Samuel was the son of George Bixby and Sabina Merrill, and husband of Mary Elizabeth Traphagen (married September 2, 1862).
His company manufactured shoe blackings and shoe dressings, but music was his passion. He was also a Sunday school superintendent and choir leader.
If you know where to get a good photo of Bixby (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
