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.
