After looking at this closer I believe that I, and most everybody else have their Sampsons mixed up. I now beleive your Sampson is the son of Daniel and the Sampson that died in Indiana is the son of Gerrard.

Most people have it listed like this:

“Doc” ?


I now believe the Sampsons should be reversed. Case in point is the name Burke. The Sampson from Daniel had a mother Eleanor Burke, with Daniels 2nd wife being from Ireland.

The Sampson from Gerrard had brothers that settled in IN.

I have also found a Sampson line in Tennessee that may be the Sampson (Daniel)


Sampson Trammell
m. Director Smallwood b. 1752 VA – d. 1813

Children of Sampson and Director Trammell
Susannah Pimmet Trammell
m. Abner Cloud b. abt 1772 - d. 1812 – on 2-9-1799

It would be easy to get the two mixed up as they were both born 1750-1753, and I believe the IN Sampson lived in KY for a time, not far from Stewart Co. TN.
