Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1908
Pawnee County
Oklahoma, USA

PARENTS: Jehu Ackley and Elizabeth Ator.

SPOUSE: Married Sarah Rush in 1852, Greene County, Pennsylvania.

CHILDREN: Michael Rush, Francis Marion, John, Henry Wilson, Sherman, Abraham Lincoln, Lucy Anna, and Lenora Jeanne.

PLACES LIVED: Greene & Washington Counties in Pennsylvania; Athens County, Ohio; Richland County, Wisconsin; Marshall County, West Virginia; Montgomery & Anderson Counties in Kansas; and in 1878 arrived in Chouteau, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. He later moved to his final home in Keystone, Pawnee County, Oklahoma. His sister Lucy wrote: "Samuel never stopped long enough for his horses to cool off!"

NOTE: He was a farmer, a plasterer, had a saw mill, and long before Oklahoma's statehood, the Osage Indian Tribe gave him permission on July 18, 1891 to operate a ferry on the Cimarron and Arkansas Rivers. Tulsa historians record Sam's operation of a ferry on the Arkansas River where the 23rd Street Bridge stands today.
