__________________________Further Research Required According to source 00838:67, Samuel, Margaret and family lived in Kansas (Kaiser?) from 1872 to 1882. Is the place name Kansas (as in the state), or Kaiser, or some other variant? Sources 00838:23, 00838:67 and 00947:1 indicate that he died March 20, 1904 while another source that this writer came across, but can't locate now, indicates June 30, 1904. According to the inscription on his tombstone, 01775:#17, he died March 20, 1904.
