MARY A. DAVISON

Printed in Lake County, IL Independent, Friday, Sept. 25, 1908.

The following is a clipping from the Antioch Ledger of September 5th concerning Mrs. Mary A. Davison, which will be of interest to old settlers in Lake County. She was the sister of the late George Gridley of this place. Her husband, William Davison, died at his home near Antioch, Calif., in 1885.

Last Monday, Mary A. Davison, a pioneer of this county, and a woman highly esteemed by all who enjoyed the pleasure of her acquaintance, passed away at her home near Antioch, at the ripe old age of 85 years.

Crossing the plains as she did in an early day, at a time when it was a common occurrence for immigrants to be robbed and murdered by the treacherous Indians, and coming to a new country, the deceased was one of the few remaining California pioneers, who left dear friends and braved untold hardships to accompany her husband to their new home.

In early life Mrs. Davison became identified with the Methodist church and remained a faithful Christian woman all her life, beloved by all with whom she came in contact. A short service was observed at the family residence Wednesday, following which the funeral ceremonies were conducted at the Methodist church by the pastor, Rev. C. B. Sylvester, assisted by Rev. Langley, of Byron. The interment was in the Masons' and Odd Fellows' cemetery.

There is left one son and two daughters, being Seth, Ellen and Eva, all residing near Antioch.

Mary A., the daughter of John Gridley and wife was born in Onondago, N.Y., being a descendant of the Seelys, who were members of the Winthrop Colony, which came from England in 1630. Her parents in 1835 removed to Chicago, then far west, a sparsely settled country with neighbors miles distant. On April 4, 1846 she was married to William Davison and resided nearby until 1864 when they crossed the plains with teams. The winters of 1864-5 were spent in Humboldt county, Nevada, following which they came to California. The family came to Antioch in September, 1868 and have resided here ever since that time, being well known to all and especially the older residents.
