David Allan (married Amelia Terrell) is the son of James Allan and Mary Strickland. James Allan married twice (the second time to Hannah Terrell). This Hannah Terrell was the daughter of Simon and Sarah. So, David’s stepmother is also his wife’s Aunt. There were children from both of James’ marriages. David and his siblings from the first marriage (Mary Strickland) contested James’ will which left most everything to the children of his second marriage to Hannah Terrell. They lost and the will stood.
