Much of the pre-World War 1 material on the Davidson line in this chart is taken from The Davidsons of New England , compiled in 1983 by The Davidsons of New England Association,  by Frank Davidson, Bruce Knox, Pam Harvey, Ralph Berman, and Ross Davidson.  The chapters in that book which relate particularly to our line of ancestors are reproduced here , with the permission of the Association.
