Founding of Lima, Livingston County, New York
Capt. Paul Davison, of Sullivanís Army, and his brother in law, Jonathan Gould, explored and then settled in Indian Territory in 1788, in what is now known as Lima, New York. They built a log cabin, the first white manís home in the Genesee Valley. In the spring of 1789, the two men travelled back to the Susquehanna area in Connecticut and brought back the Davison family, consisting of his wife, Sally Gould Davison, their two children, his mother in law, Abigail Kingsbury (Gould) Abbott and Asabel Burchard.
They all settled in the cabin that was built. In 1790, Abigail Kingsbury (Gould) Abbot died, becoming the first death of the newly settled Genesee Valley. In 1791, Lovinia was born to her parents, Paul and Sally Davison, becoming the first child born in the new territory.
These brave men, women and children are recognized as true pioneers and the first settlers of what is now known as Lima, New York.
For note, in some old records and history books, Lovinia is spelled Lovina and also Lovisa. Her gravestone uses the name Lovinia.
