at was the son of John Box (Box-453) who was the son of Robert Box (Box-859).
