Samuel's obituary in the Carroll Chronicle, Carrollton, Ohio, Friday, November 6, 1931.

Samuel Burrier died early Thursday morning at his home in Harlem Springs. Funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. Charles Edgar. Mr. Burrier was born April 3, 1846, and spent nearly all his life in Lee Township. He was one of a large family of whom only one remains, Joseph
Burrier of Canton. During the Civil War he was a drummer boy, with his father, as fifer and his uncle, John as bass drummer, taking part in all general musters and all calls for recruiting in the 60's. He volunteered as a drummer but was not accepted on account of his youth.
He was a faithful member of the Methodist Church; his political principles were democratic, and he was a kind neighbor and friend.
Surviving are the wife; a daughter, Mrs. Frank Busler; a grandson, Scott Busler of Carrollton; a great-grandson, and the brother above named.
