Davison Lumber Mill at Hastings
Davison Lumber Mill at Hastings
As you read this article please remember that the Davison Lumber Mill at Hastings was of course built after the death of E.D. Davison, Sr., and after his sons sold the company their father founded to John M. Hastings. Hastings renamed the company Davison Lumber Company. Another point, interesting to us but unmentioned in the article, is that Helen Hastings, the daughter of John Hastings, married Harold Doran "Budd" Davison in 1914 - Budd is the son of E.D. Davison, Jr.
