Sam lived with his family in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1881.[1] He lived in Chiet, Ontario, Canada. According to his sister Mary's obituary, he was living in Sascatchawan.

In 1901 the Canadian census has the 34-year-old living with his wife and two young daughters in Dudswell, Richmond & Wolfe, Quebec. His heritage is listed as German and religion as Presbyterian.

Samuel is mentioned, with middle initial of J., in his brother George's 1907 Obituary.[2]

In 1911, his marital status was listed as single. He was living as a boarder at 15 Main St., Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, and working as a carpenter. This census lists his birth as February 1866 instead of 1867. It must be Samuel since he was from Nova Scotia.

A OneWorldTree source says he died in Saskatoon in 1961. This source has his middle name as James.
