Re: Inquiry re. Charlotte Elizabeth Hume (Freeman) 1906 - 1994

Ted Smith #55
 

Not an artist.
-- Ted

The Philadelphia Inquirer (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), 10 Oct 1994, Page MD11

Charlotte H. Freeman, 88, retired marriage therapist

By Bill Price and Grog McCullough
FOR THE INQUIRER

Charlotte Hume Freeman, 88, a retired marriage therapist and daughter of three generations of American teachers and doctors in East Asia, died Saturday at Waverly Heights in Gladwyne.

Born in the mountain village of Kuling, China, she was raised by her parents in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, where her father founded the Yale University medical mission to interior China.

She came to the United States in 1919, at the age of 13, to study at the Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. She was a 1927 graduate of Vassar College, and received advanced training in psychiatric social work.

She met the man who became her first husband, Dr. Norman Freeman, two years after graduating from Vassal. When he finished his surgical training in Boston, they returned to his home town of Philadelphia, where Dr. Freeman was associate professor of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mrs. Freeman worked professionally as a therapist at the Marriage Council of Philadelphia while raising her four children.

After the Second World War, the Freeman family moved to the San Francisco area for 20 years, where Dr. Freeman became a noted vascular surgeon. He died there in 1975.

Mrs. Freeman returned to the Main Line in the mid-1960s and lived in Bryn Mawr for the next 20 years before moving to Waverly Heights. She started a human development program at the Baldwin School to teach students about alcohol, tobacco, drugs and sex.

At Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, she was active in creative writing and theological study groups. She was the author of a 1990 memoir, Reflections of a Childhood in China.

Ten years ago, she married her widowed brother-in-law, William W.K. Freeman, a retired statistician, teacher, and fellow of the U.S. Metric Association.

Besides her husband, she is survived by a son, David Freeman; daughters Nancy Horwitz, Corinne Barnwell and Margery Billings; 12 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

A funeral will be held at 2 p.m. today at the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, 625 Montgomery Ave. Burial will be private, before the funeral. A reception will follow at the home of David Freeman, 817 Loudan Lane in Newtown Square.

Memorial contributions may be sent to the Yale-China Association, Box 9514, New Haven, Conn. 06534.

Arrangements were made by the Huff and Lakjer Funeral Home in Lansdale.

I’m forwarding this request from Starla Anderson, in case someone on the list knows anything. Unfortunately the person who probably knows is TSFA founding member #27, Jack Hume, who has not joined groups.io and has an inactive email.

Hello, I’m trying to learn about the life of Charlotte Elizabeth Hume who lived from 1906 to 1994.  She is listed as one of the Saskett Family ancestors and I’m hoping that someone will know whether she was an artist - her name and birth/death years are on a card that I received from a relative in the States but there is no information about why her name is on the note and my niece doesn’t know either.   This is the information I found on Thurmon King’s Sackett Family Database:

 

Any help in learning about Charlotte’s life would be appreciated,

Complex Hardenbrook relationships #SimonColonist #ThomasElder

Ted Smith #55
 

Today I came across a complex set of relationships.

Eldon Carl Hardenbrook, a seventh-great-grandson of Simon Sackett "the Colonist," and Agnes Cornelia Spicer had five children, including Ona June (1910-1999) and Glen Alois (1920-2000).

Glen Hardenbrook married Mary Ella Ivers (b. c1939) on 6 May 1961 in Corvallis, Oregon. Mary is the daughter of Arthur August Ivers (1910-1980) and Bertha Margaret Eddy (1915-1968).

Ona June Hardenbrook first married Frederick Havey Rife (1896-1971) on 12 Dec 1945. Following his death, she married Arthur August Ivers on 25 August 1972.

The news article that describes Ona's second wedding indicates that Glen Hardenbrook [Ona's brother] served as best man and Mary Hadenbrook [Artur's daughter] was Matron of Honor.

This wedding effectively made Ona both sister and mother-in-law to Glen, step-mother and sister-in-law to Mary, and made Arthur father-in-law and brother-in-law to Glen. 


Re: Some Native American Sacketts

 

John Kay Sackett  is referred to as

1) Sackett - (The Book: Isable T. Kelly Southern Paiute Ethnographic Field Notes, 1932-1934 Las Vegas) 
2) John Kay  on Ancestry.com.

John Kay married to Kate "Hop toon". She is referred to as Kate Uptune on Ancestry.com on the death certificate listed in (Nevada Death Certificates, 1911-1965) of her daughter Beatrice Domingo her maiden name is Beatrice Sackett. (Error: Kenneth is listed as Beatrices father. Kenneth is Beatrice son and was born about 1925)

Kate is also referred to as

1) Opportune Kay on her death certificate  listed in (Nevada Death Certificates, 1911-1965)
2) Opertune on the 1930 US Federal Census Roll (Nevada, Nye, Tonopah, District 0020)
3) Kate Uptune on the death certificate (Nevada Death Certificates, 1911-1965) of her daughter Beatrice Domingo (Maiden Name: Beatrice Sackett)
4) Opotune (Las Vegas Moapa ) US Indian Census Rolls 1885-1940
5) Kate Padridge* on FamilySearch.org
6) Opputune Kay (Head Stone)

The 1910 US Census states that Opotune had 6 children by 1910 only 3 are living. I can only speculate some of the children were unaccounted.   

SIBLINGS

1) Thomas m. Lucy no known children (Not sure if Brother or Half Brother)
2) Mary m. John Gracy have children  (Half Sister)

CHILDREN

1) Eliza (Duck-mia-pots) Sackett
2) Harry James Sackett 
3) Beatrice Sackett  
4) Daisy Sackett m. Manuel Lopez (A article can be found in the Historical News Paper Collection (Tonopah, Nevada) the article is dated April 27, 1930 about Manuels death.)
5) Hazel Kay
6) Bessie Sackett

All six children had children of their own. Today their Grand Children to their 3rd great grandchildren live in various states through out the south west

Re: Another Native American connection #SimonColonist #ThomasElder

Elizabeth W Knowlton
 

Very interesting, as usual, Ted.  I have been living in Greensboro, NC, since last November and noted the NC locations. 
   Swain County is in the midst of the Great Smokey Mountains, Cherokee country.  These people are well-traveled, moving often between Connecticut, North Carolina, Nevada, and California.  I hope they will be put into the database because it is harder to follow them all in narration than in the database format.
    Thank you again for your work.


Another Native American connection #SimonColonist #ThomasElder

Ted Smith #55
 

This month, I found yet another connection between a Sackett line and Native Americans.

Clara Achsah Sackett (see https://www.sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I3435&tree=1 ), born 17 Jan 1861 in Washington, Litchfield County, Connecticut, is the daughter of Henry Eldred Sackett (1832-1868) and Rebecca Marilla Hine (1834-1880). Henry is a descendant of Simon “the Colonist” and Thomas “the Elder” Sackett. On 24 Jan 1882, Clara married William Sherman Pond, son of Rev. Gideon Douglas Pond (1838-1915) and Isabella Maria Winterworth (1842-1927). William was born 23 May 1862 in Mount Vernon, Westchester Co., New York and died 30 Jan 1898 in Washington, Litchfield County, Connecticut.


Clara and William Pond had four children: William Arthur (1883-1971), Ruth Marilla (1884-1965), Harold Sackett Sr. (1887-1875), and Rebecca (1893-1926).


On 6 Oct 1919, Rebecca Pond married George Allen Owl in Washington, Litchfield County, Connecticut. George was born 26 Dec 1895 in North Carolina to Lloyd Owl (1873-1911) and Nettie Harris (1875-1923). Lloyd, a famous baseball player in his day, was a member of the Cherokee tribe, and Nettie was a Catawba. Researchers note that the Catawba tribe was never recognized as a Native American tribe by the US government, so George almost always is recorded as being one-half Indian.


During World War I, George served in Company I of the 321st Infantry Regiment of the US Army. Inducted 4 Oct 1917, George was an athlete with “athletic prowess, natural leadership abilities, and advanced education.” His commanders took notice and promoted him to Corporal in February 1918 and Sergeant in July 1918. His North Carolina tribute web page at https://www.ncdcr.gov/blog/2017/04/20/portraits-war-george-allen-owl provides the following:

Around the first of August, the 321st disembarked for the European continent, arriving safely in England about ten days later. Advanced training with the French in quieter sectors of the warzone occupied much of the men’s time for the first few months they were in Europe. The Cherokee troopers proved particularly adept at scouting, and many attached to the 321st accepted their dangerous assignments with a coolness few could rival. White commanders gushed about the military bearing and aptitude of one man in particular: George Owl.

Company I’s captain, John Emerson, wrote that Owl was “without fear and has proven himself a very capable leader of men….” He concluded his assessment with the assertion that Owl was the best scout in his battalion. Praise for Owl came down from as high as his brigade commander, George Wilcox McIver, who singled the young man out in his autobiography: “[Owl] was soon promoted to be a sergeant and served well in that grade up to the end of the war…and was looked upon as a first-rate leader in scouting and patrol work….”

On November 10, the 321st was called to the frontlines northeast of Verdun, where they anxiously awaited the early morning’s signal to begin their first true “over the top” assault of the war. No one knew at the time that it would prove to be the war’s last.

The war’s final pitched battle began promptly at 6:00 AM on November 11, 1918. As part of the regiment’s Third Battalion, Company I advanced through an open marsh south of Grimacourt, facing frontal and oblique fire from German machine gunners. The company continued its advance until news of the Armistice swept swiftly down the line. All firing suddenly stopped at exactly 11:00 AM, an eerie silence replacing the rattle and boom of war that had permeated the field just seconds before. It was over. The Allies had triumphed.

Owl was discharged from the service shortly after the regiment’s return to the United States in June 1919. He went on to start a family and played professional baseball in Connecticut, North Carolina, and Florida. At the conclusion of his baseball career, Owl moved on to public service, serving in later life as tribal council chairman and as a member of the Executive Council of the National Congress of American Indians. Throughout his life, he was very active in reunion efforts for the veterans of the 81st Division.

As noted earlier, George married Rebecca Pond a few months after his discharge, and they had three children: George Allen Jr., b. 1 Aug 1920 in Greensboro, North Carolina; Rebecca, b. 27 Apr 1923 in North Carolina; and Hilary Paul, b. 5 Apr 1926 in Waterbury, Connecticut. One month later, on 25 May 1926, Rebecca Pond Owl died in Waterbury. She is buried in Washington Cemetery on the Green in Washington, Connecticut.


Although a 1933 Indian census indicates that George and his three children were living in Seymour, Connecticut, I suspect that they really were elsewhere. The 1930 census records indicate that George Jr. was living as a boarder in the home of Walter G. Merritt in New Fairfield, Connecticut; daughter Rebecca was living as Rebecca Pond, the adopted daughter of Harold Sackett Pond Sr., in Crary, North Dakota; and son Hilary was also living in Crary as Hilary P. Osborn, ward of Rev. William M. Osborn. By 1940, Rebecca and Hilary still were living with their adopted parents.

George Allen Owl Sr. married Winifred Clark on 31 Aug 1929 in Naugatuck, Connecticut. They had two children: Everett Wilfred (b. 9 Mar 1930 in Waterbury, CT; d. 2 Aug 2015) and Evelyn (b. c1932; d. 11 Sep 2021).


On 22 Nov 1942, The Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) reported that in Boston, Massachusetts, George Allen Owl had married Della Brunsteter, a linguist specializing in the Cherokee language, and that George had been collaborating with her in her research for some time. That article also stated that “Private Owl, a veteran of the first world war, enlisted in the army and is stationed at Camp Edwards, Mass. Prior to his assignment there, he instructed paratroop and commando troops at Camp Croft, N. C.”


George Allen Owl Sr. died 3 Sep 1978 in Swain County, North Carolina; he is buried in Yellow Hill Baptist Church Cemetery, Cherokee, Swain County, North Carolina ( https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/29250549 ).


Of the three children of Rebecca Pond and George Allen Owl, George Jr. went on to become an aeronautical designer and engineer; among other aircraft, he helped design Formula One air racers, the X-15, and the B-1 bomber. He married Marry Jean Radcliffe (b. 30 Jan 1922 in Illinois; d. 23 Feb 1983 in Los Angeles County); George Jr. died 18 Dec 1981 in Los Angeles County, California. Rebecca Owl Pond married Dr. Lowell Everett Boyum, M.D. (1921-2011); they had four children, two of whom probably are still living; following Lowell’s death, she married Anthony Allen; Rebecca died 6 Apr 2020. Hilary Paul Owl Osborn graduated with a college degree in graphic arts, owned several businesses, was executive director of the American Indian Travel Commission, helped lay the groundwork for Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, and was chairman for the Tribal Gaming Enterprise. He died 20 Mar 2009, leaving a wife, three daughters, one son, one foster son, two sisters (Rebecca and Evelyn), and his brother (Everett).


Re: Some Native American Sacketts

Ted Smith #55
 

I have found out a bit more about the Sackett who married Opotune, the Paiute woman described in my earlier message.

A Las Vegas Paiute genealogical researcher indicates that Opotune is the wife of John Kay Sackett. In some records, he is identified as John Sackett, and in others as John Kay. In any case, according to the researcher he was b c1872, with most records giving Nevada as his birth place.

In the 1900 census, he is identified as John Sacket, a male Indian, living in Lincoln County, Nevada, age not indicated, born in Nevada, with both parents born in Nevada, living with Susie Sacket and son James Sacket.

In the 1910 census, he is in Searchlight Township, Clark County, Nevada, identified as John Kay, age 38, Indian, married 3 years, born in Nevada, father born in Nevada, mother born in Arizona, married to Kate (Hep Toon) Kay, age 30, with daughters Duck (Miapots), age 2, and Kiddie, age 8 months.

The Las Vegas Paiute researcher indicates that John Kay Sacket died in 1915 in American Township, Allen County, Ohio, but when I asked what the source of that information was, he was unable to provide one. This raises the question, though, of why John would be in Ohio. Was he related to someone there, or was he perhaps traveling tor or from somewhere further east?

As one might suspect, records for the Paiute tribal areas are hit and miss. The Paiutes were rather nomadic, especially after Mexican slave traders started making annual forays into the area and Mormon and American immigrants began pushing the Paiutes off their lands and away from water sources. Measles and other diseases of whites also periodically devastated the native population. Nuwuvi: A southern Paiute history (available as a free PDF at https://collections.lib.utah.edu/ark:/87278/s6dr5qw2 ) describes the plight of the Paiute people, noting that they used to farm and camp in the Las Vegas area but had no land there after the whites took the area over. In 1911, a white woman, Helen J. Stewart, sold 10 acres of land on the northern edge of Las Vegas  to the US government stipulating that it be used "for all Indians in Southern Nevada."  A day school was built, and some Indians started living on the land. However, it had no water, no sanitation, no roads, and no street access. Most of the homes tended to be tents and brush shelters. A well was drilled sometime in the 1930s and the natives began growing some crops, but the well dried up in 1945.

Although the Indians did not want to move, the Bureau of Indian Affairs began discussing selling the 10 acres. By 1961, the Las Vegas Paiute property still had no water, no electricity, and no sanitation. Conditions began to improve by 1965 when telephones reached the property and 1970 when the Las Vegas band organized a government.

Today the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe has a website ( https://www.lvpaiutetribe.com/ ), and the image there shows the 10 acre parcel surrounded by urbanization. If one zooms in on that map, one will find Sackett Street, a spur off the main streets (Paiute Dr and Paiute Circle), leading to the Paiute cemetery in the northwestern corner of the property, where several Sacketts and descendants are buried.

Did you know that a descendant of Morton B. Sackett married a princess?

On 11 Nov 1950, William Henry Wambold, at the time military attache in Tehran, Iran, married Princess Guiti Afrouz Kadjar. The marriage was big news in the US, evidenced by the many news articles that appeared around the country.

William Wambold died 50 years later on 18 Nov 2000 (see https://www.sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I45630&tree=1 for his obituary and a family photo). Mrs. Wambold died in New York City on 14 July 2022. Her New York Times obituary is an interesting read: https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/nytimes/name/guity-wambold-obituary?id=36024313

Belcher, Sackett and Mead Family and Working Relationships in New York City, 1843-1878

Jon Eisenberg #770
 

Hello,

I recently completed and informally “published” a report concerning my wife’s second great-grandfather, Henry White Belcher, entitled "Belcher, Sackett and Mead Family and Working Relationships in New York City, 1843-1878.” 
 
The report concern individuals in this Sackett line (Line 3a, American):
 
Thomas Sackett the elder (say 1530–1595), labourer of St Peter in Thanet, Kent = Joane ___
Thomas Sackett the younger (c1557–1615), yeoman of Birchington, Kent = Martha Strowde
Simon Sackett the colonist (1595–1635), of Thanet, Kent, & Newtown (Cambridge), Massachusetts = Isabel Pearce
Simon Sackett (1630–1659), farmer of Springfield = Sarah Bloomfield
Captain Joseph Sackett (1656–1719) = Elizabeth Betts
Rev Richard Sackett AM (1686–1737) = Elizabeth Kirtland
Hon Nathaniel Sackett (1720–bef 1761) = Anne Bush
Justus Sackett (1740–1827) = Anna Lyon
Justus Sackett (1777–1854) = Clarissa Belcher*
Justus Ralph Sackett (1820–1885) = Mary Elizabeth Mead**
and his brother:
Amos Mead Sackett (1812-1869) = Sarah Elisabeth Adeline Mead*** 
 
Related:
 
*parents: Dr. Elisha Belcher (1757-1823) = Lydia Reynolds (1761-1850)
**parents: Jabez Mead (1777-1839) = Sarah Williams Knapp (1789-1847)
***parents: Staats (States) M. Mead (1791-1863) = Lydia Holmes (1796-1821)
 
The report discusses in detail both the family and working relationships of members of the Belcher, Sackett and Mead families in the wholesale grocery business in New York City, as well as a few other types of businesses in which they were involved. The business is described at one point as being the largest wholesale grocery business in North America, which was quite a surprising find for me. I initially believed they ran 2-3 local grocery stores together!

Some Native American Sacketts

Ted Smith #55
 
Edited

Several days ago, I happened upon records for another Sackett family where the father is unknown. This one is rather unique though.

The location is Clark County, Nevada. The mother appears in the annual censuses of Native Americans, usually as Opotune and once as Daisy Opotune. The earliest of the records include her name as part of the names of those in the family group, so Harry Sackett (her son) is listed as Opotune Sackett Harry.

Opotune was born about 1874 based on the census rolls. Harry's birth is listed as 1895 in some records and 1900 in others; Harry died in Reno in 1983. Opotune also had three Sackett daughters, Eliza (c1902-____), Beatrice (c1905-1964), and Daisy (1906-1981).

Tracing the children and their descendants has been somewhat challenging. First, it appears that some of Opotune's grandchildren were born out of wedlock; second, it appears that it was not unusual for marriages to last only a few years. It also is clear that poor diet and health caused the death of several infants until at least the 1930s. Usually the descendants were part of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe or the Moapa River Paiute Tribe, but for a few years, at least three of Opotune's children were living with an uncle in the Colorado River Reservation (which is mostly in Arizona but includes parts of California and Nevada and is home to four other tribes).

So far, from census, death, and a few marriage records plus many obituaries, I have been able to identify 49 Sacketts and descendants in this line. At least one other Sackett (Bessie, b. 1909, wife of James Hovietz) also is a member of the Moapa River Paiute Tribe and probably is related somehow to the family. I also have one census record for John and Susie Sacket and their son James (no ages recorded) in Searchlight, Nevada in 1900; that record says they are full-blood members of the Mojave Tribe (one of the four tribes on the Colorado River Reservation).

Although a few Sacketts made their way west through Nevada to California, sometimes staying in the Reno-Carson City area for a few years, I have been unable to find other Sacketts in southern Nevada from 1890-1910, so I have no idea who Opotune's spouse may have been.

Among the interesting descendants of Opotune is Leroy Spotted Eagle. Born Leroy Anderson, here is his obituary:
Leroy Spotted Eagle, age 61, died Wednesday, August 31, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was born January 30, 1950 in Las Vegas, Nevada to Raymond and Belinda Lopez Anderson. On February 9, 1971 he married Lucy Ibanez in Las Vegas.

Leroy grew up in Las Vegas, graduating from Rancho High School. He served in the US Marine Corps during Vietnam, then moved back to Las Vegas. He raised his family as part of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe, with the Moapa Paiute Tribe and later in Snow Mountain in the foothills of Mt. Charleston. He worked for 25 years with the Centel Telephone Company. He later worked as a Federal Police Officer. He enjoyed coaching youth football, and helped to start the Warrior Football Program in the Moapa Valley. He was a respected spiritual leader for the Paiute Nation.

Leroy's Find A Grave memorial is available at https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/197345615 and includes his photo in native garb. There are at least two oral histories for Leroy, one for the Veteran's project covers his time in the Vietnam War, and one for Nye County Oral Histories project covers his early life. One short passage indicates that his family lived in a "little shack" near Pahrump while his father worked on a nearby ranch. That page says, in part, 

LS: You know the ditch line that runs across the road there? Right up at the end of that ditch
line there was a little shack where we used to live.

RM: There were a bunch of other houses.

LS: No, this was the only one there because I remember there was nobody else living over
there. But on the other side over there was an Indian guy, Harry Sackett. He used to live across
there and his boys lived over there. We used to go over there all the time because they were
our relatives.

Today, Chris Spotted Eagle follows in his father's footsteps as spiritual leader of his tribe (see https://www.reviewjournal.com/life/las-vegas-paiute-boy-given-the-sacred-mantle-of-song-carrier/ to learn more about Chris and his son).  

Linda Rae Anderson, Leroy's sister, married Dennis Gene Douglas. Dennis's father, Freeland Edward Douglas, was Hodulgee (Wind Clan) from Nuyakv Tribal Town of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, from Oklahoma. His story includes very harsh treatment in Chilocco Indian School and describes how he and others from the school became Code Talkers in North Africa and Italy during World War II. [I was aware of the Navajo Code Talkers, but not aware of Code Talkers from other tribes and native languages.] Freeland Douglas later worked as a cryptographer for the US military during and after the Korean War. Dennis's sister, Suzan, has a Wikipedia page ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzan_Shown_Harjo ), "served as Congressional liaison for Indian affairs in the President Jimmy Carter administration and later as president of the National Council of American Indians . . . .On November 24, 2014, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States' highest civilian honor."


Re: William Knapp Mead (I6658) and Sarah Palmer Sackett (I6657)

I apparently replied solely to Elizabeth, not the group? (I'm new at this site ...) Correcting that now.

Unfortunately I do not have any more information at this time about Sarah P. Sackett and the land in Hamilton County. The family members referred to as "heirs" could be something other than children, although they appear to be the children, along with the widow Sarah. These are not the direct focus of my work at this time - they are side findings that I have passed along for preservation and for others to look at if/when it interests them.

I am working on a lengthy review of the family and working relationships of the Belchers, Sacketts and Meads in New York City in the 1800s. This had appeared to revolve around two separate but somehow related grocery businesses, which was manageable. But it has evolved into a much longer exploration of multi-state and even international ventures, some of which prospered and some of which did not seem to end well. Also, the interwoven family relationships are even more numerous than I had known. As I continue to research, the writeup is getting longer and longer. However, I am learning as I go along too, and finding more relatives (of my wife...), so that's helpful.
