  • Notes 
    • David was a man of uncommon ability and distinction in his day, holding many public offices in his native town and county. He was clerk of the courts, and at one time a presidential elector.

      According to his son, Charles, in a letter written to Charles' son, David was a very large man nearly six feet in height and very fleshy, weighing about 280 or 290 pounds. He was a man beloved and respected and quite popular among the people. He always kept a small store of goods, but his time was mostly occupied as a Justice of the Peace in various town offices. He was a very nervous man. When anything excited him, he could not sit still but would rise and walk and whistle and take out his tobacco box every minute or two.
