    Notes 
    • Left for California before son was born in 1907 on urging from his father John. Estate papers for mother Annie indicate he was in California in 1908. Came back when his son was 3 and the family moved to California, Compton.

      They returned to Philadelphia when Samuel was 15-17 years old.

      This would mean he was in Pennylvania in 1900, possibly in California or Pennsylvania in 1910. In 1920 he would still be n california.
