Allan Louis Daniells was the third child of Carey Reed and Catherine Daniells. He was born in Wacousta, Michigan, in 1876 and died in Flushing, New York, in 1960. Allan moved to New York to work with his brother Estee at the Ingersoll Watch Company. While in New York, Allan met and married Esther Jones in 1901. In 1902, brother Estee was transferred to Chicago to establish another branch of Ingersoll. When Estee was sent to London in 1905 to establish the European branch of Ingersoll, Allan was sent to Chicago to take Estee’s place. While in Chicago, Esther and Allan had the first of their daughters, Katherine Esther, in 1908. In 1916, another daughter Helen Elizabeth was born in New York. Allan later became involved in Florida citrus groves, like his brother Will Carleton.
