Obit - OBITUARY-THE TECUMSEH CHIEFTAN - MRS. O. J. DAVISON PASSED AWAY FRIDAY - Death came as a relief to a longtime invalid mother, Mrs. O. J. Davison, at her home in Tecumseh at 2:20 o'clock friday afternoon, January 19, 1940. A Paralytic stroke brought helplessness to the lady shortly over a year ago, and her final illness was only of two days' duration. She reached the age of eighty-seven years, ten months and seven days. - Caroline Shasteen was born at Mason City, Logan county, Ills., March 12, 1852. Her parents were Edward and Caroline (Fowler) Shasteen, early settlers of Illinois. Her early life was spent in that state and she received her education in the country schools near the place of her birth. On March 19, 1871, when she was nineteen years of age, she was married to Oliver J. Davison at Lincoln, Ills. The next year, in 1872, the young couple started out in a covered wagon to get a home of their own in the then new state of Nebraska. It took them twenty-seven days to make the journey and when they arrived in the state they located in Helena precinct, this county, and for four years Mr. Davison carried mail on the pony express from Nebraska City to Marysville, Kans. After the four years they took up farming and located on a piece of land seven miles north of Tecumseh. They lived here some time later, moving to Tecumseh, and on December 21, 1932, Mr. Davison died. - Mrs. Davison experienced all the hardships of the early settlers in this state, the grasshoppers, the droughts, the long distance to markets and mails, and the hard struggles to live and hold a piece of land on which to make a home and rear a family. She was a hard working woman and a wonderful mother; she reared her own family of ten children and then to help rear some of her grandchildren. She was a fine, christian woman, a good neighbor, a faithful wife, and a kind and affectionate mother. Mrs. Davison had affiliated with the Baptist church since her girlhood. She was a woman much beloved by her family and one who will be missed by a large circle of friends. - Mr. and Mrs. davison were the parents of twelve children, ten of whom survive their mother. The last six children born to them were three sets of twins, who, with the others, were at their mother's funeral. The surviving children are: Will E. Davison of Lincoln, Mrs. Ed (Ida M.) Goosman and Ollie Davison of Tecumseh, Henry O. Davison of Portland, Ore., Edward Davison of Tecumseh, Mrs. Carrie Tripp of Hebron, Mrs. Willis Robinson of Tecumseh, Mrs. O. F. Spencer of St. Joseph, Mo., Chancie Davison of Auburn and Mrs. Ted (Cora) Randolph of Tecumseh. Other relatives include thirty-three grandchildren and thirty-three great-grandchildren.
