Teresa,
I am very much interested in knowing if Joseph David Davisson could have had a younger brother named William Davisson. William would be my great-grandfather. The story goes that he changed his name from Davisson to Davidson coz everybody spelled it wrong anyway. William married a women named Mary Knight & hailed from Virginia. They had several children. One named Ira, which led me to believe there might be a connection since he may have been named for your George Ira Davidson. This may be a far stretch but please let me know if you think there is a link. Thanks, Sue Collins(Davidson)
