Eliza Alice Davison

Eliza Alice Davison was the daughter of Gideon Davison (ca 1784) and Susannah Newcomb (b. 22 Jun 1782). She married Elisha Springer. The 1850 census gives her age as 38, and the 1860 census as 47, which would make her born about 1812. The old Newcomb books indicate her parents were married in 1816. Given the time and place, it is extremely unlikely she was born before their marriage, unless she was adopted. These dates need to be checked.
