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.

The 1965 Voters' List shows Mrs. Ethel Davison at 353 Brunswick Avenue, along with Miss Verne Davision, a dress designer. Frank is not listed, so must have been deceased by this time. The 1963 list shows the same information.

In 1953, Ethel and "Myrna" are listed, but no Frank either. As Verne (Verna) is listed as "Miss", it indicates she did not marry as late as 1965 which suggests there were no descendants. No other adult children are listed with the family in any of the voters' lists.

In the 1940 list, Verne is not listed which suggests that she was not yet of age, so perhaps a birth year of after 1920?

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.
