Samuel Head Cessna married Mauretia Brown, and had children Mina Mae and Walter Howard. In 1920 they lived in Detroit, with his brother LaRue, LaRue’s new wife, and brothers Joseph and Howard, all in the same building. In 1925, Samuel was in California with his new wife, Mignon Scott. In 1930 the two children lived with Mauretia and her new husband, Walter Henry, while Samuel and Mignon were back in Detroit with a new daughter, Mildred Jane. In both 1920 and 1930, Sam was a streetcar conductor. Samuel and Mignon eventually returned to California, and remained there.
