Looking for info on / descendants of Frank Egerton Davison, b 7 Mar 1872 Toronto, s/o John Thomas Davison & Mary Severn. Frank married 22 Jul 1911 Ethel E McKinnon; believe had a daughter Verna. Frank was into Canadian resource exploration & mining, and exec of Patricia Airways. Lived at 493 Euclid Ave, Toronto, then 353 Brunswick Ave. Wife Ethel's mother was Estella Elizabeth Weaver, b.1859 St Catharines. Would appreciate any info.

Hi,

I found this in the Toronto Star. Appeared on
November 17, 1993 page A20. Says she is buried at Mount Pleasant, possible her parents are there as well.

Thank you Nancy, very kind of you to dig this up. It really helps, as the only "evidence" I ever had of Verna was a vague recollection by my mother. Verna's father Frank, I'm finding out, was a mine owner / mining promoter but is remembered today mainly by specialized philatelists. Apparently his Patricia Airways used to carry mail among northern outposts. They issued semi-postal stamps and some have his initials F.E.D. overprinted on them. Thanks again, Bob
