I'm happy to join the mailing list. I am descended from Richard Sackett and
Margery, John Sackett and Elizabeth Masten, Mary Sackett and Alexander McKay, Elizabeth
McKay and Alanson Edwards, Electa Edwards and Isaac Briggs, Maria Sophronia Briggs and
Hiram Johnson, Julia Maria Johnson and William Trelease, William Trelease, Jr. and Helen
Elizabeth Waldo, and finally me, Allen William Trelease. So, I am a long way from the
Sacketts, but still interested.

Eight year old Timmy was assigned by his teacher to write a piece about his
origin. Seeking cooperation, he questioned his mother:
"Mom, where did Grandma come from?"
"The stork brought Grandma."
"Well, where did you come from?"
"The stork brought me too."
"And me too?"
"And you too dear."
Timmy wrote the lead for his composition:
"There have been no natural births in our family for three generations."
Now we know why we encounter "Brick Walls."
