Portrait photograph of Zalmon Hillman Clemson University Libraries Portrait photograph of Zalmon Hillman, father to Chasia Hillman Davidson, and maternal grandfather to A. Wolfe Davidson. In his memoir, The Power of Pearls, Davidson attributes his family's emigration to the United States to Hillman's decision to give a pearl necklace belonging to his late first wife to his second wife, rather than to his daughter Chasia. According to Davidson, Chasia's younger brother Berry was so upset by this snub that he demanded his father pay for passage to America in order to mollify him. Berry Hillman would settle in Anderson, South Carolina, and become the touchstone for each successive emigration of members of the Davidson family, concluding with A. Wolfe and Chasia emigrating in 1922. Image taken from negative. On back: Mss356_0956n-0957n; [Zalmon Hillman]
