Samuel Smead was the son of William Smead junior and Elizabeth Lawrence. He was born on May 27, 1669 in Northampton, Massachusetts. On March 17, 1699, in Deerfield, Massachusetts, he married Mary Price, the daughter of Robert and Sarah Webb Price. They had two children, Sarah and William. On February 29, 1704, Sarah and the children died during the Deerfield Massacre.

Another victim of the massacre was Mary Weld Alexander, whose husband and daughter were killed during the raid. She herself was carried into captivity in Canada. A couple of years later, she was redeemed and returned to Deerfield. Samuel married her about 1707, probably in Deerfield. Samuel and Mary themselves had five children.

Samuel died in Deerfield on January 1, 1731, and is buried in the Old Deerfield Burying Ground.
