Hello Sackett Searchers,
On 29 Jul 2004 Jill Hernandez posted a message which included:
"WELL here is something I have never heard before .. this name ???
Surname ... WIXSON, SACKETT 304 1865 CENSUS YATES COUNTY NY
TOWN OF BARRINGTON INDEX"
I had run across this name in my research of the family of Thomas J. Sackett
of Potter, Yates Co., NY but had not found the connection of Sackett Wixson
to the Sackett family.
Last night, while checking for a place location, I ran across Sackett
Wixson's connection to the Sackett family on the Steuben Co., NY GenWeb
pages, under the link to "Steuben County - Family Bibles." Posted there are
entries from the Wixson Family Bible.
From the Wixson Family Bible entries it appears that Sackett Wixson was a
son of Daniel and Deborah Conklin Wixson. Daniel's sister Elizabeth married
1717-Benjamin Sackett. This makes Sackett Wixson a nephew of 1717-Benjamin
and Elizabeth Wixson Sackett.
