In a book about Orwell, the author claims that this Samuel was born in 1735 and married Polly Russ in 1758. It further states that they had seven sons and five daughters; no mention is made of Abigail.

It also states that this Samuel moved from Willington, CT to Vermont in 1774 leaving behind several of his oldest children. His son Samuel, it is claimed, was bound to a Captain Parsons, "a rich, hard man who thought scanty clothing, light food and hard work, good for boys." Young Samuel was to have board, clothing and three months schooling in the winter, as well as a small sum of money on his 21st birthday.
