  Two of Sampson and Elizabeth's sons, Burnell and Lewis, were Patriot soldiers during the Revolutionary War - Burnell in North Carolina and Lewis in Virginia. 

Lewis served as private in the Virginia militia and was promoted to Captain. He was taken prisoner and held for nine months on a prison ship.  When released, he became acquainted with General George Washington.  Washington gave him a sword to replace the one that had been lost and this sword was displayed by family members for decades in Georgia.   Lewis moved to Duplin Co. about 1780 and served as a Captain of the Duplin Militia.  He moved to Anson Co. by 1790 and on to Screven County GA by 1800.  Lewis drew land in the 1832 Cherokee land Lottery as a Revolutionary War Soldier.  According to DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), Lewis ended his career as a Major.
 
 
 
Sampson, Jr. died about 1757 in Brunswick Co, Virginia.  He was approximately 45 years old.  After his death, Elizabeth married Cuthbert Smith
