Betsey SACKETT, b. 1777, d. 1814, m. Uriah HILL. (see
Betsey was the daughter of Weygant's #716, Capt. Benjamin Sackett, 1752-1826, of
Stephentown, in what is now Rensselaer County, N. Y., son of (268) John Sackett, M. D.,
was married Nov. 11, 1773, to Phebe Davis. He was an active participant in the war of the
Revolution and is credited with service under Colonels Whitney, Harper, and Van
Rensselaer. He also served the State as Captain of Militia for several years after close
1698. John Sackett, b. in 1774, d. in 1841; m. Abigail Robbins.
1699. Betsey Sackett, b. in 1777, d. in 1814; m. Uriah Hill.
1700. Ezra D. Sackett, b. in 1779, d. in 1858; m. Chloe Pachin.
1701. Richard Sackett, b. in 1781, d. in 1814.

1704. Daniel Sackett, b. in 1788, m. Abigail Smith.

1706. Benjamin Sackett, b. in 1792.
1707. Lavinia Sackett, b. in 1795, d. in 1819; m. Joseph Lord.
Perhaps someone else on the list descends from the above Uriah and Betsey (Sackett) HILL
and could tell us if they know of a son named William, b. 1799.
