Am searching for Davidson families that came from Scotland
to Nova Scotia. The time frame would be 1820-1860.
Do not know husband's given name but wife was Elizabeth
Sims Davidson. Would love to exchange information on this
family.
Thanks
Fern Poe Davidson

My ggrandfather was George W Davidson born in Canada in about 1822. We have hear from family tales that he was the first Davidson of our family to be born in North American and his family came from Scotland. Do you have any information ?

My Great Great grandmother was Helen Law Davidson. She was born in Morayshire Scotland. She married a David H Johnson in Corry,Pa. Her sister was Christian Law Davidson,
who married a Jacob Smuck and they lived in Glanford,Ontario.
Family legend has it that they came through Nova Scotia.
Their father was Alexander Davidson and their mother was Elizabeth Wilson.
Helen was born in 1848 and died in 1916. I can send you a pedigree if you want,send me your e-mail.

My great great grandfather Duncan Davidson came to Nova Scotia within that time period. He was born in Scotland, around 1830-35. He married Elizabeth Fisher - I believe in Nova Scotia then went on to Toronto. He died as a young man, left his widow with two children. I do not5 know if he came with his family or alone to his new country. I have hit a brick wall in the 1850's.
