He claims there were also children named Jason, Mitchell and Theodore
Gregg also states Samuel and his father Deacon David are buried in Bowsherville Cemetery located on the Killdeer Plains wildlife refuge and special permission has to be given to visit the site. The graves are in disrepair with many of the stones broken or sunken. The cemetery records state he was 54 years old.
