Mayor Davison from Nova Scotia

Davidson -> Davison -> Howell

A recent trip to Nova Scotia solved many mysteries (and created about as many new ones!) about the Davison's and the Davison genealogy. A fascinating family including Edward Doran Davison (Sr.) 1819-1894 lumber scion of Bridgewater, and his son Edward Doran Davison, Jr. 1845 - 1902 who continued the lumber business with his brothers, and who was the second Mayor of Bridgewater, NS; following his brother Frank D. Davison who was the first Mayor of Bridgewater!
