Sampson Frum, son of William and Anna Smith Frum, removed from Frederick County, Virginia to Morgantown, (West) Virginia in 1803, along with his family.

Sampson began to purchase land with his savings and by his death in 1862, owned the largest acreage of any single individual in the county. He also owned 360 acres of land in Frederick County, Virginia, of which 200 acres was willed to him by his uncle, Samuel Smith.

Sampson married Elizabeth Ann VanGilder, daughter of Jacob and Anna Margaret K(G)ibler VanGilder on June 11, 1815 in Monongalia County, (West) Virginia.

Mr. Frum's primary intersts were farming and livestock. There was little local market for his products, so he drove his cattle by foot, east to Baltimore, using his farm near Winchester as a place to rest.

Old cemetery records note that Sampson was a veteran of the War of 1812.

Tombstone has a beautiful "tree of life" carved at the top, but the remainder of the stone is now difficult to read.
