Sometime between 1850/1860 Samuel married Mary E. unknown and probably in Greene county.I have emailed a look up to Greene county and will see what they can find.I will be in Greene county in October to check on another line of our family and will certainly check on a marriage for samuel and the estate papers of his father Samuel R. Sr.You may have most of this already but just thought I would forward it on.Did you ever find out when and where in Texas Samuel died and is buried?I also found a listing for a Samuel R. Truesdell in the Roster of Confederate Soldiers 1861-1865, Vol XV, page 336.Missouri 3rd Cav. Co. A.I believe that you or another family member mentioned he was in the Confederate army.Good luck and will keep in touch.
