Kathy... A reply to an old post, but Milton McMacklin Davison was my great grandfather. I have seen much conflicting info about his middle name but this makes sense. Would love to receive any info you have regarding Brackett. Or webite URL where it is found. My understanding is he dropped the second d from his last name when his paternal grandmother Sarah Sally Brackett Owen died and it was clarified in her will. My questions about him are: Did he earn his sizable income from selling slaves? Did he and Delilah live separately doing the Civil War because she was a Union supportor?
