History of Armstrong County, Pennsylvania by Robert Walker Smith, Esq Page 262:

"An early, perhaps the earliest, white settler on that portion of "Springfield," in this township, was Samuel Adams, who was first assessed with twenty acres of it and as a blacksmith, in 1824, in Red Bank township, in which the northeastern portion of it was then; in 1828 with 394 acres; in 1831 with 300 acres and one cow at $42.50, with which he continued to be assessed until he removed, in 1834, to near the Great Bend in the Red Bank creek."

History of Armstrong County, Pennsylvania by Robert Walter Smith, Esq. Page 361: "Another parcel, according to the same, 126 acres and 127 perches, southeast and east of the latter and south of the Great Bend, was occupied by Samuel Adams, who appears to have removed hither from "Springfield"--that part of it north of the Mahoning--in1834, when he was first assessed in Red Bank township with 100 acres of the Holland land, probably the parcel of allotments 1, 3, containing 127-1/2 acres conveyed by Willink & Co. to James Anthony, August 11, 1845, for $122.50."

Samuel S. Adams was a blacksmith in Armstrong Co, PA. In 1855, he and his wife, Susannah moved to Iowa from PA. After Samuel's death, Susannah moved back to PA and is buried next to her son , Henry in Mahoning Twp., Armstrong Co, PA.Source: Researcher, Randy L Hack
