    To tell ya the truth, I'm thinking this powell/davidson mixup happened back in Scotland, in which case it would be impossible to sleuth IMHO. Maybe a Powell boy lived next door to a MS X, and they spent time in the barn. Soon after MS X winds up getting quickly married to M Davidson, end of story. No way to know.

    What matters is what POWELL OR DAVIDSON family living on this side of the pond is missing a son. That is the challenge.

    I don't know anything about Scotland other then my son has relatives there on his paternal side.

    When would people have come to the US from Scotland?
    My parents came here in the 50's from Hungary.
    My "mother" soon found herself pregnant & being new here; new to speaking the language; gave her child up.

    Roselvr, this link tells a bit about Scots heading to the US: http://www.siliconglen.com/Scotland/11_24.html It really doesn't say much about the 1900's.

    Most of my ancestors 'came over' in the early 1920's (none from Scotland).

    I only mentioned Scotland because the one Davidson name with the dna match goes back to Scotland, and the male line could have changed back then.
