Sarah Louise Winstead Davidson

John Shead Davidson and his wife Sarah Louise Winstead Davidson were on again and off again residents of Charlotte, North Carolina, as Mr. Davidson was a member of the clergy who held several positions in churches in the southeast.

While in Charlotte, John S. Davidson partnered with his two brothers to own and operate Davidson Bros. Funeral Home beginning in 1935. Though not an original member of the founding corporation that developed the Cedar Grove Cemetery Assn., Mr. Davidson purchased around two acres out of probate in 1955–all that remained of the original 67+ acres– “reopening” it as the Cedar Hill Cemetery.  More plots were sold, but Mr. Davidson passed away in 1972 and the cemetery then fell in to disrepair.
