  • Notes 
    • Samuel worked as a carpenter. He was an expert cabinet maker and joiner. He served as Lieutenant in the Ohio Militia. He was a pioneer in Brigham Young's second wagon train which arrived in the Salt Lake Valley 22 Sep 1848. He was called by the church to settle Parowan, Utah along with 28 other families.

      It was said in feats of strength he was a log-roller. He could lay out his strength on an elm log without apparent effort and could throw a strong man as easily as a child..
