Samuel was married to his cousin Esther Townsend, and they had a son named William Penn. Samuel was a merchant in the family merchant trade, and while on business in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1773, he caught a fever and died at the age of 24. Tragically, just two months later, his son Penn also died, aged 1 year, 6 months and 4 days, in Oyster Bay, leaving Esther a deeply grieving young widow.
