Samuel, born in 1670 in Yarmouth, died about 1727, farmed south of Worden Pond, Rhode Island, married his first cousin Rose Holley in 1700.

Samuel was one of the first freeman at Kingston in 1696. He was living on the Pettaquamscutt Purchase south of Wordens Pond in 1700. In 1715, he recieved 100 acres from his father.

At his death, Samuel owned 150 acres of land north of Worden Pond, South Kingstown, RI. After his death (without leaving a will) the six children subdivided the tract into six lots of 25 acres each. They did this with a set of quitclaim deeds executed 9 Jun 1729, whereby for each lot five of them quitclaimed to the other. (Their mother retained her dower right on each lot.) This set of deeds serves to define the children of Samuel II (unless one or more others died in infancy) as Edmund, Samuel III, Daniel, James, Jeremiah, and Hannah. An estate inventory made in 1727 is of record, as well as an accounting made by Samuel III, but no evidence has been found of disposition of movable goods among the widow and children. However, none is necessary as regards family composition: there could have been no more living children in 1729 than those accounted for by the quitclaim deeds. There were two minor children in 1729, of which Rose was granted guardianship.

Samuel II, son of Dr Samuel did not marry Rose Goodspeed. Marjorie Schunke call this her greatest error. He did marry Rose Holley (see Holly, Hull & Allen,%20Allen%20&%20Hull.htm )
