Hi - Just a few updates to my specific line (Kerri Davidson Haack, daughter to CPD IV)
Michael Haack born 1977 is a SR,
Michael Haack born 2010 is a JR.

I've also added another child,
Avery Rose Haack, born 2012.

Going up a bit, Carol Tessman's son, Aaron Tessman, married this year (2014) to Megen Gifford born 1981.

CPD III's wife, Virginia Gunther Davidson passed away this year (2014).

Finally, could you pass along any details you have on Robert Davidson coming over to America?
I'd love to do more research and continue the family tree in Scotland.

Hi Kerri, Thank you for this information. I have updated the web site accordingly.

The only info I had on Robert of Kelso when I did the research is provided in 3 links at and to the right of his name.
If you do uncover any more, please send me a link.

Questions:
Was your mother born in 1946?
When was your aunt JoAnn Mariko born?
When did she and Stephen marry?
When was their son Charles born and did he marry?

Hi Van, Thank you so much for doing this. It's really great.

My mom was born in 1945.

Crap - forgot to ask JoAnn when she was born, but she and Steve married June 18, 1993.

Charlie's Birthday is 11-23-83. Charlie is the son of Steve and his previous wife, Marcia King. I don't have Steve and Marcia's married/divorce dates. I might be able to get them (or I'm sure you'll hear from JoAnn once I give her the website address :) ).

JoAnn also has three children from her previous marriage - Evan, Alex and Alayna Daniel - not sure if you wanted to include them.

Charlie married in May 2012 to Laura Watkins.

When we went to my grandmother's burial, we took a number of pictures of older Davidson gravestones at the cemetery in Clarks Summit. I'm not a skilled gravestone photographer, but I got all the Davidsons buried there from Peter Davidson through to CPD III. If those have any value to you, let me know. I'll clean them up and send them along.

Thanks, Kerri

Thanks, Kerri. It is done.

Now, in addition to JoAnn, it would be good to know Marcia King's dates if possible, and when Laura Watkins was born.

Feel free to forward this to Charlie and let him handle that.

It would be great having the gravestone pics added to the web site. Don't worry about cleaning them up; I prefer working with the originals. To minimize the drag on bandwidth, you could email them one at a time. Or if you have them in a Dropbox folder, you can Share that folder with Van Blakeman (dropbox@blakeman.net). I would then copy them down into my machine and work on those, leaving your originals as is. Van

All sent via Dropbox, and apologize for the quality.

Thanks Kerri, I have copied them into another folder, so you can close the Share if you like.

What are you apologizing for? They are excellent pictures.

Now I need to sit back and think about how I want to incorporate them.
That may take awhile. I'll let you know when it is done.
