when I was a boy my Great Aunt Lucy Davidson Smith had a real old family bible. She said it was Granny Lizzys bible.Granny Lizzy was ELIZABETH CHARLTON DAVIDSON.As far as I know she married WILLIAM DAVIDSON 1785 Montgomery County VA. Until recently.I havent done any research in Lord knows how long until a week or two weeks ago.I saw something about a professor from Blacksburg,VA who died.She was a Davidson (maiden name-) and a professor from VA Tech.I got interested in finding out if we were related.So I went back to sites I knew.Had never heard of MyHeritage until today.In the process of looking for the professor I ran across a post by Bill Davidson from the Davidson DNA site.He mentioned there was no proof WILLIAM DAVIDSON who married ELIZABETH CHARLTON were our 5th great grandparents.I know full well I read that Davidson-Charlton bible many times and either I had been reading lies from a BIBLE (dont think so) or the oldest members of my family who I drove to Henry County TN for a family reunion in 73 or 74 were showing us graves of people who were not related to us at all.Well since I am only 62 years and almost three months old I wasnt around in 1785 when William and Elizabeth Charlton Davidson married.If you see this Bill Davidson I am not mad at you I just want to find out for sure or as sure as possible if William and Elizabeth Davidson are my line ? I know the death certificate of THOMAS C DAVIDSON 1911 said CHARLTON and Mary not Sally BARKSDALE were his parents.And the death certificate of Thomas C Davidson my 2nd great grandpa Davidson 1921 said WILLIAM and ElLIZA PARISH DAVIDSON were his parents.Davidson kinfolks if you can unconfuse me it sure would be appreciated.
