According to his baptism record, Samuel was born on 6 Dec 1827. However he was not baptised until 11 May 1830 which has been confused with his birth date. He was baptised with his two older brothers, Benjamin (b. 9 Oct 1823), and Wm. J. (b. 25 Dec 1825). The church is identified in the record as "Fourth Street (Allen St.) Church, New York" and according to the record title is United Methodist - though in 1830 maybe was a different denomination.

Samuel served in the Civil War. When he was 35 years old, he enlisted at New York city, to serve three years, and mustered in as private in the 72nd Regiment New York Volunteers, Co. K on August 1, 1862. He was transferred to Co. E , One Hundred and Twentieth New York Infantry, June 23, 1864. mustered out with company, June 3, 1865.[1]

Samuel's occupation was as a machinist.
