Samaritan A. Dulin was the son of Lewis Jr. & Clemence (Spenny) Dulin. Samaritan grew up on the family farm of his parents in Norwich Township, Franklin County, OH. On February 19, 1857, Samaritan married Miss Harriet Latham who died two years later at the age of 19 after giving birth to George Harvey Dulin. Samaritan next married Miss Thankful Clawson (a.k.a. "Closson") on September 18, 1859, in Franklin County. On July 28, 1862, Samaritan enlisted in the 95th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and was assigned to Company A. On June 10, 1864, Samaritan was captured by Confederate cavalry forces under the command of Nathan Bedford Forrest at the Battle of Brice's Crossroads (a.k.a. the "Battle of Guntown, MS"). Samaritan was confined at the notorious Andersonville Prison for a period of about four months and was there to witness all of the famous events which have become associated with that Georgia P.O.W. camp: "Deadly August" (during which month the death toll reached 100 per day), the "miraculous" appearance of "Providence Spring" during a heavy thunderstorm, and the hanging of the six Andersonville "Raiders" inside the prison walls. Samaritan's presence at Andersonville is verified by his National Archives military file and he can be found on the current Andersonville database of known survivors. Following the Civil War, Samaritan returned to Franklin County, OH, removed to Hancock County, IN, & moved a final time to Champaign County, OH, where he and Thankful spent the remainder of their lives. Samaritan & Thankful parented seven children between the years of 1860 & 1889: Edna Dulin, Gratia Dulin, Lula May Dulin, Nellie Maybelle Dulin, Charles Dulin, Emma Pearl Dulin, & Ernest Clawson Dulin.
