    David came to Tucker County with his father. In the spring of 1779 he enlisted in Captain William Haymond's Rangers where he served nine months and was discharged. In the summer of 1780 he was drafted and served six months in Captain Biscoe's Company under General George Rogers Clark in Indiana against the Indians. He was again drafted in the summer of 1781 and served another six months in Captain Salathiel Goff's Company against the Indians. After his marriage in 1787 he built a stone home in St. George, now torn down, in which school and church were conducted before buildings were built for the purpose. David died of cancer of the throat and is buried in St. George beneath the Minear memorial. He received a pension on Certificate No. 23,565, Survivors File No. 15,932. The text of his pension application is reproduced in C.J. Maxwell, "Descendants of John Minear, 1732?-1781," Ann Arbor, Edwards Bros., 1948.
