Biographical data
Name: Salter, David Mede  
   Also known as: Rev. David Mede Salter
Born: 1833
Died: Oct. 1914
 
Notes:
Gaige gives year of birth as circa 1833. Steve Mann gives 1832/1833. Gaige gives date of death as Oct. 1914. Steve Mann gives date of death between 19 Oct. and 26 Oct. 1915. The Chess Player's Magazine of July 1864 (p.218) has 'Rev. Dr. Salter', but the Aug. 1864 issue (p.242) has 'Rev. D. Salter', which is probably a correction. La Stratégie (15 Sep. 1867, p.209) has 'D. Solter'. The Westminster Papers of 1 May 1872 (vol.5, p.5) has 'S.M. Salter'.
