Jordan and Hadden's Genealogical and personal history of Fayette County, Pennsylvania pg 465:
"Judge Samuel Anderson Gilmore, son of John Gilmore was born in Butler, Pennsylvania, January 21, 1808, died in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, May 16, 1873. He was educated at Jefferson College, studied law under the direction of his father, and was admitted to the bar January 8, 1828. He practiced in Butler, becoming very well known and popular. He was elected to the legislature 1836 and 1837, and was secretary to the constitutional convention of 1838. In 1848 he was appointed judge of the territory forming the fourteenth and twenty-seventh judicial districts by Governor Shunk, when that office became an elective one. In 1851 he was easily elected president judge, an office he held until death. After his appointment as judge he lived in Washington, Pennsylvania one year, then located in Uniontown. He was the ideal judge, learned in the law, impartial and a hater of wrong or injustice. He endeavored to see that justice and equity prevailed in every case that came before him and had the unvarying respect of the lawyers whose cases he sat in judgement upon. He was a Democrat in politics and a member of the Episcopal Church."
