Davidson Family History and Ancestry

Home Page
Drink Goji - Be Happy!


This site is dedicated to being a resource for Davidson/Davison/Davisson/etc. family history researchers worldwide. Although much of the focus is on families living in America, we will over time be providing data on all Davidson families who can trace their ancestry back to families who lived - or are living - in the United Kingdom.

This site will always be in development and new material will be added periodically. As of November 2005, this site is being redesigned so some links may not be working. Please bear with me as these will be appearing shortly, as time permits.

The two main resources of this site are the various Davidson family databases and the Davidson Surname DNA Research Study. Click on the menu links above to access that material. Of course, my personal Davidson family database is also accessible.

My Davidson family were Scottish and arrived in Pennsylvania in the early 1700s from Northern Ireland. Settling first in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, they were early settlers in the Shenandoah mountains in a community known as Beverly Manor in Augusta County, Virginia, worshipping at the Tinkling Springs Church. About 1749 the families migrated to North Carolina and settled in the region near what is now Statesville in Iredell County. From there the family moved over the course of the next 150 years to almost every state.

On the pages inside, we provide significant documentation to this famous family that includes General William Lee Davidson. However, our story is not complete. If you can add to the story or correct our mistakes or just have questions or comments about what you see, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
