Youngest child of Jacob and Margaret "Peggy" Rearick. A lumberman and farmer Samuel lived on the south side of Penn's Creek, two miles east of the Millmont bridge. In their later years he and his wife moved to Sunbury.

Samuel and Emily's children were:

Ella Rearick

Cora Rearick
b. 1875 d. 1959
Margaret Rearick

James J. Rearick

Maurice Rearick

William Rearick

Herbert Rearick

Samuel served in Co. G, 41 Pennsylvania Militia Infantry during the Civil War.

The 41st PA Militia Infantry was an emergency unit called up (with others) when Lee invaded Pennsylvania in 1863 (the "Gettysburg" campaign). The unit was "under arms" from early July until early August 1863 and posted at Reading in the Susquehanna District.

These emergency regiments did, for a short time, reach federal status. According to Mr. John Heiser, a Ranger/Historian with the Gettysburg National Military Park,

"The Emergency and Militia regiments raised in Pennsylvania during the summer of 1863 were under Federal authority, having been mustered into service of the United States to 'serve during the pleasure of the President, or the continuance of the war.' Thus, the veterans of these units were eligible for membership in the Grand Army of the Republic as long as the individual had been honorably discharged from service."

The War Department created two military districts in Pennsylvania. The 41st PA Militia Inf. served in the Department of the Susquehanna, which had authority over the eastern half the state, under Major General Darius N. Couch, USA.

Therefore, even though he served only for a about a month, Samuel was considered a Union Veteran and was likely a member of his local G.A.R. Post.
