In 1776, in the company of James Gay, his brother-in-law, Benjamine Blackburn, and William Elliott, Samuel made an expedition to Kentucky. In 1779 he and his family moved to Lexington, Kentucky, where it was said that she was the second white woman in that territory.
Samuel borough old with him also "Wild Cat" John McKinney, famous as Lexington's first school master who almost died at the battle of Point Pleasant during the Revolutionary War.
In April 1780 the Stevensons moved to McConnells Station. Until 1784 they planted crops in Woodford County, when they moved near Pisgah, Kentucky.
Samuel was an officer of the state militia of Kentucky, was in the Illinois expedition of General George Rogers Clark, and in the expedition of Captain Robert Patterson against the Shawnees in 1781. He generously donated the land upon which Pisgah church was erected. About 1795 he purchased large tracts of land near Xenia, Ohio, to which property three of his sons moved to about 1799. William E. Railey, History of Woodford County (Kentucky), 1938, reprinted by the Woodford Improvement League, pp 157-159.
