The family moved to Ulster County, where he married Rachel Schoonmaker. In 1769, they moved to Montgomery (then Tryon) County. Sampson Sammons was, during the early part of the Revolution, one of the famous Tryon county committee, which controlled the military operations of Central New York. Sampson was the first man west of the Hudson river at whom a shot was fired in the Revolutionary struggle. The occasion was the attempt to capture Alexander White, the tory sheriff. Sampson Sammons was at that time in his fifty-third year, and was therefore legally exempt from military duty. The privilege, however was waived by him and many other patriots, and a company of exempts was formed or which Jelles Fonda was captain and Sampson Sammons lieutenant. Sampson was taken prisoner in 1780 together with three of his sons. His property was destroyed, his buildings burned, and his wife and daughters were left in extreme distress, being destitute even of the most needful clothing. After meeting with Col Johnson, Sampson and his youngest son Thomas were released. But his other two sons, Benjamin and Frederick, were marched off to be prisoners in Canada suffering great torture. Frederick was maimed for life.] >> <<
