    David is believed to have spent part of his minority with some of the Batchelder families. On 14 Aug 1679, he was admitted a resident of Salem at the pleasure of the selectmen. He served in King Philip's War and is listed among those serving under Capt. William Turner from 7 Apr 1676. He appears on the Salem freeman's list of 18 Apr 1691.

    On 5 Jul 1697 Thomas Waterman of Norwich, Connecticut deeded to him about twenty acres of land with a house located in West Farms. The deed recorded him as being a "Tayller." A later deed, 1703, recorded him as a "yeoman." He settled in Norwich West Farms, which afterward became the town of Franklin. In Franklin histories his homestead is plainly marked on maps and his descendants remained in the same location.

    He is often referred to as a physician, being the first of that profession to settle there. He and his wife were among the original members of the church which was established in 1718, and he was deacon of the 2nd Church from that time until his death. A selectman in 1709, he is reported to have built a sawmill in Beaver Brook which ran about 100 rods north of his home in 1713. He also taught school in Norwich for a time.

    See Norwich Probate No. 2504: His will dated 29 May 1727, named wife Rebecca and "my four children" and was entered 1738, and witnesses Benjamin Armstrong, Daniel Rockwell, Jacob Hazzen all appeared. The son Ebenezer was made sole executor. The inventory shows a good stock of household furnishings, brass, pewter, linen, and his library. Ebenezer should have the homestead, all livestock, farming, tools, two guns, sword, amunition, "all my physick books and 1/3 other books" he to pay expenses and debts out of what is given him, and to pay L20 to son Jonathan (Jonathan had already gone away to Maryland at this writing) within one year after his decease; also to give his mother "a sute of Morning: in case she survives. The sons David and Samuel are given each 1/3 of the books, physick books excepted. (Does not state what these two sons had peviously received.)
