Emigrated to America in 1866 on the sailing ship Frederik Petersen out of Bergen on May 1st, arriving in Quebec, Canada on June 2nd. Between 1863 and 1866, Samson became the owner of Tolstad farm in Vestre Slidre after being a husmann (crofter) there for some years. It is assumed that the family chose to emigrate due to the famines taking place in the Nordic region at the time.
