David Jr.'s birth year calculates to 1798 from the headstone transcription; however, Groton MA Vital Statistics demonstrate his birthdate to be controversial. It is listed first as Feb 19, 1786; second as corrected from Mary Shattuck's bible records [PR15], Sept. 19, 1796.
It is likely that David's birth is earlier than his tombstone transcription would relate; his wife Anna was born 1787, which makes his original birthdate of Feb 19, 1786 more believable. His mother also would have been over 40 years old if he were born in either 1796 or 1798. Headstone inscriptions are often unreliable.
David is buried in same row with his parents and right next to his wife Anna, so there is no doubt as to this being the same David in the aforementioned records.
He married Anna Lakin on May 19, 1822.
