  • Notes 
    • See "I did enjoy" - p.13-24 "Macks and the Medway for excellent background.

      The Canadiaon Biographical dictionary in reference to E. D. Davison notes:

      "In 1839 he married Desiah Mack, daughter of Elisha Mack, of Mill Village, whose grand-father, Samuel Mack came to Nova Scotia from Connecticut about 1764, and was a prominent man in his day."

      Charles Donald Davison notes:

      "Samuel Mack moved from Connecticut to Port Medway, N.S. in 1764.  He bought land and mill from Smith & Mosley the first resident settlers of Mill Village."

      From shouthshorenow.ca notes:

      "Samuel Mack is of interest not only as the archetypal "Connecticut Yankee" entrepreneur, the founder of what was to become the Edward Doran Davison lumber empire, which relocated to Bridgewater after the devastating fire of 1865, but as a slave-holder. (He advertised for the return of run-away slave Chance.) Mack was the great uncle of Joseph Smith Jr., the Mormon Prophet (Samuel's brother Solomon was Smith's maternal grandfather) and foster-parent to William Burke, credited with being the first permanent settler in North Queens. Samuel Mack was responsible for establishing the Macks as the dominant family at Port Medway Mills, later Mills Village, finally Mill Village." [4, 8, 15, 16, 17]
