Samuel was an extensive land owner. In 1803 he built a very substantial stone mansion in Kistler Valley, which remained his home to the time of his death, and which has until recently (1916) been the property of his descendants. He built the Kistler mill near Tripoli. For many years he was an Elder of the Jerusalem Church, and it was while he held that office that the present house of worship was erected, 1812-1814.

Samuel was an extensive land owner. In 1803 he built a very substantial stone mansion in Kistler Valley, which remained his home to the time of his death, and which has until recently (this being 1916) been the property of his descendants. He built the Kistler mill near Tripoli. For many years he was an Elder of the Jerusalem church, and it was while he held that office that the present house of worship was erected, 1812-1814. All these buildings erected about a century ago, stand as firmly to day as though they had been built in recent years. Samuel was twice married. His first wife Elizabeth Ladich, bore him three children, and his second wife, Catharine Brobst, twelve. He was in the Rev. War and served in the Northhampton Co. Militia for the west portion of Lynn twp.
Documentation by Carolyn Buttolph:
Samuel was the youngest and most prolific son. His children were also prolific; Samuel's family is the largest branch of the Kistler family.
Gravestones at JER show Samuel, 9/20/1754-4/24/1822, and his (second) wife, Catherine nee Brobst, 12/16/1767-3/26/1845.The DAR Patriot's Index also show Samuel's first marriage to Maria Elizabeth Ladich; papers at HSBC show that Maria Ladich was born 11/22/1761. Based on baptismal entries for Samuel's children, his first wife must have died 1779-1788.
