Alma HICKMAN Davison found!

Hickman -> Davison -> Howell

Why wasn't Alma "Annie" HICKMAN Davison buried with her husband E.D. Davison, Jr. in Bridgewater, NS? In fact, where was she buried? We looked everywhere for information about Alma, but came up empty handed....she was E.D's first wife, and had one child with him (Ellen "Nellie" DAVISON Howell). Alma died at age 29 when Nellie was only 4 years old.

Thanks to Allison CHURCH Bird I was able to find Alma buried with her parents in the Hickman plot in the Dorchester Cemetery, NB. - Her gravestone inscription reads "Alma Hickman wife of Edward Davison d. 2 Dec 1884". Still many un-answered questions but this fills a big gap.
