William Erastus Davidson (Thomas Sanders, Erastus Granger, Robert W., Joseph, John Goolman) married Bertie Lee (Ward). They had three children that are known (1) James Thomas (2)Erastus Granger (3)William Glenn. My 2nd cousin, 2x removed, was one of two known children born to Thomas Sanders and Cora Campbell (Kegley)Davidson.

The name Erastus Granger is used many times in the Davidson family. William’s son shown here is not the same Erastus Granger Davidson, my great grandfather. The repetition can be confusing.
