I think you have found the correct David. I did find the census records in the USA, eventually.

Deborah Brownfield-Stanley had kindly posted quite a number of Newspaper Obits a while ago. Reposted below.

One other family connection I haven't yet made is David and Alexander's cousin, Elizabeth Campbell, daughter of John CAMPBELL & Isabella HOUSE, who married MR. J. Clay PRYOR. 1908. David and Alex IRONSIDE are listed as her cousins in her obit. Reposted below.


From the Leon Reporter, Leon, Iowa Thursday, April l0, l924
DAVID IRONSIDE, a well-known citizen of Leon, died Monday night after an illness of only a few hours, his death being due to a blood clot which affected his heart. Last Friday while cranking his auto he was struck on the right arm by the crank, inflicting a painful injury, but an X-ray examination showed no bones broken, but his wrist was sprained and the arm swelled considerably. Monday afternoon, he was again working around the car, and complained of a sudden pain in his arm. A physician was called and he was given attention, but about ll o'clock that night he passed away. MR. IRONSIDE was 64 years old. Funeral services will be held at the Presbyterian Church, Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock.

He immigrated to the United States in the year of l888. He worked at his trade as a stone mason until l894, when he moved to Iowa, and settled on a farm northwest of Leon where he resided until l906. After a visit to his native home, he and his brother, ALEXANDER, moved to Leon, where they have since resided. In April, l9l6, he united with the Leon Presbyterian Church and was a faithful member until his death. A man of sterling integrity will be missed by a large circle of friends.

Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian Church, Rev. W.B. Paterson our Scotch Minister, using for his text, "If a man die shall he live again." "Because I live ye shall live also." The church was beautifully decorated.

Thursday, July 2l, l92l

ELIZABETH CAMPBELL, daughter of MR. and MRS. JOHN CAMPBELL was born Sept. 28, l888 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and passed away at her home in Humeston, July 4, l92l, aged 32 years, l0 months and 7 days. She came to America with her mother at the age of 8 years and was united in marriage to MR. CLAY PRYOR June lst, l908.

MRS. PRYOR was a member of the Presbyterian Church from early girlhood. She greatly appreciated the church and regretted that circumstances had deprived her of regularly engaging in its activities of service and worship as she so much desired. Yet her Christian spirit and bearing revealed how effective had been her early church training. One could not be long in her presence without being impressed by her true Christian spirit. She heartily appreciated the kindly ministrations of relatives and friends during her illness and never tired of giving them praise. Far from fretting or rebelling at her continued ill health, she repeatedly expressed herself as reconciled to God's will. It is not surprising that she had no enemies. If there had been such, her very spirit breathed forgiveness; her life was a gospel of cheerfulness and charity to all. And in going, she leaves every one her friend. She knew the "Way", and went with untroubled heart.

The near relatives who survive and were present at the funeral, are her husband, CLAY PRYOR; her mother, MRS. ISABELLA HOUSE; MR. PRYOR's father, W.B. PRYOR; three cousins, MRS. COTTERILL, DAVID and ALEX IRONSIDE; and MR. PRYOR's three sisters, MRS. H. PORTER, MRS. J.A. POSS and MRS. E. REYNOLDS.

"A loved one has gone from among us,
She has gone to Heaven,
And all her troubles are o'er."

The funeral, Wednesday, July 6th, was largely attended, was held in the Christian Church; a quartet from that congregation with Mrs. Gardner as pianist furnished appropriate music; the sermon was by Rev. T.R. Gray, Pastor of the Congregational Church. Burial in the Garden Grove Cemetery.
