  • Notes 
    • She was the ninth child of Frederick Plummer Sackett and his wife, Susan Earl Sacktt. She was born May 6, 1887. She was raised on the family farm near Gobles, Michigan. She attended the community school where she was a very good student and demonstrated outstanding musical ability, playing the violin and the accordion. She also was an expert horsewoman. In later years she continued to ride and participated in the women's relay races in the Calgary Stampede, for example.

      She married Aiva Adina Coldsnow on December 24, 1906. He was the son of Frank Elmer Coldsnow and his wife, Eliza Jane Gilbert Coldsnow. 'Tizzy" Pearl and Alva settled on a homestead in Western Canada about 1910 near the town of Coutts. Between 1910 and 1918.this was their home. Due to drought conditions they prospered only intermittently. They built a house and outbuildings and they proved up on the homestead. Alva's trade as a steam engineer made it possible for him to obtain work on neighboring farms that used large steam units for power. He also worked in the smelter at Trail and in lumber mills in the Nelson area. Thus his family had a good standard of living even through the worst drought in memory. However, he did have to spend long periods away from home and worried about leaving his family on the prairie even though they had good neighbors, and Pearl was fretful and lonely at times. So from time to time Alva sent the family back to Michigan where they could visit the Sacketts and the Coldsnows. In 1914, the whole family came south to visit the Earl Sacketts near the town of Orient, Washington. Earl, at that time, had a sawmill, a grain threshing outfit and a dairy farm so Alva found plenty to do there. Mildred attended local school with the Sackett children. Twins, Stanley and Stella, were born to Pearl during that 1914, winter. The next spring they returned to their home at Coutts, Canada, where their affairs moved on as usual.
      In the spring of 1918, the family was on the farm and Alva was working away from home. There were four children in the family now. Pearl was pregnant again and was not feeling well. She wrote to Alva to come home. They were preparing to meet him at the train depot when Pearl became desperately ill. She died in July, 1918. After the funeral Frank Sackett had her body sent to Michigan where it was buried in the Earl Cemetery in Pine Grove Township. Logan Sackett, who had homesteaded near Wolfpoint, Montana, drove to Coutts and took the children home with him where they remained for nearly a year. Later, because of the severe Montana winters, they were sent to Alva's parents in Michigan. - [Andrew P. Sackett, p. 134]
      ------
      On February, 27, 1914, a son, James Earl Sackett, Jr. was born at the house on Hungry Hill. Also, Pearl Sackett Coldsnow and her husband, Alva Coidsnow, who had homesteaded in Canada, came down to find work and lived with Nettie and her family during the winter with their six year old daughter, Mildred. Eleven days after Jimmy was born, Pearl was delivered of twins, Stanley and Stella. Nettie fed them~at breast along with her own baby and also fed them with a medicine dropper when they wouldn't nurse, until they were well under way. - [Andrew P. Sackett, p. 101]
