In 1936, the 2 Jarrow marchers were:
1. James Davison of 65, South Street, Jarrow
2. Richard Davison of 51, Salem Street, Jarrow
On the 1939 Register we see:
1. James Davison of South Street, Jarrow. b.25 May 1907. Married. All other occupants are blanked out.
2. Richard Davison of Salem Street, Jarrow. b.5 Jan 1912. Single.
Elizabeth May & Mr. Pharoah married in 1940.
From the above information, we can see that of the 2 marchers mentioned, only James Davidson could have been old enough to have been the father of Elizabeth May.
I checked the 1939 Register for the whole country and could not find a Margaret M. Davison/Davidson on there, born at the correct time… maybe this indicates that she is one of the children blanked out on the list of other persons present in the household of James Davison of South Street, Jarrow.
I hope this helps.
