Biography

Samuel was born about 1784. He is the son of Jacob and Betsey Muma. In 1809, he married Elizabeth Misener. He died in 1865.

During the War of 1812, Samuel Muma served as a private in the 2nd York Militia. He served from October 17 to 24, 1812. [1]

He deserted from October 25 to November 24, 1812 from the same company. [2]

He was absent from September 17 to October 24, 1813 from Captain William G. Hepburn’s Company. [3]

On September 16, 1815, he made a war claim as a resident of Beverly Twp. for losses to allied Indians. In October, 1813, he lost three-quarters of a ton of hay. In July, 1814, he lost a breeding sow and had eighty pounds of beef taken from a barrel by force. In November he lost a heifer.
