Some of this information is taken from the 1902 Chatham Township, Bothwell County, Ontario Census found on the Ancestry.com website.

The census lists Samuel as a laborer, but family stories say he was a lumberjack and quite a craftsman. samuel would travel up and down the Detroit River looking for work, stopping in at home when he could. It's said that he made a violin that was gorgeous. His daughter, Vera, had tried to find the violin but wasn't successful.
