Sam was born on May 9, 1926 in Florien, Louisiana to the parents of Ervin Herbert Touchstone and Ollie Richardson Touchstone Ebarb and passed away on June 23, 2014 in Shreveport, Louisiana. He was a WW II veteran and retired from the United States Air Force in June 1967. He was best known as a historical researcher and author. He researched the family genealogy from earliest known ancestors to the present day. Not only did he accumulate names, birth dates, etc.; he also acquired pictures for most of the family and organized everything in notebooks. He spent a number of years acquiring all his data. Members of the family often requested copies of his information. Sam was associated with the Touchstone Museum in Haughton. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his son, Ervin Touchstone, daughter, Sheryl Touchstone, sister, Margie Pruitt, and brother, Henry Touchstone.
In lieu of flowers, a contribution to the charity of your choice in memory of Samuel will be appreciated.
