      _______________

      Based upon the household enumeration order in the 1930 US Federal Census (Yanceyville Township, Caswell County, North Carolina) it appears that the Reverend David Williamson family lived on NC Highway 62 just south of Yanceyville. This is because the Reverend David Williamson family appears only two entries after the Lance Bradner household, which is known to have lived on the east side of NC Highway 62 where the pavement ended before the road was paved completely to the Alamance County line. See the entry in this database for Lancelot L. Bradner (1882-1965).

      However, in 1940 he was living on "School Street" in Yanceyville, which now is known as Dillard School Drive.
