Note: birth date also given as Nov. 28th A.D. 1770, by a write up by John Rittenhouse in 1957.

Samuel may be buried in the same cemetery as his first wife, Elizabeth, but, if he is, his tombstone is no longer visible. He died in Perry Twp., Pike County, Ohio. He was born in Worcester Twp., Montgomery Co., PA.

"The cemetery is off of Route 41 onto Muddy Fork Rd. Take a right onto Muddy Fork Road and continue down dirt road to the bottom of the hill, take another right and the cemetery is on the hill. I visited the area today (June 14, 2016), but couldn't find the head stones for all the weeds."
