In History of Vanango Co PA, it says: "The nearest blacksmith was William Davidson, on Sandy Creek (He settled in 1798). Unknown if this is our William.

The following is from a tape made by L. A. Davidson, Sr. in the late 1980's and added here by R.E.D 5/24/06
:
William Davidson was born 1769. He is buried at Wareham Cemetery in Venengo Co PA. Jane McConnaughey is buried at Amity Cemetery Irwin TS. William and Jane had lived in Huntington Co apparently and arrived in Venango Co and I believe in Irwin TS in 1798. I looked him up in Huntington Co and presumed he lived in an area quite close to Path Valley which is close to Huntington Co. William was one of the early Constables and lost his life in the line of duty. He was shot and killed April 14, 1845? by a man named Robert Scott. Robert Scott was tried for the crime and found innocent by reason of insanity. William was listed as constable of Irwin TS in 1819. He was auditor of Irwin TS among one of 4 auditors of Irwin TS in 1823. He was constable again in 1824. He was a veteran of the war of 1812 and went to the defense of Erie in 1813. He got sick and had to come home and his son Patrick went to take his place. William obtained a 400 acre tract. He was one of the original members of Amity Pres Church and is credited as being the founder of the church. He was a ruling elder for many years. One source of this info is 1890 history of Venango Co. Published by Brown, Runk and Co.

Per tax records listed in 9/20/1982 letter from Calvin Allen to Linus Davidson, William was listed as blacksmith in 1811. He quit the trade in 1812 but was listed again as blacksmith in 1814. (Maybe because of War of 1812, RED) He owned 300 acres, 2 horses and 2 cows in 1815. In this listing, Patrick was shown to have 100 acres, a part of William's. In 1824, William had 300 acres and David Davidson had 50 acres so Patrick was included in William's 350 acres. The following was listed in 1825:
David Davidson, 50 acres, 1 horse, 1 cow, blacksmith
William Davidson, 350 acres, 2 horses, 2 cows.
Patrick Jr., 50 acres, 1 horse, 1 cow
John, 1 cow
Patrick Jr., 200 acres, 1 horse, 2 cows
Archibald, 200 acres, 2 horses, 2 cows. Had arrow pointed to Patrick Jr???

In 1926, William was dead and farm listed with John Davidson, 350 acres
