According to the first Leon County Cemetery Records, Vol. I
your David Price was born in New Port England, June 21, 1827 died Dec 18, 1900. And is buried in Section G. 2, in the Centerville Cemetery, located on Hwy 75 on the Hwy about 2 blocks from the Courthouse. He also served in the Civil War, Co. C. Hoods Brigade, called the Leon Hunters.
Do you have his Military Records? If he or his wife applied for a pension there could be some genealogical information in them.

He should be on the 1900 Leon Co. Census and since he joined Hoods Brigade he should also be on the 1860 Leon Co. Census. Since he apparently lived in or near Centerville you should have no trouble locating him on the census records for the years between 1850 and 1900 in Leon Co.

I also have a Price line but it does not connect to your Price line. I live half way between Buffalo and Centerville and was once very active in the Leon County Genealogical Society. I checked the Leon County History Book, published in 1986.

There is a story about a Reece Price born 29 Dec 1840, whose wife was Frances Virginia (Anderson) Laster the daughter of Thomas & Christina (Molden) Anderson, born 17 Mar 1845 and was a young "War Widow" when she married Reece Price 2 July 1865. Do you have a list of your David's children?
Did he have a Reece? Perhaps the son's wife was confused with your David's wife. That's about all I could find for you at this time. Good Luck. CBH
