Married to Margaret Brown in 1759 According to child birth locations Samuel came from Ireland to America between 1763-65.
But according to speculation in a letter found in 1955 he immigrated when he was 14 years old and settled near Stillwater, N. Y.
BIRTH DATE Abt 1740 Birth year approximated from the following: -William Cooper’s [Brother-in-law to Samuel McBride] age calculated from his tombstone. Died 20 Mar 1812 age 76 yrs (1812-76=1736) -Samuel McBride’s TIB lists birth as “abt 1740 of Stillwater, Saratoga, New York.” -LDS Archive Sheet for Samuel McBride states “abt 1740 of Stillwater, Saratoga, New York”. BIRTH PLACE -Samuel McBride was born in County Antrim, Ireland. -Reuben McBride records in his family records that Grandfather Samuel McBride is born in “Iireland” and my Grandmother Margaret McBride is “from Ireland” Also Reuben states that Samuel McBride’s father [gives no name only relationship] was “Born and Died in Ireland”. FHL film #1035908 -John McBride, states in his Seventy’s Quorum Record “My grandfather Samuel McBride was born in Ireland, Entrim County...voyaged to New York and there died”. 17th Quorum of Seventies Records BYU film # 6164 pt. 2.
RESIDENCE - Saratoga Patient, Great Lot #17 Lot #3 [sub lot 1 of 4] -S. McBride’s home appears as a cabin on a map found in the book Burgoyne’s Campaign by Charles Neilson. FHL Book US/CAN 974.748 H2n. -S. McBride. “Simeon Barbour and George Coulter owned the clearings and cottages where the second day’s battle opened, and one S. McBride had his homestead to the north of them, apparently where the farm buildings of the late Mrs. Ebenezer Leggett stand.” The Story of Old Saratoga by John Henry Brandow FHL book 974.748/S1 H2b. -McBride House appears on a map found in the book “Battles of the American Revolution” by Henry B. Carrington. The map title is “Battle of Bemis Heights”. - “McBride Farm so called” is listed in the estate of the late John Livingston, Esquire about 1805. The farm was in the possession of Mrs. Mary Livingston at the time. It was being processed as part of an estate settlement. This information is listed in the Farm Maps and Surveys Book #1 A-B page 41. Found in the basement of the Albany County Court House. I knew of this book because of a Lis Pend index which listed it [ FHL film #466871] , when I visited the Court house in Albany. An veteran worker took me down into a very deep basement and showed me this book, which was part of a series. To my knowledge the series has never been filmed. Saratoga Patient, Great Lot #17 lot #3 [sublot #1 of 4].The McBride Farm so called, 97.15 acres. -Unnamed farm shown on the maps of the battles fought at “Saratoga” and “Bemis Heights” as drawn by Wilkenson. -“Rev Daniel McBride came from Ireland to America when he was 14 years old. And settled near Stillwater, N. Y. “[This was copied from a letter from Belle Strang of West Unity, Ohio to Mrs. Della D. Edmunds of Salt Lake City, Utah postmarked 3 Nov 1955. A photo copy in possession of Gerald Lowell Christiansen] “Settled near Stillwater, New York”. This statement is an affirmation of the facts discovered about the McBride family having settled in the very north part of the Town Stillwater and that they did not live within the Village of Stillwater. (Note:Rev. Daniel McBride is in error. It should have read Samuel McBride.)
Abt 1754 - I think that Samuel McBride may have been fourteen year of age when he emigrated to the Americas. This is speculation is derived from a letter sent to Della Dames Edmunds from a Belle Strang postmarked 3 November 1955. If this assumption of mine is correct, then we have a new piece of information about Samuel McBride and that is he was 14 years old when he came to the United States.
“Rev Daniel McBride came from Ireland to America when he was 14 years old. And settled near Stillwater, N. Y. “ [This was copied from a letter from Belle Strang of West Unity, Ohio to Mrs. Della D. Edmunds of Salt Lake City, Utah postmarked 3 Nov 1955. A photo copy in possession of Gerald Lowell Christiansen]
This statement states that Daniel McBride was from Ireland and emigrated at the age of 14 to an area near Stillwater, New York. I think this is mix up history. We know that Daniel was born in New York. I think this statement is confused and refers to Samuel, Daniel’s father and not Daniel. These next statements substantiates this conclusion. Reuben McBride, a son of Daniel McBride, states and records that Daniel was born in Stillwater, New York on the 13 (3) September 1766. And that his father Samuel McBride was from Ireland. Uncle William Cooper lists a Daniel McBride as one of the three lives in his lease in 1769. I believe that Daniel is his nephew and is the son of Samuel McBride. Daniel would have only been three years old. Also we know from Reuben and his brother John that Samuel McBride was born in Ireland and not Daniel. New questions: Did he emigrate with his family, Was he an indentured servant, etc? What port did he set foot in the Americas in? We can now look for a Samuel McBride age 14 landing in the United States. Too bad we do not really know when he was born. Or where he landed in the United States - New York ?, Pennsylvania?, Etc.
Known Relations - Margaret Brown McBride is the sister to Sarah Brown Cooper, wife of William Cooper.
13 Sep 1766 (some say 3 Sep 1766) Daniel McBride born in the Town of Stillwater, Saratoga District, Albany, New York and is now know as Town of Stillwater, Saratoga, New York [Not the village of Stillwater]. Reuben McBride’s Journal and Family Records give the birth date and place. FHL film # 0281279. Also Martha McBride Knight also gives the same date. Mary Ann Anderson McBride (wife of Reuben) list the same date. LDS Archives family group record gives the birth date as 3 Sept. 1766.
3 Aug 1769 Daniel McBride is listed as the third life of a Three Life Lease of William Cooper’s, the brother-in-law of Samuel McBride, Land lease. This record proves a relationship between William Cooper and Daniel McBride. The lease is for a piece of land situated on the Saratoga Patient Great Lot #16 farm #8. This relationship is confirmed in Reuben McBride’s records. Found in the NY Secretary of State Library’s collection of Phillip Schuyler’s Papers box 21 in Albany, NY.
26 Nov 1776 “From a return of the poll for the election of [Albany] Committee [of Correspondence] in the District of Saratoga it appears that the following persons are duly elected Viz.” Samuel Mackbride is listed as having been elected for a six month term. Albany, New York Committee of Safety and Correspondence, FHL Film #1035658 item 5. This is a patriot cause that supplied a form of government during the Revolutionary War. I conclude from this he was for the cause of American Independence. His brother John McBride, married to Susana Simpson, is a proven Tory.
Samuel Mackbride is listed in “Book of Names” as being part of the Albany Committee of Correspondence. FHL Book 974.7 F2pm, page185.

-Marion A. Christensen verbally told Gerald Lowell Christiansen, a couple of years before he died, that he obtained all of the children for the Archive Family Group Record from Reuben McBride’s Journal and Family Records. That family reunion was in Hyrum, Utah. I believe in the Hyrum City Park up Blacksmith Fork Canyon.
