Re: Sackett Hill Road, Warren, Connecticut

Ellen Paul, curator of the Warren Historical Society, would have any known details about the house. She is the person who took our group there in 2012. 

According to wills, the house passed down to Jonathon’s sone Justus (1730-1815) and then to Justus’ son Homer (1765-1853). It probably then passed down to Homer’s son Homer (1801-1871) as both his parents were living with him in 1850. I could not locate a will for Homer (1801-1871) in the Litchfield Probate Court.

Hello,
My name is Natalie Feigenbaum and my son and daughter-in-law (David and Dana Feigenbaum) recently purchased a home at 52 Sackett Hill Road in Warren, Connecticut, 06754, United States.  They understand that the house was built by the Sackett family in 1740.

Have you any information about who originally lived in the home and if it was built in 1740 as they have been told?  Any other information about the house and the Sackett family as related to the house would be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any information you can supply.

Sincerely,

Here are the three photos I took of the Sackett House on Sackett Hill Road. I wonder how much was the original. The house was occupied at that time by a family who traveled back and forth from wherever via helicopter. Warren was a popular place then for folks from New York City.

Re: Grant and Ethel Sackett obituary and details 1952

Ted Smith #55
 

We do not know very much about Grant Talbot Sackett. Here is a summary of what I have been able to find out.

He was born 26 Jun 1914 in Keene, Cheshire County, New  Hampshire, the son of Charles Albert Sackett (1882-1931) and Clara G. Alpen (1882-1969). Based on census records, he probably was an only child. In 1920, his father was a railroad storekeeper in West Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1930, his father was a railroad inspector in Agawam, Massachusetts.

By 1938, Grant had married and was living with his wife, Mary Agnes (surname unknown at this time) in West Springfield. Their occupations were listed as nurseryman and nursery office worker, respectively. Sometime in late 1939 or early 1940, they relocated to Agawam, where, according to his military draft registration, Grant worked at Agawam Woolen Company. We do not know what happened to Mabel and Grant during the 1940s, and I and it does not appear that he served in the military in World War II.

Grant next appears in the records when he married Ethel Delores Murphy on 9 Aug 1950 in Babylon, New York. National cemetery records indicate that Ethel was a nurse (Lt. Jg.) in the US Navy Reserves from 1943-1946. Grant’s mother, Clara, is identified as next of kin on that cemetery document.

Of the death, we have the following:

The Post-Standard (Syracuse, New York), 25 Mar 1952, Tue, Page 1

Bodies of 3 Men, Woman, Recovered

AMITYVILLE, March 24. (AP) -The bodies of three men and woman, drowned when two small sailboats capsized, were recovered today from Great South Bay.

The dead, all employes (sic) of the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corp., of Farmingdale, were identified as:

Mrs. Ethel Sackett, 33, Lindnurst, a nurse at the plant; her husband, Grant T. Sackett, 35, head of quality control of the stratos division; George DeScheppcr, a junior administration engineer of guided missiles, Babylon; and Edwin L. Anning, layout draftsman of missiles, Babylon.

Search for the missing boats began early today by the Coast Guard when Mrs. Anning them reported overdue. The four persons had put out in the two 15-foot boats Sunday.

New York death records for both Grant and Ethel record the locations as Babylon, New York.

Note that I have not found any indication that Grant had any children.

Documentation can be found at https://www.sackett-tree.org/admin_editperson.php?personID=I49141&tree=1&cw=1 . His Find a Grave record is at https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/77358896

Ethel was born 30 Dec 1918 in Brooklyn, New York, and died 23 Mar 1952. She also was interred 27 Mar 1952. Her next of kin is identified as Mr. Walter H. Murphy, 75 Rose Ave., Floral Park, New York. Based on census records, Walter is her father.

Census records for Ethel and her family indicate that they lived in Brooklyn in 1920, Danbury, Connecticut in 1930, the Bronx in 1935, and Brooklyn in 1940. She had several siblings, all of whom have died.

You can access Ethel's documentation via links from her husband's records above. The only relatives who might be alive and who might no something more about her would be children of her Murphy siblings.

Of course, new records are constantly being added to various online databases, so you might find something more about them in the future.

Civil War Sacketts

Danielle Otey #220
 

Hi to my extended family!
I just got updated DNA results from 23&Me and now am curious about my Civil War connections. Up until now I've focused on Revolutionary era ancestors. 

Dudley Sackett was my direct Sackett ancestor, his brother Chauncey died serving. He was just a kid too. 

Anyway,  that's a dead end so I think it was a family that married into the Sacketts. I tried the Scroggs but they lived in Ohio. 

What I'm looking for specifically is an ancestor that was a southerner and had a plantation. So far all the ancestors I've found were northerners. I suppose there's border states between north and south but interracial marriage didn't really happen during that era,  it would be seriously frowned upon. There's evidence I have  African blood that dates to around there Civil War era, possibly earlier.  

I'm fairly certain it's my dad's side,  not my mom's, because my daughter's tests showed the same genes but my maternal connections don't show that gene in their results. 

Any leads? Ideas?

Two Sarah Sackets b 1752 & 1758 #SimonColonist #ThomasElder

Ted Smith #55
 

Earlier today Walt Pettis sent me a message that triggered some digging. It concerned Sarah Sacket, daughter of Eliakim Sacket and Bathesda Fowler of Westfield, Massachusetts.

Weygant (p. 49) indicates that Sarah, b. 29 Aug 1758, daughter of Eilakim,  married Elna Hoyt. Thurmon King had also entered that she married a Mr. Weller but did not cite a source for that marriage. Thurmon did cite a source for Elna and Sarah's marriage that took some digging to find.

A quick search for Sarah on Ancestry.com found a Find A Grave memorial for Sarah Sackett Weller (b. 1756, d. 18 Jun 1812, buried in Pittsfield Cemetery, Pittsfield, Massachusetts; see https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/140953541 . Her husband is Justus Weller who died in 1810.

Looking in the Sackett-Tree database, there are four Sarah Sacket/Sackett entries born around this same period:
  • Sarah, daughter of Zebulon & Lucy Root Sacket was b. 6 Sep 1762 in Sheffield, Mass.
  • Sarah, daughter of Eliakim & Bathesda Fowler Sacket was b. 1758 in Westfield, Mass.
  • Sarah, daughter of Seth & Elisabeth Winchell Sacket was b. 1759 in Westfield, New York. Married Ebenzer Sedgwick. Sarah died 1841.
  • Sarah, daughter of Joseph & Sarah Vansant Sackett was b. c1756 in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania. Sarah died 1826 in Pennsylvania.
Looking at the records involving Sarah Sacket/Sackett, Elna Hoyt/Hayt, and Justus Weller, I found a birth record for Sarah (b. 29 Aug 1758 in Westfield to Eliakim and Bathesda, as expected) but no marriage of a Sarah Sacket to Elna Hoyt/Hart. Instead I found records an  Elna Hoyt/Hayt that married Eliza Piers or Parris in 1814 in Petersham and for a different Elna Hoyt, age 47, who died in 1808 in Roxbury, Massachusetts, but there is no record of any marriage for either of them to any Sacket/Sackett in Massachusetts.

However, I did find a record for a Massachusetts marriage of a Sarah Sacket to Justus Weller:

Massachusetts, Town & Vital Records, 1620-1988, (Ancestry.com) (Reliability: 3), 3 May 2020.
Name: Justus Weller
Event Type: Marriage
Marriage Date: 11 Aug 1776
Marriage Place: Westfield, Massachusetts
Spouse Name: Sarah Sacket

Transcribed from image:

     Justus Weller [illegible word] Sarah Sackett both of Westfield had their names [illegible phrase] of their intention of marriage and publication. There on [illegible word] August 11, 1776.

     Justus Weller & Sarah Sackett were married Aug. 1776.

     Justus Weller son of Justus and Sarah Weller was born Nov. 5, 1776.

The record for the marriage of Sarah Sackett that married Elna Hayt is found in "Names of persons for whom marriage licenses were issued by the secretary of the province of New York, previous to 1784. Printed by order of Gideon J. Tucker, secretary of state. 1860. Albany, Weed, Parsons and company. pp. 334:

1780, Oct. 12. Sacket, Sarah, and Elna Hayt, Marriage Bonds, v. XXX, p. 63.

So it seems that there are two Sarah Sackets: One married Elna Hayt and one married Justus Weller. Of course Weygant did not cite his source, and none of these marriage records give names of parents, so we cannot be certain which Sarah really is which. But the fact that the daughter of Eliakim was born in Westfield and that one of the two marriages occurred in Westfield raises some doubt about whether the daughter of Eliakim really married Elna Hayt.

The subject of this sketch was taken ill some weeks ago in New York City. His son, Guy Sackett of this city, was called and it was thought for some time that he would recover but, last week he began to rapidly fail. The end came Friday, May 29th.

Remains were brought to Marion. The funeral was from the home Monday at 2:30 p. m. Rev. Wareham of Wichita, an old friend of the family, officiated. The male quartette (sic) furnished the music.

Mr. Sacket was born at Rome, Indiana, February 5, 1849. When only a boy he went with his parents to Luray, Mo., where he spent the early part of his life. He was educated in a seminary at St. Francissville (sic), Mo., and was afterwards an instructor in the game school. He was later elected sheriff of Clark Co , Mo., and afterwards county clerk of the same county, which office he held for eight years. He left Clark Co., Mo., September 1st, 1883 for Marion, Kas., which place has been his home ever since.

He leaves a wife, four daughters, Mrs. J. T, Dickerson of Edmund, Okla., Mrs. Anna Blackburn and Mrs. Helen Miesse of Marion, Mrs. E. M. Cherington of St. Joseph, Mo., and one son, Mr. Guy Sackett of Marion, thirteen grand children (sic) and a sister, Mrs. Oscar Roland of Luray, Mo.

Interment was made in Highland Cemetery.

When Mr. Sacketl (sic) came to Marion he was associated with Mr. W. W. Loveless in the general mercantile business. By his courteous, obliging, manner to his patrons and his optomistic (sic) disposition he made friends. We believe that everybody in Marion regretted to have him severer (sic) his business relations with Marion. The family have the sympathy of the entire community.

Note: The Sacket surname is misspelled several times in the obituary.
