Emma Davidson

February 16, 1852 - July 24, 1889

The July 27, 1889 issue of the Republican and Press shows that a Mrs. Daniel Davidson died at one o'clock Wednesday afternoon (July 24, 1889) in the Town of York.  She had died after suffering from an illness of two months, her age being 37 years, 5 months and 8 days.  The article indicated that the funeral was held at York Center, Thursday afternoon (July 25, 1889).  It is therefore presumed that she was also buried at York Center Cemetery and in Plot D-2 since records indicate that the plot was owned by D. Davidson.  Daniel Davidson was an early pioneer of York Township.  The 1880 Federal Census for Clark County shows a Daniel Davidson (35) living in York Township with his mother M. Davidson, several brothers and his daughter, Mildred (7).  Mildred Davidson was the second wife of Charles H. Benedict, a son of Adonijah and Clarissa (Clara) Benedict, both of whom were also pioneers of York Township.  An 1880 plat map of York Township shows a M. Davidson owning 40 acres in Section 32, land that was later owned by the Kupkas.  In addition, the 1890 Federal Census lists that Daniel Davidson was a Civil War veteran who served in Company K of the 158th Pennsylvania Infantry.
