Reverend Samuel Umstot 1837 -1923



This story is about Reverend Samuel Umstot, born April 10, 1837, Hampshire Co, Virginia. He lived in Reeces Mill. He died July 18, 1923, Mineral Co, West Virginia, and is buried at Baptist Chapel Cem, Cabin Run, Mineral Co, West Virginia. He married Catherine Hollenback.

On the reverse of the clipping it's mentioned that Emperor William's yacht Hohenzollern "is 11 years old." The date of the yacht's launching was apparently 1902, according to Internet sources, so apparently this clipping was from 1913, making Samuel about 76 years old at the time this happened.
