Oliver Green's "parents were Alva D. and Alzina T. (Sackett) Green, the father born in Broome county, New York, in 1835, and the mother in Chenango county, New York, in 1836. Alva Green was one of the prominent and respected farmers of his locality and followed this pursuit all his life up to his enlistment for service in the United States army. The attempts of the southern states to secede from the Union aroused Mr. Green's patriotism and in August, 1862, he enlisted in Company F. Eighth New York Volunteer Cavalry, with which company he served two and one-half years, being killed while on picket duty in February, 1864. He was married in January, 1856, to Miss Alzina T. Sackett, the daughter of Oliver and Esther (Wing) Sackett, the father a native of Massachusetts and the mother of New York state. ... To Alva and Alzina Green were born three children, namely: the subject of this sketch; Esther, born in 1858, is the wife of James Dickenson, who runs a boat on Crystal Lake; James W., born in 1859, married Ella Bedell and is a farmer in Forest Home township, Antrim county."

This is an article which appears in a book
concerning "tidbits" of Chenango County NY:

"Up the north branch of Crandall Brook lived a Mr.
Wing whose children were: Lewis, Samuel and Esther.
Also up this way lived Oliver Sackett, a Pensioner of
the War of 1812, after whom Sackett's Harbor is named.
He was only 14 when he was in the War and settled
here about 1834 with his wife, Esther Wing. Their 12
children were: James, L. A., Eliza, Elzina, Samuel,
Rachel, Mary, Charles W., Oliver B., John H., Jane and

Above Sackett's Harbor lived Harry Tyler, whose sons
were Rufus, Calvin and Canfield. Above him lived
Joseph Haines (who went to Allegany County) and Major
Chauncey Brown, whose sons were William, Jerry and

The GED of Polly Barnes on World Connect shows these two children for Oliver and Esther Sackett:
i. Mehittable Sackett was born 8 FEB 1828 in Greene, Chenango Co, New York.
ii. Benjamin Sackett was born 4 DEC 1828 in Greene, Chenango Co, New York.
The 1830 census shows no children in the household of Oliver Sackett. So, if they were born to Oliver and Esther, they must have died in infancy.

Prominent among the energetic, far- sighted and successful business men of Antrim county, Michigan, is the subject of this sketch. His life history most happily illustrates what may be attained by faithful and continued effort in carrying out an honest purpose. Integrity, activity and energy have been the crowning points in his career and have led to desirable and creditable success. His connection with agricultural and business interests has been of decided advantage to Antrim county, promoting its welfare along these various lines in no uncertain manner.

Oliver B. Sackett is a native of Chenango county, New York, where he was born on the 25th of May, 1844. He is the son of Oliver and Esther (Wing) Sackett, the father having been born in Massachusetts and the mother in New York state. Oliver Sackett, who was a soldier in the war of 1812, followed the dual pursuits of a miller and stone mason and spent nearly all of his years in the Empire state, where he died. He was the father of twelve children, of whom ten are now living. The subject of this sketch attended the common schools of his native state and succeeded in acquiring a fair and practical knowledge of the common branches taught in the common schools, which has been liberally supplemented through his subsequent years by habits of close reading and observation. In 1871 Mr. Sackett came to Antrim county, locating in Forest Home township and has lived in this section ever since. He has devoted a large share of his time to the butchering business and for a number of years ran a successful meat business at Elk Rapids. He also was employed about a year in a wagon factory at Traverse City, acquiring a good working knowledge of that business. Aside from these enterprises Mr. Sackett has devoted his main attention to agricultural pursuits, in which he has attained to a definite success. His home place comprises ten acres of land, of which all is under the plow, and in addition to cultivating the soil, he has found a profitable source of income in fruit raising. He has one hundred and four pear trees, one hundred plum trees, three hundred and twenty apple trees and thirty-five cherry trees and a large number of other fruit trees as well as several hundred berry bushes, all in good condition and bearing heavily. He has by dint of persistent industry and intelligent attention to the details of his business been enabled to realize a gratifying income from his operations. Mr. Sackett is a staunch and uncompromising Republican in his political attitude and has been honored by election to several public office.-, having served as constable of his township for four years, for six years as pathmaster and also as member of the school board. He takes a deep interest in the educational welfare of his township and has done all in his power to advance his community's best interests materially, morally and educationally. Religiously he is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and takes a deep interest in the departments of church work, having served for several years

as superintendent of the Sunday school and in other ways has contributed his time and means to advance the best interests of society. When Mr. Sackett first came to Michigan he did not possess a dollar and made his first money by cutting cord wood. From this humble position he has advanced step by step up the ladder of success and today no man in the township is more highly esteemed nor holds a more influential position among his fellow men than does Oliver B. Sackett.

In 1873 he was united in marriage to Miss Matilda M. Anderson, to which union were born four children, Lizzie, Alice, Andrew and Tillie. Mrs. Matilda Sackett died and the subject was subsequently married to Eva Abblett, this union being blessed by the birth of one child, Pearle Maude.

As a business man Mr. Sackett has been conspicuous among his associates, not only for his success, but for his reputation in fairness and honorable methods. In everything he has been eminently practical and this has been manifested not only in his business undertakings but also in social and private life. He was a member and corporal for seven years in the New York state militia, from which he has an honorable discharge.
Information for Oliver Benjamin Sackett, his wife and descendants is from the GED of Polly Barnes posted on RootsWeb's World Connect. -[Thurmon King]

W. S. Eggleston is a native of Broome county, New York, where he was born in 1869 and is the son of Lorenzo and Esther (Sackett) Eggleston. The subject's father was a native also of Broome county, New York, and was a mason by trade, remaining in his native state until 1878, when he came to Antrim county, settling in the woods of Forest Home township, where he bought forty acres of land and began the task of clearing a farm. He was the father of three children, the subject of this sketch being the eldest. The other children were Letta, the wife of Arthur Russell, who is working a band sawmill at Bellaire; and John, who remains at home engaged on his father's farm.

W. S. Eggleston was given the benefit of a fair common-school education, but his acquisition of knowledge did not cease with his school days, as he has all his life been a persistent reader, embracing a wide variety of topics, and has thus become a well informed and intelligent gentleman. He has pursued the occupation of farming and lumbering all his life and is today the owner of one hundred acres of as good land as can be found in Antrim county, fifty of which are under the plow and which were cleared entirely by Mr. Eggleston's own efforts. In addition to this property, he is the possessor of several town lots in Bellaire and one good residence. On his farm he raises all the crops common to this section of Michigan and has achieved a marked and definite success in his calling, a success which may be credited entirely to his own efforts, directed and controlled by wise judgment and keen discrimination. He gives some attention to live stock, raising grade cattle and Chester White hogs and has also an orchard of six acres, in which he raises some choice varieties of fruit. During the winter of 1903-4 Mr. Eggleston cleared the timber from section 23, this township, taking from it one and one-half million feet of timber, and has run a lumber camp for two years. He is energetic in all of his undertakings and his efforts have been rewarded with a due measure of success.

In politics Mr. Eggleston is a firm Republican and exerts much influence for the success of his party and has filled the position of overceer of district No. 5 of his township for many years, but aside from this he will not accept further political favors. Fraternally he is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and its auxiliary branch, the Daughters of Rebekah, and is also a member of the Knights of Maccabees at Bellaire and the Grange at Clam Lake, this state.

On the nth of August, 1903, Mr. Eggleston was united in the holy bonds of wedlock to Miss Josie Hill, daughter of Ruben and Eliza (Downs) Hill. To this union has been born one child, Ruben L.

Earnest labor, unabating perseverance and management and a laudable ambition- these are the elements which have brought Mr. Eggleston to prosperity. His career has ever been such as to warrant the trust and confidence of his acquaintances, for he has ever conducted all transactions according to the strictest principles of honor and integrity. Mr. and Mrs. Eggleston are active members of the Methodist Episcopal church in Bellaire.

68 "Early Owego" by L.W. Kingman

James McMaster was the second white man to settle permanently at Owego. He first came here as a soldier in Gen. Sullivan's army in 1779, and made his permanent settlement here in 1788, the year following the coming of the Drapers.

It is erroneously stated by judge Charles P. Avery in his "Susquehanna Valley" papers in the "St. Nicholas" magazine (page 303) that James McMaster's knowledge of the general character of the valley was acquired while a soldier in the army of Gen. Clenton on its way down the Susquehanna river to meet Gen. Sullivan's forces. This error has been copied in all the local histories since written.

At the time judge Avery wrote his papers the military records of this state had not been printed. McMaster had been dead thirty-five years and judge Avery's informatioin seems to have been obtained from some of his descendants whose knowledge was traditional and uncertain.

In "New York in the Revolution," a large waurto volume compiled from state records and published at Albany in 1879 by James A. Roberts, then Comptroller of this state, a full list of the officers and men of the various New York regiments, taken


from the records, was published. In 1898, a second and more complete edition of the book was published by Mr. Roberts.

On page 29 of the second edition is the roster of the Second New York regiment commanded by Col. Philip Van Cortlandt, and on page 35 James McMaster's name appears as a private in this regiment.

On page 342 of the book on the "Military Expedition of Major-General John Sullivan against the Six Nations of Indians in 1779," compiled by Frederick Cook, Secretary of State and published in 1887, are given lists of the regiments in both Clinton's and Sullivan's armies in this expedition, and the Second regiment is among those in the army of Sullivan. On page 327 of the same book a list of the officers of the Second regiment is also given.

It appears plain that McMaster was in Gen. Sullivan's army instead of Clinton's.

James McMaster was a farmer. When he came to Owego with Sullivan's army in the summer of 1779 the flat land east of the Owego creek seemed so desirable for farming purposes that he determined to settle here.

In 1784 he was living on a farm owned jointly by himself and his brother, David McMaster, in Florida, Montgomery county, about fourteen miles abouve Schenectady and a mile and a half from the Mohawk river. In April of that year he and another brother, Robert McMaster, in company with William Woods and John Nealy, and with William Taylor, a


boy of eight years old, who had been indentured to James McMaster as a "bound boy," started for Owego.

The previous winter a large boat had been obtained at Schenectady and taken thence to Canajoharie on the ice and from there to the bank of t he Ostego lake. There the boat was launched and a part of the party embarked with a wagon, provisions, plows, farming implements and cooking utensils, while another party went with fout horses by land, following the Indian trail to Owego. They met many parties of Indians on their way, who seemed peceably inclined, but met no white man.

They were fourteen days on their journey, arriving here in the first day of May, one party by boat down the river and the other by land. At night while on their way the boat was moored uniformly at some place on the river, previously appointed, and thus the whole party, as well for safety as for comfort, took their evening meals and passed their nights together.

On the flat west of what is now McMaster street there was but little forest, and the land had been cultivated some by the Indians. McMaster's party at once set fire to the dried grass, and burned over the entire surface of the ground, the falmes extending over the site of Owego and for a considerable distance beyond. They built a temporary cabin of pitch pine logs on the flat, about fifty rods above where


the elextric light plant now stands, which sheltered them until their corn planting was done on about ten acres in the vicinity of the present Talcott street.

After the planting was commpleted they erected a more s ubstantial log house near the bank of the river on the lot where the residence of George W. Thompson now stands, and this was the first building erected for permanent use by the hands og white men in this portion of the Susquehanna valley.

After the corn hoeing season was over the whole party returned with three of their horses and a quantity of beaver skins which they had received from the Indians in exchange for their fourth horse to the valley of the Mohawk, for the purpose of attending to their harvesting there. That having been accomplished they returned later and harvested their crop here, which had not been molested by the Indians, with whom they had established friendly relations. The crop was taken in boat loads to Tioga Point (Athens, Pa.) and securely cribbed, after which the party returned to the Mohawk valley for the winter.

In 1785, the year after the corn planting expedition, James McMaster returned to Owego. It was in June of that year that four agents of the Massachusetts purchase, a body of 230,400 acres of land lying between the Owebo creek and the Chenango river awarded to Massachusetts and since known as the Boston Purchase or Ten Townships, came here and found McMaster in possession. Mc-


Master claimed ownership of what was subsequently known as the McMaster half township, on which the village of Owego is now situated, by contract with the Indians, in which claim he was sustained by Amos Draper; and their influence was such with the Indians that in order to conciliate them and obtain possession the agents were compelled to satisfy McMaster's claim by giving him eighteen wquare miles of land extending from the Susquehanna river on the east side of the Owego creek eighteen miles north, and from the Owego creek on the north side of the river eastward, a distance of six miles. The particulars of this transaction are fully told in the "Susquehanna Valley" papers in the St. Nicholas magazine, page 301.

James McMaster did not settle permanently here until 1788. Then he and his family settled in a house which stood near where the main highway on the old Indian trail ran along the river bank at its intersection with the old Cayuga Lake trail which trail was identical with the present McMaster street and extended down to the river. This house faced the river and stood near where Michael A. Lynch's house now stands. The house was afterward occupied by Dr. Samuel Tinkahm and later by James Pumpelly.

The family of John McQuigg came the same year from Massachusetts.

The Lyman C. Draper, of Madison, Wis., secretary of the Wisconsin State historical society,


purchased in 1876 of the heirs of the late judge Avery the manuscripts containing interviews with early residents of southern New York relative to the Indian history, much of which was used in wreiting the Susquehanna Valley papers. In a letter to the editor of this paper written in October of the following year Mr. Draper wrote that he had been for some time collecting material for a new life of Brant, the Indian chief, and that the Avery papers had been purchased with others to aid him in that purpose, but that these papers did not contain much concerning Brant, but more of the local history of this region. After Mr. Draper's death the papers became a part of the manuscript collection of the Wisconsin historical society. The following is a list of the more important of them:

Mrs. Whitaker's account of her captivity among the Indians (1778.)
Dances and other Ceremonies of the Iroquois: character of the Indians.
Mrs. Whitaker's reminiscnses of Brant and other chiefs.
Memoirs of Sebastian Strope and his family.
Narrative of Abel Hart.
Narrative of Way-way alias Betsy Douglas.

Statements of the following pioneers (accounts of their own or their parent's adventures): Jesse McQuigg, John Gee, Mrs Caty Harris, Lawrence Merriman, Jonathan Terry, Elisha Forsyth.

Mrs. Caty Harris, mention in the last paragraph, was a daughter of James McMaster. The Avery interview with her was a very brief


one, and the following is a verbation copy of it, as copied from the original in the Wisconsin historical society's collection:

Statement of Mrs. Caty Harris.
June 8th, 1853
Maden name Caty McMaster, daughter of Jas. (patentee.)
Came to Owego when four or fiver years old with my father's family: Oldest brother Jas.
Next Jeremiah.
" David.
Oldest sister Jane Sackett, wife of Caleb H. Sackett.
Sister Elida McMaster. dead.
Sister, Caty McMaster.
Sister, Ann Fish, dead.

Robert McMaster was a brother of old James and moved on at same time with Jas. Je married a Bates, a sister of Elisha Bates. Thos. McM., another brother, came on afterwards.

Electa Draper (now Williams) first white child born at Owego. Amos Draper's family first white family at Owego.

Recollects the Indians used to be there in bands; had wigwams near her father's house. They were peaceable and friendly as could be.

My mother, Rachel died 30 years ago in Candor, my father died in Candor. They are buried on the farm now owned by Hiram Smith, not enclosed.

My father was a tall man, not fleshy, large boned, about six feet high. He paid the Indians for their land. He held the council with them near where his house was. (The particulars of this treaty have never transpired. C. P. A.)

I was born on the Mohawk. I have had 7 children.
These are my grandchildren. (Pointing to two boys.)
My father bult the house once occupied by Jas. Pumpelly.
The first house he built was near


the river and [pretty nearly back of the Pumpelly house.

I believe my father was in the army under Genl. Clinton and came down the river. In that way I think he must have been acquainted with the valley of the river.

At the time of this interview Mrs. Harris lived in the town of Cayuta, Schuyler county. It was from this interview that Judge Avery, probably, obtained the misinformation that Mcamster was in Clinton's army. James McMaster's wife's name was Rachel. their children were as follows:
James McMaster, Jr.
Jeremiah McMaster. He married Hannah Hill, a daughter of John Hill, one of the first settlers of the town of Tioga. He died at Spencer. His death followed tha amputation of his leg on account of a fever sor. His daughter, Eliza McMaster, married Leonard Jones, who came from Peekskill, N. Y., with his father, John Jones, and settled at Spencer between 1800 and 1805. John B. Jones, who lives in East Temple street, Owego, is a son of Leonard Jones.
David McMaster.
Jane McMaster. Married Col. Caleb H. Sackett and lived at Candor. She died near Almond, Allegany county.
Elida McMaster was unmarried. She died in 1843, aged 62 years. Her body was buried at West Candor.
Catherine McMaster. Married James Harris, a blacksmith, who was born in the North of Ireland. they lived near VanEtten, Che-


mung county. Both were buried at Spencer. She was 80 years old at the time of her death.
Ann McMaster. Married a man named Fish. It is said that she died at the county poor house.

James McMaster was a man of improvident habits, and altough the owner of property that with judicious management would have made him immensely wealthy, it gradually passed from his hands and he died thirty years after his settlement here in reduced circumstances.

One day in 1818, while living at Candor, where his daughter, Mrs. Sackett, lived, he borrowed a horse of a neighbor to ride to Spencer to visite one on his sons. He had gone but a short distance when the horse shied and he was thrown to the ground, breaking his ribs. He was taken into Selah Gridley's house, where he died a few days afterwards. His body was buried in the Caleb Sackett farm. the grave was plowed over many years ago. The farm was subsequently cut up into village lots and this grave was on the back part of the lot on which Mrs Alvah Fuller's house now stands.

86 "Perhaps the first Methodist Church ever built in Christian County was the one built by the Hopkinsville "Society" on the lot recently owned by the late Ben. O. Welch, east of Railroad Street, between Market and Broad. We have no reocrd of the date when this society was organized, but the history of the church in Kentucky and Christian County makes it pretty sure that it was very early in the nineteenth century; for as early as 1809 Rev. Samuel H. Thompson had charge of the Christian Circuit, of which Hopkinsville was the principal preaching place, ("Methodism in Kentucky, page 291), although the circuit is not mentioned in the general minutes of the church until 1811. The names of most if not all the ministers who had served this church prior to 1811 have already been given in the general remarks on the church in the county. In addition to these may be named Benjamin Harrison, Ezekiel Harrison, Jr., John Burgess, Joseph Williams, Henry Allen, RICHARD GAINES, James Nichols, Jesse Harrison (and perhaps Reuben and Robert Harrison, both of whom were prominent Methodists), Thomas Kirkman, and John Graham, all of whom were then laymen in the church. But little is known of these men except that they were eminently pious and useful in their day. Their very names meant the Methodism of the times, and their lives were bright examples of goodness and holiness, which exerteed an influence for good in the community for many years after they had passed away. Rev. Kirkman was in the ministry for a good many years and died near Hopkinsville about forty years ago. He was not a man of great ability, but was so beloved that his name is still held in reverence by men who never saw him. If we are not mistaken, the Hopkinsville Church still preserves with care an old-fashioned, straight-back chair with his name on it, used by the good old man two generations ago. From the best information obtainable, we gather that the church here must have duly organized, as we have said, soon after the year 1800, though there had been Methodist preaching here some years before, as shown in another place. We are satisfied that the old "meeting house" was immediately erected, if, in fact, it was not already there. It was a dilapidated old establishment, and there are men now living in Hopkinsville (1884) who remember the benches without backs, and the "cracks in the floor so large that the chickens could be seen scratching underneath". It was of brick, and here the church grew and prospered. Dr. Redford thinks the church had no place of worship until 1820, and the court house was used for that purpose, That they had no church building prior to 1820 can be only true from a legal point of view; and, as a matter of fact, the church had no legal title to their place of worship until the 21st of October, 1822, when George Kirkman, of Todd County, for $170 cash, conveyed the lot before referred to to PETER CARTWRIGHT, Benjamin Harrison, Ezekiel Harrison, Jr., John Burgess, Joseph Williams, Henry Allen, RICHARD GAINES, James Nichols, and Jesse Harrison in trust for the Hopkinsville Methodist Church. It is probable that the court house was used at times, but the old house was there years before. It was in this old meeting-house that the Tennessee Conference met in 1820, and the deed from Kirkman to the church described the lot as "containing a Methodist meeting-house now erected". Some have thought this old church was new, perhaps incomplete at the time of the conference of 1820; but a reference to the aforsaid deed, executed in October, 1822, will show the following stipulation: " In trust, that they shall erect and build, or cause to be erected and built thereon, a house or place of worship for the use of the members", etc ., and it is within the memory of some yet living, that according to this trust the church did very soon afterward, perhaps in 1828, repair and add to the old structure so as to perfect the building which was used by the church until the year 1848 or 1849. We may add here that, though the subject of parsonages had been frequently discussed by the church since 1820 (as the records show), occasionally houses rented for that purpose, and in 1833 the purchase of a parsonage for the Presiding Elder was ordered, it was not until the year 1838 that the committee was directed "to inquire into the expediency of purchasing a parsonage", and not until 1846 that the Hopkinsville Church really bought one. This was on the same lot with the old church, and was also of brick. It was sold, however, in 1848.
The following is a list of the preachers sent to the Christian Circuit (which included Hopkinsville) from 1810 to 1820, when Hopkinsville was cut o ff to itself and made a station: 1811, James Axley, Presiding Elder; PETER CARTWRIGHT, Circuit Preacher. The former of these was celebrated for his simplicity and meekness, the other for his great pugnacity. He was known and read of all men as the fighting preacher. Perhaps no man in the American pulpit since that day has been so noted for courage and audacity. His piety was not questioned, but his manner was extremely rude and sometimes unfortunate. Both were good preachers. From 1812 to 1816, PETER CARTWRI GHT, Presiding Elder; 1812, Jacob Turman, Circuit Preacher; 1814, John Johnson, Circuit Preacher. This last named gentleman enjoyed a great reputation as both a preacher and debater. It was in 1818 that the celebrated debates took place between him and Rev. Jeremiah Vardeman, a learned clergyman of the Baptist Church in Nashville and Hopkinsville. In these discussions, they both made fire and sparks fly until their reputations spread all over the country. In 1815, Claiborne Duval was the Preacher; 1816 to 1818, James Axley was again Presiding Elder; 1816 PETER CARTWRIGHT, Preache r; 1817, Benjamin Malone, Assistant, and John Devar, Circuit Preacher; 18 18 to 1821, Marcus Lindsey, Presiding Elder; 1818, John Cragg, Preacher; 1 819, PETER CARTWRIGHT, Assistant, and Martin Flint, Circuit Preacher.

In 1820, the conference cut Hopkinsville off from the circuit, and it remained what is called in Methodist parlance "a station" (as contra-distinguished from a circuit) until 1837. The following is a list of preachers on station and circuit until then: The first preacher to the new station was Rev. Andrew Monroe in 1820. The circuit had PETER CARTWRIGHT and William W. McReynolds; 1821 to 1825, Charles Holiday, Presiding Elder; 1821, Hopkinsville, John Johnson; Christian Circuit, Thomas A. Morris and RICHARD GAINES, Preachers. It needs not to be mentioned to the Methodist readers of this history that this was the great and good Bishop Morris; . . ." from, "Methodist Church in Hoipkinsville", in "County of Christian, Kentucky: Historical and Biographical", edited by William Henry Perrin.

"The honor of having grown and shipped from the county (Christian) the first hogshead of tobacco is claimed for several persons. Some claim that William Fagin and Abraham Shelton shipped the first hogshead from Eddyville on the Cumberland River to New Orleans. It was rigged up like an exaggerated sod roller, and drawn by a pair of oxen or stout horses all the way to the river. Others claim the honor for RICHARD GAINES, a brother-in-law of the famous pioneer Methodist preacher, PETER CARTWRIGHT, and the tradition runs that the experiment cost him "more than it come to", or in other words that he lost money on it." same source as above, page 138

The were surrounded with the comforts of life, and with kind hands to minister to their wants. Three years ago Mother Sackett was called away. Father Sackett was left until Feb. 9, 1880. He filled the offices of trustee, Sunday School Superintendent, class leader and steward, and had been a subscriber for the Central Christian Advocate ever since it had been a paper. He was a good man, spurning all comformity to the world, and seeking through earnest prayer and diligent study of God's Word, to become an Israelite indeed, and his efforts were rewarded with a rich and happy experience. His last words were; "Christ is all my hope." A large concourse of friends and relatives followed him to his last resting place. The funeral sermon was preached by the writer, from Matt. 25:21. - James M. Payne"

Samuel SACKETT, an old resident of this city, and the father of Messrs. A. M. and Reuben SACKETT, died at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Baz. CAMPBELL, at Twin Springs, Kansas, on last Tuesday, at the advanced age of nearly eighty-three years. Father Sackett was born near Cincinnati on the first of September, 1797, and about fifty years ago came to Illinois to seek a home in the new West. Thirty years ago he came to Clinton and engaged in the drug business. In his younger days he had given some attention to the study of medicine, and this reading had given him a taste for the drug trade. For a time he was in partnership with Drs. GOODBRAKE and T. K. EDMISTON. Dr. Goodbrake sold to the other partners his interest, and then came the fire on the north side of the square, where now stands the Magill block, and swept away in a short time the savings of years. The drug store was insured, but Edmiston and Sackett never got a dollar as the company was worthless. Father Sackett was in debt and without a dollar, as the fire had consumed everything, when his son Alfred, who was in business at Galena, came to the rescue and paid off his father's debts and helped him to a new start in life. Father Sackett then began business on his own account, and a few years after sold out and retired. Old age began to tell on Father Sackett and his wife, and four years ago or more they went to Kansas to live with their daughter, Mrs. Baz. Campbell, hoping that a change of climate would smooth their declining years. Three years ago, the 14th of last month, Mother Sackett died. Her aged partner tarried but a few years longer when he, too, passed from time into eternity. Father and Mother Sackett were members of the M. E. Church in this city, and in their early days were active workers for their Master. Mr. and Mrs. Reuben SACKETT left for Kansas on Tuesday evening to attend the funeral.

93 "Sometimes in doing research, you find some odd stories. This one is about Dr. Callihan. I had always heard that he drank excessively, and that his wife went with him on calls, to assist him. When I moved back to Clark County I was talking with my 2d cousin, Dorothy Jean Sisson _____. She is older than I am and remembers back farther than I do. She confirmed that the doctor was indeed known as a "drinker." She said he had delivered her when she was born. It was not until after she was married, that she had need of her birth certificate, and lo and behold, the doctor had named her Nora Callahan Sisson. Nora was her mother's name, and of course Callihan was his name. So she had to have her name changed legally because of his error. ... But all in all he was a much loved doctor. I checked my birth certificate after she told me that, but he had mine right, thank goodness." - [Mary Jo] Callihan, Dr. Richard G. (I22361)

95 "Story of the Old Homestead at Norfolk" by Laura S. Shepard [Chapman Notes]:

The old homestead was a very comfortable, pretty gothic house near the Racquette River and near the village of Norfolk, St. Lawrence Co., New York. There was a pretty little stone Episcopal Church there and Aunt Charlotte (Charlotte Sara), father's sister, was a very devoted attendant there, doing much to help it along and at one time the clergyman lived with her, a Rev. Mr. Hanson. He used to have many of the clergy visit him, one in particular, who was a missionary in charge of the Indian settlements of TS. Regis, near there. He was a tall, dark, interesting man and my aunt became very fond of him and liked to have him come. She said she never saw any one with such courtly manners, seemingly inborn, for he had been brought up by the Indians and couldn't have acquired them from them. [She goes on to explain that this man was supposedly the lost Dauphin of France - the son of Marie Antoinette; after some "proof" was found of this story, she and many of the others were convinced of this.]

However, the probate papers for the will of Daniel Sackett of Troy, Rensselaer County, New York and the Diary of George Holcomb of Rensselaer County show that Daniel Sackett of Troy was the son of Benjamin and Phebe.

Daniel Sackett of Troy died at Troy on 15 April, 1845; age 58. Although Daniel's will named only his wife, Sarah as an heir, the "Surrogate did then and there issue a Citation to the widow and heirs at law and next of kin of Daniel Sackett, deceased"(1), as follows:
* Sarah Sackett, Troy

January 1821

22 - ... I fetched a bundle to Benjamin Sackett Jnr from his brother Daniel in Troy...
February in 1825
5 - ... I fetched two bags of buckwheat flour for Daniel Sackett to his Brother Benj and he gave me a pitcher .
[The last two entries show that Daniel of Troy was a brother to Benjamin Sackett, Jr. which means that Daniel Sackett who married Abigail Smith, and lived in Ashtabula Twp., Jefferson Co., OH for the 1850 census, was not the son of Capt. Benjamin and Phebe Davis Sackett. At this time (March, 2010) we have no clue who the parents of this Daniel Sackett were. - Thurmon King]

100 "The Yuma Daily Sun", Yuma, Arizona:

Two Yuma dove hunters were shot to death Saturday by Deputy Sheriff Dale Wantland who was called to investigate reports they were shooting too close to a ranch house.

Dead are John Elbert Sackett, 49, and his son, Bobby Jean, 29.

A Coroner's jury called on the spot ruled Youma County Deputy Wantland shot the two men in self defense.

Wantland was called to the Fairview ranch, 25 miles east of Yuma, by ranch coowner S. J. Irvine. He said the two men were shooting within 20 yards of a ranch house, endangering a child and livestock.

The deputy said that when he asked the men to move they started to argue and the younger one started to raise his .20 gauge shotgun. Wantland said that as he took hold of the son's gun, the elder Sackett leveled his .12 gauge shotgun at his back.

Wantland dres his .38 caliber revolver, turned and fired, dropping the father. Then, the deputy said, he shot the younger amn when he raise his shotgun again.

Six shots were fired by the deputy. Neither of the Sacketts fired but both guns were loaded and one was cocked.

Both Irvine and ranch forman Juan Orozco witnessed the shooting and testified it was self defense."

"The Yuma Daily Sun", Yuma, Arizona:

Sheriff's Deputy Dale Wantland answered what he thought to be a routine call Saturday involving two dove hunters shooting on private property.

Moments later the hunters were dead.

Wantland, father of five and veteran of 12 years with the sheriff's department, arrived at the S. A. Irvine ranch and found the two men shooting doves in the trees near the ranch house.

Wantland politely asked the hunters, John Elbert Sackett, 49, and his son Bobbi J. Sackett, 29, to move off the property.

The deputy said the men became argumentative and asked, "What authority do you have to tell us to move off?"

Wantland said he pointed to his badge and again asked them to leave.

He said the elder Sackett them moved around behind him and pressed his shotgun into the deputy's back. The younger man pointed his shotgun at him from the front.

Wantland said one of them then shouted, "Get him."

The deputy said he pushed the younger man's gun barrel asid and whirled on the elder Sackett, drawing his gun and firing. As the older man dropped he turned and opened fire on the son.

Both men were killed.

A coroner's jury assembled later at the scene of the killing ruled Wantland had fired in self defense.

Sheriff Lee Echols said: "I was an unfortuante thing but we feel the deputy was completeldy justified."

Echols said both victims had been drinking.

Both of the victims' shotguns were loaded and the father's was cocked."
