He was the fourth son of Ebenezer Foote and Rebecca Barker, and the fifth in the line of descent from Nathaniel and Elizabeth Deming Foote, who came from England about the year 1633 and settled at Wethersfield, Conn., in 1635. David's father was a soldier in the army of the Revolution. He died while in the army at Mud Fort, Horse Neck, Conn., in June, 1778, when David was in the tenth year of his age.
