    • William F. Donnelly, in "The Wests of Duck Creek," p. 404, gives Elizabeth Davison's birthdate as Oct 8 1770, as does researcher Jeff Whittaker. Also, researcher Linn Baiker has birthdate as Oct 8 1768, citing several sources including notes of previous researchers in her immediate family. But headstone inscription states that she died on July 26 1839 at age 69y 9m 18d, which would put her birthdate at Oct 8 1769.
