Edward D.T. Davison, Jr. was born in 1845, son of Edward Doran Davison, who headed the largest lumber business in Nova Scotia, with property totalling 200,000 acres. In 1885 the company employed 350 men and fifty teams of oxen to supply and run five mills, three of them capable of cutting up to 250,000 feet daily. Davison, Jr. lived in Mill Village and later in Bridgewater, and on his father’s death he assumed leadership of the business, which was renamed the Davison Lumber Company. Davison, Jr. became the second mayor of Bridgewater and died in office in 1902.
