Written by Alison Stephens in 1988:
" This family first settled in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Later came to NZ and lived in Petone. John DAVIDSON had some land, and he took Jim (James Hunter) out of school at age 15 to help him fell the bush. John broke his leg when a tree fell on it. The family went back to Petone. Jim went to work to keep the family. In the end Jim built a house on his farm at Pongaroa, Wellington, for his folk in their old age, and left."James Hunter DAVIDSON was born in 1874, so he was aged 15 in
