Amanandah (Holland) Palen, Daughter of Abigail Richmond?

Amanandah Palen's death record clearly named her parents as James Holland and Abigail Richmond.  However, the marriage record between John Palen and Amaranda stated that her last name was MORRIS and her parents were Thomas and Abigail Morris.  On Ichabod Palen's birth record, his mother Amaranda's maiden name was listed as Morris.  However, Ichabod Richmond was Abigail Richmond's father; was Ichabod named after his great-grandfather?

The probate of Ichabod Holland's estate with Ichabod Palen as an involved party was in an Ontario court; Ichabod Palen was named as Ichabod Holland's nephew which would add evidence that his mother was a Holland, not a Morris.

2513.  Abigail Richmond (7), born about 1804; married James Holland.  Resided in Murray, C.W.
