My paternal grandmother, Ida Viola Davison Boyd (2/14/1861-5/22/1946) was the daughter of Martha A Davison of Missouri (4/18/1842-9/16/1916)and Esqua Dillard Boyd of Tennessee (4/15/1837-12/1/1898), who were married on November 26, 1857. Martha A Davison was a descendent of Joshua Davi(d)son (8/12/1793-6/3/1850) m.Elizabeth A Glover in 1819. He was from Prince Edward County, VA and she from Newton County,MO. Joshua's parents were George 1762-1838 and Lucretia McDearman Davison 1769-1850 approx.
They were married in Maury Co. Tennessee on 2/9/1790. Lucretia's father was Dudley McDearman of Polk County, MO. Joshua and his brother,Brackett Davi(d)son, served in the same company during the War of 1812 and fought together in the battle of New Orleans under General Jackson (also an ancestor of mine). Brackett Davi(d)son dropped the second "d" for some unknown reason the year of 1830, as shown in the family bible, although his military record showed Davison as his last name.
