- He inherited Essex Farm as a minor from his uncle Benjamin Franklin in 1822 after his death. He died in 1831; he drowned in College Creek while attending St. John's College. He died intestate, and Essex was passed on to his four sisters.
From then until 1851, when Dr. Franklin Waters moved from Anne Arundel Count,y it was owned partly by the sisters; Samuel gradually bought out the other heirs until he and Rachel Waters owned the entire farm.
Dr. Waters records services to his estate in Ledger B, fol. 209v and 210r. He is called Samuel Franklin, orphan, and the bills are to the estate of Dr. Samuel Franklin, deceased. Franklin Waters names himself "guardian" here.
