From the family genealogy authored by his son, Lawson William Magruder (1842-1908), written c. 1903:

"Samueal [sic], the youngest was born in Columbia Co., Ga. Jan. 12th, 1818, and died October 31st, 1897 at Crystal Springs, Miss. He was a planter for most of life in Madison Co., Miss. to which place he removed in 1837. He was in (about) 1848 Captain in the state militia. Was an elder in the Presbyterian church and removed a few years before his death to Crystal Springs, Miss. of which city he was for a number of years the Mayor. He was noted for his intelligence, force of character, integrity and piety. In 1841 he was married to Rebecca Sprigg Drane, the daughter of Thomas Drane and Rebecca Harding. She was born in Montgomery Co., Maryland, and removed when an infant with her father's family to Logan Co., Ky. and settled on Red River near Russellville, and in 1841 went in company with her sister, Mary Drane, to visit her brother Judge Wesley Drane in Canton, Miss., where she shortly afterwards married Samuel Magruder and her sister, Mary Drane, married Tulleus [sic] Cicero Tupper, a distinguished lawyer and Maj. General of the State troops, during the Civil War 1861 to 1865. Their children, born in Canton, Miss. and now living, are Henry Clay Tupper and Walter Drane Tupper of Fresno, Calif., Tulleus C. Tupper, an Episcopal Divine of Atlanta, Ga. and Annie Tupper, wife of Judge Robt. Powell, now circuit judge of Jackson, Miss."
