From the account by Weygant, 700-Solomon's father, 256-Solomon, moved from
New Haven to Norfolk, Litchfield Co., CT and died there in 1823. Jacobus has
a different date:
Died 8 Aug 1823 [Families of Ancient New Haven, Vol. VII, Families of
Ancient New Haven, Sackett, Page 1586]
Colebrook and Norfolk are very close to Sandisfield, MA
With Sacketts from New Haven, CT, Westfield, MA, and Dutchess Co., NY all
living in Litchfield Co., CT and Sacketts from New Haven, CT and Westfield,
MA living in Berkshire Co., MA; I wouldn't be surprised if some of them
thought they were all related in some way. After all, that is what "family
tradition" told them.
On another subject; this week I had an offer from John Lisle which is

I have purchased a package and recently implemented it for my Davidson
It is a fairly extensible technology in that while I can host it and set it
up. I could give you the rights to update the gedcom as you make changes and
add pictures and other such things as will make for an instructive site for
Of course, I would be donating this to the organization.
If you send a current gedcom, I will be glad to do an initial setup.
Before we go public, I will need at least a short welcome message like is on
the front page.
I responded with some questions about access and if it could be accessed by
the public, by password, or both. He responded with:
The database can be public or private based on how you want to operate it.
It has privacy protection for living people and I can set certain parameters
to fit your privacy model. Registered users - ie those with approved
accounts can have more access than people who are just guests.
An advantage of this tool is that a person can easily create registry and
pedigree reports from any place in the database. But the real unusual
strength is in its search capabilities.
this is a site where I have my Sackett data. It is temporary until I move to
the new server.
you can search almost anything in their advanced search function. I now use
it whenever I am looking for anything as it is easier than anything else I
Because of the fact that John said that he would be donating the site to the
organization (TSFA) I feel that it should include more than what I have.
What are your thoughts?
