    • of Seneca Falls, N. Y.

      Judge Sackett studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced his profession in Central New York. He was a far-sighted and successful business man. It is stated in French's Gazetteer of New York, that he was among the founders of Seneca Falls, that about 1829-30, he erected a cotton factory there, and at same time was associated with Chauncey Marshall and O. Bascum in the erection of a paper mill. He also dealt largely in farm lands, buying in large tracts, which he divided into farms and sold to new comers. In a letter, written in 1833, to a relative, he refers to the sale of several farms which he had put under partial cultivation, and adds: "I have retained 200 acres and have been employed the last season building a dwelling house, in which I hope to spend the remainder of my days. It is situated about half way between my old home and the village. It is built entirely of cut stone, is 40 by 45 feet on the ground floor and two stories high, with walls grouted with water lime. It has cost me, with the out buildings, a little more than six thousand dollars." Judge Sackett took a lively interest in the history of his family, and in the Fall of 1830 traveled for a month in New England examining the ancient church, town, and county records for data relating to his ancestors - tracing them from Warren, Litchfield County, Conn., back from generation to generation, and from town to town to the arrival of Simon and John Sackett, at Boston, in 1631. The writer has before him the original manuscript of one of Judge Sackett's early records of this journey and his conclusions as to his ancestral line, based on the information he then secured. Along with this original manuscript family record is the copy of another written by him a quarter of a century later. The following references to the members of his immediate family are from the manuscript record first mentioned, which was written at Seneca Falls in 1833:

      "My father and mother are both living in this village, and are as healthy and smart as when you last saw them. He is 80 and she is 66 years of age. The four children which father had by his first wife are all dead.

      "Russell, my eldest brother, died in 1824, leaving a widow and six children. They are in easy circumstances and reside on a small farm at Aurelius, which he left them.

      "Eunice, my sister, who married, in 1809, a Mr. Higgins, is now a widow and the mother of nine children. She is 45 years old and is residing in this village with her oldest son, who is a hardware merchant and is doing well.

      "I come next in point of age, am 43 years old and have had two wives. My first wife, Nancy T. Vance, died in 1820, leaving me one daughter and two sons. The daughter is married to a Mr. Van Rensselaer, of this place. My oldest son died in 1831, the other is living with me and is now at school. My second wife is an English woman, by whom I have one son five years of age.

      "Jonathan, my brother, is a small merchant in this place, but well off in his circumstances. He is only 41, and consequently too young to have a wife.

      "Matilda, my second sister, lives with her parents, has a small but pretty property of her own, is a candidate for matrimony but is yet too young; aged 37 years.

      "Ann married a Mr. Gilmore and lives in Aurelius, has an excellent husband in good circumstances, and is the mother of four children. They are all in good health and every way a happy family. She is 35 years old.

      "Caroline married a Mr. Halsey, a mechanic, of this village, who is in tolerable circumstances and good looking. She has 4 children and is 33 years of age.

      "Amanda lives with her parents and is 30 years of age.

      "Fanny lives with her parents, is 27 years old, is mother's beauty, and it is believed by all her friends that when she arrives at an age suitable to see company there will be no more peace among the aspiring beaux of the neighborhood.

      "William, my youngest brother, is studying law and promises fair to be a man of business. He takes his admission next July. He is 22 years of age."

      A Seneca Falls Historical Society publication, issued in 1905 contains a paper by Miss Janet Cowing, showing the important part taken by Judge Sackett in the founding of Seneca Falls, and containing many additional and interesting facts relative to his social business and political career. - [Weygant, pgs 240-242]
