Ted, I don't know if the Westfield Town Records have been transcribed. I
would surely welcome that project if it hasn't been done. This is the
perfect site to post it. Patty B

Subject: [SACKETT-L] A Daniel Sacket family of Westfield
I hope that I am not duplicating work that somebody else has already
done, but I am
currently going through an LDS microfilm of Westfield Town Records,
transcribing any items that I can find involving the Sacket line.
When I am finished, I hope to post the results of this effort here on
this board. So far, I
have found no big differences with what Weygant published in 1907;
mostly just errors in
However, I just came across one family that is significantly different
from what Weygant
published, and I thought that I would post this now; perhaps somebody
else can fill in a
few more of the missing pieces.
Weygant published, pp. 95, 96:
CAPT. DANIEL SACKET, 1734-1824, of Westfield and Pittsfield, in State of
Massachusetts, son of (35) Daniel and Mary Weller Sacket, was married,
in 1755, to his
first wife, whose name has not been ascertained. In 1768, he was married
to his second
wife, MRS. MAHITABLE CADWELL DEWEY, daughter of ABEL CADWELL and his
wife ANN DWIGHT, and widow of Ashbel Dewey. ...
482. DANIEL SACKET, b. in 1756; m. Sarah ----.
483. LEMUEL SACKET, b. in 1758, d. in 1834; m. Annie Francis.
484. Alanson Sacket, d. in 1798.
485. Elijah Sacket.
486. NOADIAH SACKET.
487. ---- Sacket.
488. LYDIA SACKET, b. Aug. 7, 1775, d. Dec. 3, 1822; m. Oren Goodrich.
Married (1): 13 May 1762 WIFE Rebecca GILLET
She died died : 18 Dec 1767
1. Noadiah SACKET BORN: 6 Nov 1762 DIED: 19 Apr
2. Ann SACKET BORN: 1 May 1765
Married (2): 22 Sep 1768 WIFE Mehitable (CADWELL) DEWEY
1. Lem SACKET BORN: 25 Jun 1769
2. Tryphena SACKET BORN: 18 Apr 1771
3. Roxey SACKET BORN: 6 Jul 1773
4. Lydia SACKETT BORN: Aug 1775
5. Mehitable SACKET BORN: 4 Dec 1779
So perhaps this Daniel was married three times, with the first,
unidentified, wife giving
birth to Daniel, a Lemuel who died young, Alanson & Elijah. I have not
relating to any members of this first family.
Has anybody else already done all of this?
