Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 27, 1837
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 14, 1924
Mount Pleasant
Westmoreland County
Pennsylvania, USA

Killed when a bull being led with other cattle through town to the rail yard broke free running through the street and the crowd panicked. Samuel was elderly and walked with a cane, he was knocked down by the crowd and died of a fractured skull.
This was according to his son, disputing published stories (and even his death certificate) that Samuel was attacked and thrown by the bull.
