David was in Union County, Indiana, by November 1828 and left in 1864 by wagon train for Mercer County, Illinois. His wife Jane moved to Mercer County, Illinois, after her first husband’s death and had left a married daughter there; she had brought her young sons from her second marriage back to Union County with her.

David was a strong Democrat, but also a peace Democrat, who thought the issues surrounding the Civil War could be solved by negotiation.
