Leander (died 1925) and Edith (died 1924) Davison and four children moved to North Croydon in 1923. Leander grew up in Nova Scotia, and homesteaded in Alberta after 1900. He married Edith in 1910. When they moved to Croydon, they brought farm machinery, horses, and a cow down the river on a scow. The year after their arrival Edith died during childbirth. Newborn Archie was raised by Elizabeth and Tom McCallum. The next summer Leander died after a fall on a pitchfork. The other four children were raised by Edith’s parents, the Watsons, in Croydon.
