David Edwards was taxed in Gilmanton, N. H. (1819) for poll only. 
(webmaster's note: I think this statement should be attributed to David Edwards son of this David's brother John; John's family was know to have been living in Gilmanton until the 1830's, and his son David married in Gilmanton early in 1819.)
