Samuel B. McCune, who resides on section 15, Otter Creek township, is another native son of Wisconsin and is of Scotch-Irish ancestry. He was born in Fond du Lac county, November 18, 1862, to John M. and Mary J. (McConnell) McCune, and is a grandson of Joseph McCune who was descended from prominent Scotch and Irish families. The parents of Mr. McCune were pioneers of this state, and ranked among the foremost citizens of their county. At the age of 62 years, the father died and the mother was burned to death by the explosion of a kerosene lamp. 

Samuel B. was educated in the common schools of Wisconsin and has spent his whole life at farming. He owns a farm of 320 acres of good land in Otter Creek township, a large portion of which is under cultivation and well improved. He carries on general farming and stock raising and by his shrewd and economical management since he purchased the farm, he has made it one of the most modern and model country homes in the county. Politically he is a Republican and believing in the principles of the Republican party, he takes an active interest in its affairs. Among the fraternal orders of which Mr. McCune is a member are the Modern Woodmen of America and the National Fraternal League. 

In 1886 Mr. McCune married Miss Minnie Cook, and they are the parents of the following children: Frank, who married Miss Hazel Arries; Vera, now Mrs. Earl Ketchum; Cecil Cook; Verda May; Max; Hazel and Helen.
