I also have a gggrandfather from McDowell County NC whose name is Jim (James) O'dear. His first child Willie (William) O'dear was born 1864. So I'm supposing Jim was born around 1844 or so. Was told by some old family members that Jim had a brother name Sam and that they came over from Ireland. Could this be connected to your Samuel?
