In 1776 he served for three months in Captain Zokad Spring's Company of Militia and was discharged at the end of his enlistment, having been employed against the Tories and in guarding the frontiers. In 1777, he served another three months in Captain Thomas Carr Company. In 1778, he served a tour of duty under Captain Moses Sutton. In 1779, he served another three months under Captain Sutton, guarding the prisoners of Beesons Town and scouting between that place and the Monongahela River. His last service was in the expedition of Colonel William Crawford against the Indians on the western frontier.

Samuel and Mary survived the Pigeon Roost Massacre and moved back to New Bardstown, Kentucky and did not return to Indiana until after the Indian Wars. When their Isaac was a small child they moved from Kentucky back to Indiana.
