"He was the last one of the Revolutionary Pensioners". Sylvester in "History of Saratoga County" says Samuel "fought in the Revolution. Early settler in the western part of Edinburg." In 1797 he worked on Providence roads district 22 which in 1801 became part of Edinburg. Per Sylvester he lived to the age of 103 years.(Note: 105 years on the stone !). On his 100th birthday he went to the woods and felled a tree to celebrate. Also supposedly he built the first frame house in the town in 1795. It was on the south side of King Road NW of town
