Samuel and Caroline had two children to die young.  Samuel and Caroline are buried in the Maple Grove

Samuel's siblings were:
1) James, born 1838, married Elizabeth Barlow.

2) Canady.  He was reported killed in the Civil War.

3) Sarah married Joseph Freeman.

Half-siblings through Robert's marriage to Delilah Vance were:

9) Thomas married Laura McCoy.

10) John Bise married Elizabeth Kilgore.

    The half-siblings, except John, are identified as "Vance" on the 1850 Russell County Census.  Some descendants assume that the children belong to Robert Bise because of the close association of the Vance, Bise and Hampton families in Roan, Tennessee.  Please note that Robert Bise was living next door to Delilah on the same census.
