Samuel was born January 1, 1887 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He was the second of five sons born to John James Smurl and Ellen E. Ferguson. Sometime after the birth of Frederick (1894), Ellen died. In 1898, John remarried a woman named Ann Higgins, then had two more children- both girls. It was Ann who converted the Smurl family to Catholism and took the boys to church.

On May 20, 1908, Samuel married Mary A. McAfee at St. Dominic's Church in Parsons. They had nine children: Helen (1908), Jimmy (1910), Marie (1914), John (1915), Rose (1919), Sarah (1922), Edna (1924), Gerald (1926) and Joan (1926.) He worked as a trackman in the coal mines for most of his life. He died 14 April 1943, in Plains, Pennsylvania.
