Birth: Jan. 20, 1853
Macon County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jan. 30, 1937
San Bernardino County
California, USA

Samuel died in San Bernardino, California. His body is buried at, Rialto Park Cemetery, FAG#26463492. No marker found at this cemetery. It was confirmed with this cemetery that he is buried here. Per his daughter, Prilla's journal, he died on Jan 30 1937 and was buried Jan 31 1937 in California. But, the Tombstone was placed at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Rockdale, Milam, Texas with his wife, Lorinda, FAG#89362809. This stone has death year as 1936. This is not correct, it should be 1937. Death cert. has not been found yet.
At this time, I am still unsure if he was born in Randolph or Macon County. Daughter Casandra's birth certificate say's he was born in Cuthbert, Randolph, Ga.
