The dates seem close enough to be a connection. My info indicates that Rachel Davison born September 1866; died December 17, 1900 was the daughter of Sylvanus Davison and Ellen Elizabeth Hulse. She is buried in the Bethel M.E. Churchyard in Plainsboro, Middlesex County, N.J. I have that she married Charles H. Van Kirk and had a son Victor, born 1884. 1900 census indicates Rachel had 3 births with only 1 child living who I believe is Victor. I do not have the names of the deceased children. Rachel had a sister, Ellen, which could be where the Ella came from for the deceased child that you show. 1910 census indicates Charles remarried to a Mary. According to the 1910 census Johnís fatherís name is Victor T. It appears that John also named a son, Victor. Johnís son, Victor, and his wife, Eve, died in the 1918 pandemic. Do you know if Johnís middle name is Davison? Do you have any information on a Robert Davison marrying a Van Kirk in the 1700ís? I would be interested in sharing info.
