Biography

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE

For whatever reason there are family members that insist on confusing this David Pringle with the David Pringle that was born in 1803 in Selkirk, Scotland and the David Pringle born in 1806 of Pennsylvania. He is neither of those, though because their are names in common among direct family members it is very easy to get them confused. Due diligence is required with this profile to make sure the right records are being attached and not just "oh this looks right" and sticking the citation into the biography and thereby causing more confusion, as exists currently on Ancestry and MyHeritage. This profile is so far correct, regardless of the fact that information is missing as noted within the biography.

Birth

David Pringle was born in about 1804 in Edinburgh, Scotland. As of 22 Aug 2018, the family has still not been able to ascertain his parentage. One Professional Genealogist in the UK believes it may be the David Pringle, born in Edinburgh in 1786, but neither she nor the profile manager have been able to find proof of this.[1][2][3][4]

Marriage

David married May Morrison on 07 Nov 1824, at Saint Cuthberts,Edinburgh.[5]

Profession

1841-David was a Carver and Gilder. While Carver is self-explanatory, a gilder is one who applies gold leaf to objects such as books, ornaments, jewelery, pottery, etc.[2]
1851-By 1851 David became a Carver & Gilder Master.[4]

Military Service

No records of military service have been found thus far.

Death

David's date and location of death remain a mystery. Finding whether he came to the United States with his wife has also been difficult (the record of the David Pringle of Pennsylvania was thought to be him, but is definitely not him). Originally it was thought that he died in a after 1871 in Edinburgh, however, the profile manager is not 100% sure that is the correct David Pringle, as the question remains, why did his wife die in Manhattan, but he died in Edinburgh?[4]
