Samuel was the oldest of seven children born to Stephen Cady and Abigail Lee of Killingly, Connecticut. He was married in Killingly on 1 January 1746/7 to Elizabeth Winter, the daughter of Samuel Winter. In 1749 he received a gift of seven acres of land on the road from Woodstock, CT to Providence, RI. In 1756 he bought a 60-acre farm from William Farmer. In 1764 he disposed of his Killingly property, and bought a farm in Shutesbury, Mass., where he spent the remainder of his life. Following his death in 1799, his daughter Rhoda Allen and her family occupied his dwelling house for a while. His house remained standing until about 1888, at which time it was razed, though the foundation to the cellar was discernable for a while thereafter.

Samuel was a soldier of the revolution, and enlisted in the company of Lt John Trask, Col. David Leonard's regiment, on 26 February 1777, and marched to Ticonderoga before being discharged on 10 April 1777. He enlisted again on 22 August 1777 in Capt Moses Harvey's Company, Col Woodbury's regiment, and was discharged 22 November 1777.

Samuel and Elizabeth had ten children, all of whom grew to maturity, married, and had children. As a result, Samuel and Elizabeth had 78 known grandchildren. While Samuel is buried here, his wife lived to be 103 years old, and died in Prescott, Mass., likely living with her daughter, Abigail, near whom she was likely buried.
