David Lafayette Church was born in Pinkeyville, Ill., on July 26, 1875. He spent his early childhood along the Mississippi near the scenes of the Mark Twain stories. He moved to Texas at an early age, living there for several years. As a young man he moved to Ravenden, Ark., and was married there at the age of 25 to Alta May Marks. He came to Joseph in 1908 and moved in 1934 to Enterprise, where he lived until the time of his death.

He was a carpenter by trade, but spent several years at farming.

Surviving are his widow, Alta Church, Enterprise; and children Edwin Church of Enterprise, Mrs. Maude Gibbs of Joseph, and Mrs. Viola Ashton, Enterprise, and seven grandchildren. Deceased children are Archie L. Church who passed away in infancy in 1903 and Garnet L. Church, who died in 1931.
