Hello, I am a newbie and have been watching this list with great
I have decided to get my 'feet wet'and ask for help. My ggg. grandmother
was MARY ELIZABETH SACKETT b. 1829 in New York. Her parents were EZEKIEL
SACKETT and ELIZABETH WOODWARD. Does anyone have knowledge of this line?

According to Charles H. Weygant's 1907 publication - Sackett's of America,
Their Ancestors and Descendants 1630-1907 on page 166 there is an Ezekiel
Sackett, b. Nov. 22, 1786. There is nothing else on him or his descendants
in the book but he did have one brother (Benjamin) as being "Of Tryon,
Steuben Co., N.Y." and another brother married a Hannah WOODWARD. Slim
clues, I know and he would have been 43 if father to your Mary Elizabeth,
but not an unheard of age for a father. My Father was 40 when I was born.
There are other Ezekiel's; however with no clues. Hopefully someone on the
list knows of your Ezekiel! Good luck!
