Notes  from Kathy Baker:

Abigail was 100 years old.

David was born on the ship coming to America from Ireland. He lived in Pennsylvania and Ohio prior to moving to Illinois. Abigail was a native of Pennsylvania.

Abigail's maiden name was Ensley. They were married in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, and they immediately moved to Ohio. They lived there some years and then returned and located near Pittsburg. David was a tailor by trade, and also engaged at one time in keeping a hotel, toll gate and post office where he lived. In 1842 he moved to Peoria County, Illinois, settling south of Edwards' Station. They lived there one year and then moved to Richwood Township and subsequently to Timber Township, and after that he bought a farm in Logan Township. Later in life he and his wife sold the farm and moved to Peoria. They had three sons and seven daughters.
