A Davison Native In Dixon, Illinois - Ronald Reagan's Boyhood Home

We visited Ronald Reagan's boyhood home is in Dixon, Illinois.  After our visit I stumbled across an item indicating that someone from my home town (Davison) had been living in Dixon in 1916.

Davison Notes:  L. G. Adams, Jr., of Dixon, Illinois, spent the week end with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. G. Adams of this place.

L. G. [Leonard] Adams, Jr. married Ada Maud Pettis.  Ada's brother Herbert married Mary Elizabeth Carpenter.  My great-aunt, Ellen Johnston, married Mary Elizabeth's brother, Loran Dell Carpenter.
