Thurmon - The DVD " The Sackett Clan " was given to you by Charles ( Chuck ) N
Sackett, Sr " my wife is Alias Minie Pearl " we are from Warren, New Hampshire.
I'm sorry about your sciatic problem, I know what you are going through I have the
same problem. Hope you are feeling better now.
It was a great reunion we have a lot of fond memories to ponder.

Sorry about that. I keep forgetting that we have members who live in other

Kent is a town in Connecticut, USA. Many of the early "towns" were large
tracts of land granted for a town. Sort of like a township. As the
population grew and disagreements arose, smaller towns were formed. That was
what happened when Warren was formed.
To confuse things here in the USA, many of those who migrated west, named
the towns they formed "out west" with the same name as the town they left.
