Biography

Emma Davison was born circa 1862, the daughter of Albert Davison and Rachel Lockhart of Hantsport, Nova Scotia[1].

The 1881 Census shows her as born circa 1863 with her family, mother born circa 1837 and her father circa 1832, and 7 siblings, living in Hantsport, Nova Scotia[2].

On January 15, 1884, Emma Davison married Leander Shaw, age 27, the son of David and Sarah Shaw of Falmouth, Nova Scotia[1], and had children, including:

  1. Marion Lenore, born 22 Oct 1884, who married John Bramhild Gledhill[3], and who died in 1968 in BC[4]
  2. Marguerite, born 1885[5]
  3. Rachael, born 1890, who married Clarence James Duncan in BC[6]
  4. Edwin David, born July 31, 1892[7], who married Isabella Maud Campbell, and died in British Columbia in 1975[8]

Emma passed away on 8 August 1895 in Hantsport, Hants, Nova Scotia[9]. She was buried at Riverbank Cemetery in Hantsport, where her tombstone reads, "In Memory of Emma A. Davison, wife of Leander Shaw, died Aug 8, 1895, aged 34 years."[9]

Her husband and other immediate family moved to Vancouver, British Columbia after her passing, where they are found beginning on the 1901 Census.
