H.B. SACKETT, a lawyer of Sacramento, was an arrival last Friday and left
the following day for Hyampom. He has been engaged as counsel for Samuel
HELLAR, who was injured in a shooting affray at Hyampom last week.
MADISON. - We learn that B.R. Sackett, of Oakland, formerly of Winters,
will erect a substantial brick building in the new town of Madison, after
the style of Sackett's Hall, in this town, three stores on the first floor
and a large Hall in the second story. Mansfield and Theodore will also
erect a brick general merchandise store in the new town. Railroad iron for
the extension is beginning to arrive freely.
MAY NAME NEW SECRETARY TODAY
Text-Book Committee Must Fill Sackett's Place
The state text-book committee will hold a meeting in San Francisco today
with Governor JOHNSON and it is expected that one of the things the
committee will do will be to name a secretary to succeed George L. SACKETT,
who recently resigned. Sackett left Sacramento yesterday afternoon and took
most of his baggage with him, planning to go on to Oakland when the meeting
is concluded. Sackett resigned to accept a position as supervising principal
in the Oakland schools.
In addition to selecting a secretary it is likely that the committee will
take action upon a number of text-book changes that have been contemplated.
Governor Johnson is expected also to make some interesting statements on the
text-book situation in the state.
I have updated The Sackett Family Association website http://www.sackettfamily.info with the following:
• Church marriages, London
• Marriages, GRO Indexes, England & Wales (Added 1901–1911. Period now 1837–1911)
• Census, England & Wales, 1891 (Added 28 households; now 75)
• Bible of Mary R Caul
• Bible of Mary A Sackett (1836–1916)
• Adopt-a-newspaper research project (66 records added)
• New members 264 Jeff Bellairs, 265 Jeanette Otis
Ancestry.co.uk have recently added images of London marriage registers to their databases and this update to http://www.sackettfamily.info includes 97 marriage records not previously researched. I have taken the opportunity to reorganise the marriage records on the website. All English church marriages now appear on pages at both County and Parish level. Much confusion resulted from the formation in 1889 of the county of London which absorbed most of Middlesex and parts of Kent, Surrey, and Essex. Marriages in parishes affected by this change appear on the website in both the original county and in London, regardless of whether the marriage was before or after 1889.
The availability online of English census records (not previously indexed in their hard copy form) has made much easier the finding of Sackett households, although the eccentricities of Ancestry's indexing necessitate alertness to the possible need to include Jackets and Socketts. A further 28 households have been found in the 1891 census, and there should be more to come (the 1891 total is 75 households, compared with 120 in 1881 and 110 in 1901).
Thanks to Thurmon King for supplying transcripts and images of the two bibles. The bibles relate to the same Sackett families, who have not yet been linked to established trees.
Thanks too to the newspaper transcribers who have researched further entries. The total is 612 in just three months. I have singled out Thurmon's "Chicken" story as a "favorite" on the newspapers index page http://www.sackettfamily.info/newspapers.htm and have it in mind to compile a separate favorites page. Please feel free to suggest articles for inclusion.
Hello Sackett Searchers,
The research of Jeanette M. Otis, our most recent new member of TSFA, has
brought to light an error in Weygant's book concerning the family of W
#716-Capt. Benjamin Sackett and his wife Phoebe Davis.
Weygant has W#1704-Daniel Sackett, m. Abigail Smith listed as a son of
Benjamin and Phebe. However, the probate records for the will of Daniel
Sackett of Troy, NY and the Diary of George Holcomb of Rensselear Co., NY
indicate rather conclusively that Daniel Sackett of Troy was the son of
Benjamin and Pheobe, rather than the Daniel Sackett who married Abigail
Smith and ended up in Ashtabula Co., OH.
The probate records show that, although Daniel Sackett of Troy listed only
his wife, Sarah (Pardee) Sackett as his heir and and although Witness J.L.
Lane states that at the time of his death Mr. Sackett had no family except
for him and his wife, when the will was set to be proven, the "Surrogate did
then and there issue a Citation to the widow and heirs at law and next of
kin of Daniel Sackett, deceased"(1), as follows:
* Sarah Sackett, Troy
* Ezra D. Sackett, Lebanon, Columbia
* Benjamin Sackett, state of NY
* Calvin P. Sackett, Canaan, Columbia
* Benjamin Sackett, Rushville
* children of John Sackett, deceased
* children of Eliza wife of Uri Hill, deceased whose names and places of
residence cannot be ascertained
* Mrs. Sackett widow of Richard Sackett, deceased
* Joseph Lord, Lebanon, Columbia
* Daniel Lord, City and State of New York
* Elvira Wheeler wife of Charles H. Wheeler, Canaan, Columbia
Elvira (Lord) Wheeler and her husband Charles contested the validity of the
will which indicates that Elvira considered herself to be related to Daniel
"Jeremiah (Ressssor?), Esq appeared as attorney for Charles H. Wheeler and
Elvira his wife to contest the validity of the will(6) (signed 22 Nov 1841),
which was witnessed by Jacob L. Lane and John I. Lamport. The codicil
(signed 18 Feb 1845), which made Charles H. Kellogg executor, was witnessed
by J. L. Lane and Matthew Lane." - [Abstraction by Jeanette M. Otis]
The entries from the Diary of George Holcomb, sent by Jeanette, are the most
"Another curious item in this is from the Diary of George Holcomb. I had
e-mailed the Stephentown Historical Society a few months ago asking for
copies of entries from George Holcomb's diary concerning Ezra, Daniel and
John Sackett. Bill Zimmerman from the Society replied that there are over
1200 pages of the diary and that they will soon be putting out a CD of the
pdf of this document (!); in the meantime, he copied to me 98 pages of
Sackett entries. A few pertinent:"
17 - ... tonight Benjamin Sackett came and S. peneed (subpoenaed) me to the
court betwixt Zachariah Chapman Plaintiff and his Father defendant to be on
5 - Monday my shoulder is some lame, I walked up to Capt Benj Sacketts and
carried home the newspapers that I borrowed of Benj Sackett Jnr, the fore
part of the winter ...
April in 1822
13 Saturday this morning I went up to Capt Benj Sackett and got his grandson
Freeman Sackett and he rode horse to plow for me...
April in 1823
7- carried my wife to Soloinon Carpenters to Mr. Benjamin Sacketts Jnr
December in 1824
22 - ... I fetched a bundle to Benjamin Sackett Jnr from his brother Daniel
February in 1825
5 - ... I fetched two bags of buckwheat flour for Daniel Sackett to his
Brother Benj and he gave me a pitcher ...
Now, we are faced with the task of trying to determine the names of the
parents of the Daniel Sackett who married Abigail Smith.

One Hundred Dollars For One Kiss
Detroit, Mich., July 29. -- Hiram S.
Lapham, a funiture dealer and large
property owner of this city, was fined
$100 to-day for assault. The evidence
showed that while calling on one of his
tenants, Mrs. Carrie Sackett, for rent, he
seized her about the waist and kissed
her squarely on the lips. Mrs Sackett
was angry. Her husband, who entered
in time to witness the osculatory as-
sault, beat Lapham and dragged him
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.
