Re: Samples of Albany, NY
I am also researching the David & Margaret Latta Sample line.
Some people show him as William - I think his name may have been David William Sample (or vice-versa).
They had two children that I know of for sure, Anthony Martin Sample and Nancy Ann Sample (m. James Russell Latta).
Some trees show a daughter, Anna, but I don't know where that comes from.
I believe I have found another son, William Sample, who married Eliza Potts, probably the sister of Anthony Sample's first wife, Mary Ann Potts (two brothers married two sisters).
Anthony Martin Sample married three times and had about 18 children. Anthony and many of his children moved from Hastings County, Ontario to Huron County, Ontario and then to Michigan.
Ted Rinness has done extensive research on the Michigan Samples and all their descendants.
I have been working on the pre-Canada and Canadian line, (Anthony Martin Sample's daughter, Sarah (Sally) Sample Shepherd, is my gr-gr-grandmother.)
My mother and I have just this month gone thru her grandfather's photo album and identified a number of photos of the Samples, including Anthony Martin Sample and his first wife, as well as photos of a number of their children and grand-children.
I would be very interested in sharing information with you.
