  • Notes 
    • of Providence, R. I.

      Adnah Sackett was born in Southwick, Mass., and after receiving a common school education, went to Providence to learn the jewelry business. Soon after reaching his majority he began manufacturing jewelry on his own account, introducing machinery to a greater extent that it was being used by any other manufacturer of jewelry in the country. Politically he was a Democrat, and was the nominee of his party for the Mayor of Providence and Governor of Rhode Island. He was universally recognized and respected as a successful business man and public spirited citizen, filling with credit many responsible positions, both public and private, of influence and trust.

April 28, 1813, Westfield, son of Isaac Sackett and Elizabeth Shepard; he was First-Lieut. of 7th company, 3d Hampshire regt., (Lt.-Col. John Moseley), engaging April 26, 1776; his name appears among a list of officers chosen at that time; he kept the Inn at Westfield; Jerusha, d. April 20, 1791; he m.

      An order dated Feb. 21, 1777, signed by Henry Gardner, Treas. of the State of Mass. Bay, orders Adnah Sackett, as constable or collector of Westfield to collect taxes in the amount of 239 pounds, 18 shillings before the 1st of May. He owned a large farm, and took horses to Hartford and sold them. The Park Square in Westfield is now the ground where he kept his Green Inn, the location having, previous to him filling it up, been a frog-pond. His grandchildren called him Captain, and it is probable that he was in the Revolution in later campaigns than that of the spring of 1776, when he was chosen First Lieutenant.
