  • Notes 
    • When David was about five years old, his family removed from Kentucy to Green Township, Hamilton county, Ohio. There, he was educated in the school of David Strathem, a prominent Green Township resident who was a good friend of David's older brother, Henry, also a school teacher. In 1822/23, when David was about age 18, the family removed to Switzerland county. It was here that David married his wife.

      In 1832, David bought from his father, 25 acres of land in the southwest quarter of Section27, where David seems to have initially made his home. In later years, he acquired a substantial 98-acre farm. In addition, he seems to have acquired a substantial share of the eastern half of Section35 along Two Lick Creek, most of which was owned by various of his sons and daughters-in-law by 1883.

      David seems to have made a point of providing a home for otherwise homeless children of other Scudder families in the community.
