I have updated The Sackett Family Association website www.sackettfamily.info with the following:
• 1850 United States Census
• Bible of Merrill Sackett (1817–1886)
• Adopt-a-newspaper research project (140 records added)
The 1850 census records are taken from a file provided by Thurmon King.
The images of Merrill Sackett's bible are kindly supplied by John Griffin <ten-seven(a)worldnet.att.net> who bought the bible at a thrift store in Seattle. John hopes to make contact at the reunion in July. Members having a particular interest in this item may wish to contact John in the meantime.
Many thanks to the Adopt-a-Newspaper volunteers who have transcribed another 140 articles this month. There is plenty of work to be done if others would also like to help. Please ask about volunteering on the List.
F. M. Sackett was Fred Merrill Sackett, son of Harvey Chafy Sackett and
Sophia Post. In the 1905 Wisconsin Census he resided in Stevens Point. By
1920 he was enumerated in Portage, WI.

Message Board Post:
Andrew Paul Sackett of Yellow Springs, Ohio died on Saturday, March 4, 2006. He was 88.
Born on Aug. 8, 1917, in Colville, Washington, Andrew was the youngest of 11 children of James Earl and Antoinette Hall Sackett. He was a descendant of colonists John and Simon Sackett, who came from Sandwich, England, to settle in the New World in 1631.
Andrew went to Washington State College in Pullman, Wash., when he was 16. Three years later he began medical school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and completed an internship at the U.S. Marine Hospital, San Francisco.
On March 14, 1942, Andrew married Zillah Elizabeth Faux Larson of Salt Lake City.
In 1945, he became a commissioned officer in the United States Public Health Service and took his family to the South following World War II, then New York City and later Seattle. He was transferred to Washington, D.C., where he served in administrative positions. During that period, he earned a master's degree in public health from the University of London, England, in 1962. He retired from active duty in April 1967, with the rank of assistant surgeon general (rear admiral).
Andrew spent four years as commissioner of health and hospitals for the city of Boston. Later, he and Betty enjoyed 22 years living in Hawaii, where he was the district health officer and ran the historic Leprosy Treatment Center at Kalaupapa, Molokai. They retired and lived for seven years in Woodburn, Oregon.
Andy and Betty came to the Friends Care Assisted Living Center, Yellow Springs, Ohio in January 2000, as the third and fourth residents. He greatly enjoyed his years there and was popular with a wry sense of humor. Friends Leta Banner and Inez Foster assisted him after he lost his wife Betty on April 19, 2004.
He was an exceptional father to four children, Polly, Clarice, Christine, and Joel, who died in 1990 at age 32. Andy enjoyed bicycling, running marathons and traveling in his RV with Betty.
Andy is survived by his children, Polly and Carl Cordell Jr. of Yellow Springs, Ohio; Clarice and Charles Jackson of Woodville, Wash., and Christine and John Hoover of Kailua, Hawaii; grandchildren Cary and Christopher Cordell, Neil and Dana Jackson and Nina Collins Sackett of Granville, Ohio; and five great-grandchildren, Cameron, Chandler, Cory and Cassidy Cordell and Kyla Rapp.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 9, at 6 p.m., at the Yellow Springs United Methodist Church, with Pastor Charles Hill officiating. Burial will be held Friday, March 10, at 10 a.m., at Glen Forest Cemetery, Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Memorial contributions may be made to:
