Mary Alice Woolever was born in Brownville, Jefferson, New York, near Perch River. The daughter of Henry Charles Woolever and Mary Elwood Miller. In her obituary it states that her date of birth is July 19, 1845, but I found a birth record that goes along with the census records that state 1849 as her year of birth. It also states that her early life was spent in Perch River,Jefferson, New York where she obtained her education.
She met and married William B. Davison on October 16, 1867. The ceremony was solemnized at Brownville. They moved to Brownville, Jefferson, New York where they appeared on the 1870 census. By then they had two twin boys age 2, William James and Edward (Henry) Linton.
From there the family separated, and in her obituary it states that the twin sons went to Bridgeport, Connecticut with their mother, although I haven't been able to locate anyone on the 1880 census. By the late 1880's they are listed in Peoria living with their father. There must have been a divorce, because both Alice and Willie remarry, although Alice did not remarry until after WB died.
I am still trying to research Alice's life, I know she married Henry Spencer in 1920 and they show up on the 1920 census in Watertown, Jefferson New York. Mary Alice died in 1929,and is buried in Watertown, New York.
