Born in Sussex County,DE, the son of Levin & Lydia (unknown) Clifton. Before 1811 he & his brothers ,Noah & Edmond, came to Kentucky from DE. David was one of the first persons to settle Lusby's Mill, Owen Co.,KY. He was appointed as the road surveyor from Cobb Station to Mussell Shoals Church in 1820 and held this position for several years. He was the father of 13 children; 1. Oldest Son Unidentified, 2.Robert b.1805, 3.Polly b. in DE. Married John Kinman in 1818 in Shelby Co., KY, 4. Prissy b. in DE, mentioned in David's will, 5 .John b.1800, 6.Charles b. in DE, 7. David, Jr. b.1811, 8.Edward b.1812 , 9. Wm. Henry Harrison b.1815, 10. Mitchell C. b.1816, 11.Easter/Neese b.1823, 12. Josiah b.1817 13. Eliza b. Lusby Mill, KY
Many of them remained in Owen County and some of them went to MO & TX. There are so many descendants whose names include David it is impossible to count for them all. In my direct line the last is a 4th great-grandson born in the 1970's. I'm sure there are others somewhere more recent.

Due to the deteriorating conditions of the cemetery the marker for David has not been located; however, there is a deed showing the land where the cemetery is located was purchased by David. This land was willed to his son, Josiah. A lot of the markers in this cemetery were only field stone, but a tombstone for David's son Josiah is standing.
