James Swallow family of Chester Nova Scotia

I recently found the Administration Papers of the estate of James Swallow of Lower Grant Rd., West Chester, N.S. at the Nova Scotia Archives, MFM #19887. He died without a will and Peter Corkum administered the estate. With the estate papers is a document listing the lawful heirs of James Swallow. The lawful heirs as stated:

Catherine Swallow, wife; Joseph Swallow, son, James Swallow, son, Rebecca, daughter and her husband Thomas Chase, Dorcas, daughter and her husband John Eldridge, Sophia, daughter and her husband George Backman, and Elizabeth Swallow, daughter.

There is no information of a David Swallow attached to this family. If James had died with a will, he could have disinherited David but this is not what happened. David is never mentioned, in any of the papers, as a lawful heir or otherwise, either missing, or his whearabouts unknown.
