Peter Davison & Moses Davison in the 1860 US Federal Census

Interestingly, this was found in Ulster County NY and these Davison boys were born in NY. A beautiful old 1870's CDV photo of a drawing of young Leon, who appears about 4 years old. This is most likely a memorial or mourning photo, it is peculiar, and artistically touched up, as in it is a mix of photography and a pastel drawing. Davidson is an alternative spelling. We could find no reference to Leon or Leonard in public records. It is possible he did not make it into census records between say 1870 to 1880. A beautiful old post mortem CDV piece. Leon wears an amazing old outfit with high button shoes, sitting on a plush velvet bench.

Size: 2.5 by 4 inches
