Parents and birthplaceEdit

The biography of Samuel N. Davison in Claybaugh's History of Clinton County... gives William Davison's father as William Davison (?-?) who immigrated from Dublin, Ireland, and his birthplace as Pennsylvania. It does not have anything on his mother. On the other hand, Arthur Henry Davison's book gives William Davison's parents as Joseph Davison (1784-?) and Moicah Reed, and his birthplace as Monmouth County, NJ. Because the 1880 census of Jefferson Twp, Clinton Co. IN reports that William Davison was born in Pennsylvania of parents born in Ireland, I conclude that Claybaugh is correct.DennisDoty 16:03, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
