Samuel immigrated to Marion Township, Allen County, Indiana, with his parents when he was four or five months old, in the fall of 1839. He moved to Marshall County, Indiana, in 1850 but soon afterward moved back to Allen County, Indiana. He joined the George Miller family in moving to Fontanelle, Somerset Township, Adair County, Iowa, in the summer of 1857.
In 1866, Samuel’s brother, Frederick and his son Daniel W. Marquart, joined Samuel in Fontanelle, where Daniel married Sam’s wife’s sister, Mary Etta Miller, on 18 March 1868.
In February 1898, Samuel, with his nephew Daniel W. Marquart, and ten other men, organized a party to go to the Klondike gold fields. They tried to get through to Dawson by way of White Horse Pass, but snows in the mountains proved too great an obstacle. They returned without reaching the gold fields.
