John Davidson

Birth: Aug. 30, 1813
Death: Apr. 7, 1846

Jacob's Holtzclaw headstone is in the center of the second photo (with the blue cup) and Anna Holtsclaw's is to the left of his, and John Holtzclaw is to the right. Nancy Davidson is next to the tree. Pictured are Kyle Brown (red shirt) and Joe Rothrock (white shirt), members of Boy Scout Troop 396, Brownsburg. They are helping to clean up this cemetery for an Eagle project. At the moment they are removing the remains of a long dead tree that fell decades ago, breaking some headstones and knocking over others. Kyle is about to find the headstone for John Davidson that hasn't seen the light of day for a long time. Further to the right, where Joe is looking, should be another headstone, because there is a footstone still in place there. On another day, the headstone for John's son, John (Jr.), was found through probing the ground.

John Davidson was a son of Silas & Phebe (Lewis) Davidson.

To my Great Grandfather. I only know you by paper records. Until did not know where you were buried or if you were. I love you for my father, who passed in 1960 and for my sisters.
