Samuel served in the American Revolution from York as quartermaster and captain, receiving the rank of major in the militia
at a later time.
By 1778 he settled at Sanford where he opened a store at Sanford Corner.
He was one of the foremost men in Sanford of his time; he served as selectman, town clerk, town treasurer, representative to the General Court, and a delegate to the Massachusetts convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution.
He died in New York while on a visit.

Son of William NASSON and Mary HODGKINS.

Samuel was originally interred in one of the oldest cemeteries in Sanford, located at the corner of Main and Roberts Streets.
Reason for re-interment was to construct
a municipal building on that site.
When they exhumed his remains, nothing
was to be found as it had turned to ashes.
When a person is not actually buried in Oakdale cemetery, there is no card in the caretakers office.
His stone is to the right of Joanna's and is inscribed with his initials only. (very faint). Their stones were removed from the old burial site to make room for the building.
