Mary Ann, daughter of Ceva Dodge and 1st wife Mary Ann Tasker

Married George Davey, brother of William, on May 9, 1886.

Granddaughter, Ernestine Davey Smelser, tells a story of her parents and siblings traveling to see Grandma Maryann in the early 1900's. Taking with them a chair made of Elk horns and bufflo skin (from an Indian Chief that traded at Edward's Mercantile store). Grandma Maryann was pleased and they had a wonderful visit. Soon after Edward died, the family again traveled to Ill. to see Grandma Maryann, but the chair was gone. Ernestine asked where the chair was? Grandma looked at Ernestine and told her, it is up in the attic, been there since the day they left the last time. It was the uglist, smellist thing she had ever seen, but didn't want to hurt Ed's feeling.
