Note: George Davidson married "Creasey" McDearmon, daughter of Dudley McDearmon,
February 9, 1790. She was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia, in the
half of 1768 or the first half of 1769. (She was 81 years old in the 1850
census; so she was about 21 when she married George Davidson; and 70 when
died in 1838.) John Brackett (Sarah's brother) was Surety.
We do not know exactly when George and Lucretia moved their family from
to Tennessee. Three of their children, and perhaps four or more, were
Virginia; but their last child, Susan, was born in Maury County,
1816. The family must have been in Maury County, however, in September,
when two sons, Joshua and Bracket, volunteered for six months service in
of 1812. Bracket, the younger, was 17--nearing his 18th birthday
Bracket was wounded "on the evening of December 23, 1814, being engaged
enemy at or near a place called New Orleans."
The County records of land deeds show that their father, George Davidson,
100 acres May 20, 1816, from Samuel Polk for $200. The land was on Flat
a tributary to Duck Creek, in northeastern Maury County.
Samuel Polk's son, James Knox Polk, became the 11th President of the
States, serving one term (1845-1849). The Polks had lived in Mecklenburg
County, North Carolina, and were neighbors (related by marriage) to the
families of that county and Iredell. Tradition is that the Davidsons of
Carolina and Prince Edward County, Virginia, were closely related; but
how is not known.
George Davidson died in 1838, in Maury County, Tennessee. He must have
buried near his home but there is no stone extant. Lucretia was 69 or 70
George died. Their sons, Joshua and Bracket, had moved to Missouri.

is the document which caused Bracket Davidson-Davison to drop the second

Tennessee. Bracket, born November 17, 1796, in Prince Edward County,
was a grandson of Joshua Senior and Sarah Brackett Davison; and the

BRACKET DAVIDSON-DAVISON AND HIS FAMILY (1796-1863)
Brackett Davidson (as spelled in his grandmother, Sarah's 1808 Will) was
Prince Edward County, Virginia, November 17, 1796. He was the second son
George Davidson and Lucretia McDearmon, both of whom were born in Prince
County. Bracket's parents moved from Virginia to Maury (pronounced Murry)
County, Tennessee, sometime after his grandmother died in 1809. Maury
had been formed in 1807 (The final settlement of Sarah Brackett
in 1825, spelled the family name Davison, and may have been the reason
dropped the second d.)
Bracket, and his older brother Joshua (1793-1850), served in the War of
at the age of 15-16.
Brackett was also one of the largest slave-owners on Polk/Callas Co in
