Samuel F. Sackett
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.
