David left Virginia, along with the rest of his family, and settled in the lead regions of Wisconsin in 1846. For three years during the summers, he worked in the mines while studying medicine at night. He attended the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1849. In the spring of that year, David first came to St. Paul, where he began to practice medicine. That year, he was elected recorder of deeds. He was a member of the legislatures in 1852 and 1853, representing Benton County, of which he was a temporary resident. David left his medical practice in 1854 and entered the drug business, in which he continued until 1866. In 1871, he was appointed one of the board of the state prison inspectors and in 1874, to the commission of state fisheries. In 1875, David was appointed postmaster of St. Paul, a position he held until 1888. David was also involved with the construction of the Ramsey County Courthouse.
