David Jacob Link served in the Confederate Army during the U.S. Civil War.
From the 1897 book Annals of Platte County, Missouri:
"Mr. Link was a Christian gentleman of sincere piety and undoubted integrity. He entered the Confederate service at the first call and served to the end. He was possessed of superior intelligence, and his genial good nature made him an agreeable companion. A master mason, he delighted in the work of the craft. In 1885 his health failed, and he accepted the Federal office of Farmer and went west to instruct the Indiana in agriculture. After a year's trial of western climate, he found his health still declining, and returned home to find a grave among his kindred."
The 1860 slave schedule shows David as holding three slaves: A woman 22, a 3-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old boy.
David was the son of Son of Israel E. LINK and Elizabeth C. HUFFORD.
He was the grandson of David HUFFORD & Sarah HENSON.
He was the great-grandson of Daniel HOFFART & Elizabeth CASSEL.
