Memorable Manitobans: Bertram Francis “Bert” Davidson (1884-1956)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born in the Osprey School District on 9 November 1884, son of Robert Alexander Davidson (1856-1922) and Thomasina “Jennie” Gerrond (1856-1936), he farmed, was President of the Mentmore Pool Elevator, and was a charter board member of the Neepawa Consumers’ Co-operative. He also served as a six-year municipal councillor, including Reeve of Langford (1946-1948), trustee of the Osprey School District, and member of Gordon United Church. On 17 January 1914, he married Jean Balantyne McNab (1889-1961) at Neepawa and they had five children: Robert Davidson, Douglas Gerrond Davidson (1919-2011), Margaret Davidson (wife of James Bruce), Mrs. Ernest Mitchell, and Evelyn Davidson (wife of Mr. W. Wintonyk). Around 1950, he retired to Vancouver, British Columbia and died there on 14 April 1956. His body was returned to Manitoba for burial in the Riverside Cemetery.
