      David was the 1st of 7 children (4 sons and 3 daughters) born of Samuel Wing (1704-1773) and his wife Anna Barlow (1697-1778). David's siblings were: Jonathan (b. 1731), Constant (Content) (1733-1784), Thankfull (1734-1812), Hannah (1736-1736), Samuel (b. 1738), and Stephen (b. 1740).

      David married, December 14, 1760 at Rochester, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, Sarah Parker (1732-1815) by whom he had 6 children (3 sons and 3 daughters): Hannah (1761-1767), Sarah (1764-1823), David (1766-1806), Thankfull (b. 1769), Joseph (b. 1771), and Josiah (b. 1776).

      On December 28, 1772, at a Rochester Town meeting, David was one of a committee of 7 "to consider the approaching struggle and report at an adjourned meeting." Fourteen days later the committee reported: "That they were entitled to all the rights of natural born subjects of Great Britain and had not forfeited said rights, and that the acts of Parliament raising a revenue in America with extended powers of the Board of Commissioners and Court of Admiralty, and the stationing a part of the many troops here are at variance of our rights established by charter.". At the same Town meeting they voted: "That our representatives, or any person in this town, either has or shall basely desert the cause of liberty for the sake of being promoted to a post of honor or profit or for any other mean view to self-interest, he shall be looked upon as an enemy to his country, and be treated with that neglect and contempt he justly deserves."

      David was the Clerk of and served 4 days in Lieutenant Seth Brigg's Rochester Company of Militia, which marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775.

      David served 8 days as a Private in Captain Joseph Parker's Company, Colonel Ebenezer Sprout's Massachusetts Regiment which marched from Rochester to "foglon ferry" Rhode Island under the command of 2nd Lieutenant John Doty on the alarm of December 8, 1776.

      In 1778, David served a total of 13 days during 3 different alarms. In the 1st two alarms, he served at Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, in the 2nd Company, commanded by Lieutenant John Doty, Colonel Ebenezer Sprout's Regiment, May 6-7th and September 5-11th. In the 3rd alarm, he served, September 13-17th, in Captain Barnabas Doty's Company, Colonel Ebenezer Sprout's Regiment at Falmouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts.

      David moved from Rochester to Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont, in 1792, following his son David who had moved there in 1791.
