"I recall 'Uncle Sam' as a tall, slim, muscular, rather handsome man, broned complexion, high cheekbones, black hair and mustache, bearing a startling resemblance to Marty Robbins, a television singer in the 1960s. Uncle Sam had a pleasant personality, got along very well with my father and my grandfather, and I liked him. On one of his visits, he brought his .22 calibre rifle, taught me how to use it, and gave it to me. I still have it." 2


Samuel was in Walpole on business connected with the agricultural industry when he met Annie Deveney. Sam and Annie met at a dance, and on Sam's third visit to Walpole, some months later, he proposed marriage and Annie accepted. They removed immediately to Brasher Falls, NY.


Annie came to Walpole with her parents and brother and sister around 1915. She was a hairdresser and manicurist, and had a shop in the Misses Russell Millinery store on Main Street in Walpole. It was Annie's first and only marriage.
