William Davidson married Martha Baker (a daughter of Douglas Baker and Jane Thompson...and that Jane Thompson was a daughter of Reverend John Thomson and the Reverend's presumed wife Margaret Osborne). William Davidson appears to have been a son of the David Davidson (born circa-1715 in James City Co., VA) who married Mary Giles and who died in Buckingham Co., VA around 1798. This Davidson family was part of DNA "Family 10" at www.davidsongenes.org
, and it has been "traced back" to the "first" known David Davidson....who was born in Holland, lived in James City Co., VA (JCCo) by at least 1682 and who died around 1687 in JCCo).
William Davidson and Martha Baker left the Buckingham/Prince Edward Co., VA area and moved to Botetourt Co., VA by 1769. A living male Davidson descendant of their son Reverend Andrew Baker Davidson has just ordered his DNA test from Family Tree DNA, and we should have the results in about 5-8 weeks (and, presumably, it should "match" the other male Davidson donors who are already in DNA "Family 10"). Reverend Andrew Baker Davidson had brothers who were named Baker Davidson (married Elizabeth "Betsy" Womack; died fairly young by 1805), William Davidson, Junior (married a Jinny Davison from another/unrelated family; he was APPARENTLY was the Captain William Davidson who died in Botetourt Co., VA in 1829, but no "conrete proof") and Joseph Davidson (may have never married; died fairly young around 1814). I SUSPECT that the fourth (and oldest) brother of Reverend Andrew Baker Davidson was the David Davidson who was on the 1810 Campbell Co., VA census (per several clues), but I have no proof at this time that he was definitely the son of William Davidson (who left his Will in Botetourt in 1812, but unfortunately, he only identified one of his sons and one of his daughters by name) and Martha Baker (she died in 1829 in Botetourt, per a newspaper obit). I would love to find a living male Davidson who is out of that David Davidson in Campbell Co., VA and who would take the DNA test. Comments/questions?
