David M. Murphy

Autobiography of DAVIDSON, John   who arrived with the first settlers 
in 1770, being then only nineteen years old. Young John Davidson 
built a log house there and re- mained nine years. During the Revolution 
he left Belfast and returned to Windham, which was his home until 
he reached extreme old age. In 1794 his First Division lot in Belfast 
was conveyed to Job Young for 100, and the next year the 
remainder of his share was conveyed to John Cochran for a like sum. 
In 1829, after the death of his wife, Davidson went to live with his son 
William at Lowell, Mass., and there he died 25 Oct. 1835, aged eighty-
five years. His son Henry, who died at Belfast 26 Jan. 1864, was the 
only one of his children who settled in Maine.
