Daniel Davison is believed to be a Scottish prisoner of war. Currently, it is  not known as to which battle he may have participated in, but there is an entry on the page for the “Battle of Worcester SPOWs,” “266. Daniel _____?,” which might be him. It still needs further research though.

You can read an excellent article about him at the Harrison County Genealogical Society:

Daniel Davison clearly has descendants in the States, whereas the Davison I found was dead and buried in a winding sheet paid for by the Ironworks Company by early 1651, so they must be different people.” ~ Dr Andrew Millard
