    6—DANIEL MCALLISTER,2, (Archibald, S) lived in West Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, Pa., and died there 1767, married Elizabeth (McDowell) Holliday, widow of John Holliday, who was killed by the Indians, on his farm. After the death of her first husband, she with her three children, John, William, (d. s. p.), and Samuel Holliday lived on the farm a few years. She then married Daniel McAllister,2 , who took her to his residence, near Carlisle, Pa. President Davison, of Dickinson College, performed the ceremony. They had issue:
    282— MARY McALLISTER, 3. Married William McClure and moved
    to Western Pennsylvania on the Monongahela River.
    283— JANE MoALLISTER, 3. b. 1762.

    *—284—ELIZABETH MoALLISTER, 3. b. 1764.
    284—ELIZABETH MCALLISTER,3, b. 1764, baptized by President Davison, of Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa. Married in 1782, John Mitchell, who, while a resident of Frankfort, Ky., was Colonel of Miiitia and Surveyor of Hampshire County, Ky. They had issue:
    285—DANIEL M. MITCHELL, 4, b. 1784.
    *_286—ORMSBY MoKNIGHT MITCHELL, J, b. July 28, 1809.
    287—A daughter, 4, married to a Presbyterian clergyman in Lebanon Ohio.

    The references to "President Davison" of Dickinson College. are problematic. Robert Davidson was 2nd president of Dickinson which wasn't founded until 1783 and would have been too young to perform either ceremony. Perhaps his father was also a local Presbyterian minister?
