27 . Per the 1880 Census : S.S. Riffle (age 24) lived in Shelby Co., TN on a farm. This farm was co-owned by Mr. Riffle, C.S. Gandy (age 21) and W.M. Gandy (age 20). All three men were originally from Mississippi. - How did they know one another? Riffle, Samuel Scott (I216)
 
28 1. Was overseer of a cotton plantation in Ellis County, Texas owned by Earl Fort. Probably moved there because the Faucetts were already there - Sam came from Tennessee with his wife.

2. Left Ellis County to homestead in OK panhandle (near Ivanhoe OK). Sam bought a 'relinquishment', proved it, and lived there for 3 years. Then moved with his family across the line back to Texas (near Follett).

3. Early days : while living in Mississippi, Sam heard that Sherman was coming. He got on his horse and rode to warn the neighbors. Sam had a favorite horse at the time, he took her bridle off and gave her a swat on the rump - if Sherman was going to take his horse, he didn't want to see it!

4. Sam found his half-sister through a Confederate soldier's reunion in Nashville (about 1880). He went with Andy Newt Faucett, his father-in-law. Josephine's husband was asking around for Sam's whereabouts and happened to ask Andy Newt Faucett!

5. Per 1880 Census : Sam (age 24) lived in Shelby Co., TN on a farm. This farm was co-owned by Sam, C.S. Gandy (age 21) and W.M. Gandy (age 20). All three men were originally from Mississippi. - How did they know one another?

6. In later years, Sam and 2nd wife Mary lived with youngest daughter Katie and her family. Legend has it that every year on his birthday (reunion-like events) he went out into the field with a pitchfork and returned with a rattlesnake, even when he was an 'old' man.

7. Some remember that he once jumped out the hayloft with his grandson Mackey - he would have been quite old at the time, and Mackey doesn't recall it, but...
