Samuel came to California from Ohio on January 3, 1849. He was Justice of the Peace in Sutter Township which was also where he resided. He was found murdered at his residence with his throat cut and skull fractured. It was supposed that robbery was the motive, and the prime suspect was his namesake nephew who was eventually convicted of the crime and sentenced to be hung.
