Birth: Jul. 24, 1798
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 29, 1885
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA

Mr. Samuel Crouse died at his residence in Center township, this county, Tuesday, Sept. 29, 1885; aged 88 years.

Mr. Crouse was among the earliest settlers in the county, and married Miss Rebecca Fordyce, daughter of Jacob Fordyce, deceased.

A family of eleven children was reared by them, seven of whom are still living, Layton, Enos and Mrs. Dr. S. S. Williams in this county and the other four in the West.

Deceased was a good, kind-hearted citizen, always ready to assist the poor and needy in time of want. He made a profession of religion when quite young, and so lived that his daily walks were in accordance with his religion, dying in the hope and firm belief of wearing the crown that is promised to the faithful. His wife had many years ago passed on before him. The sorrowing firends have the sympathy of the community.

Waynesburg Republican, October 6, 1885


Passed to spirit life, Tuesday, Sept. 29, 1885, aged 87 years 2 months and 4 days. Father Crouse lived over fifty years on the farm on which he breathed his last. He was a good law-abiding, social citizen and christian gentleman. As nearly universally beloved and respected as is possible for one to be. His oldest daughter is still living and is a great grandmother, which made him a great great grandfather. He was a native of and has always lived in Center township.
