  • Notes 
    • By Robert Sackett:
      Sometime around 1911, apparently still handsome and charming at the age of fifty, Henry becomes involved with a younger women, which we can now see is a pattern of behavior. On April 25th, 1912, Edith Fetterly of Pennslyvainia gives birth to a child who, at the time, is named Butler Thomas Sackett. There is some indication that she and Henry married.

      From the Daily News, Fredrick, Maryland, Saturday, October 18, 1913
      Silhouette Artist Here A Silhouette artist will be in Frederick during the Fair. Henry Ackley Sackett, who has been making silhouettes for nearly half a century, has arrived here and will be on the grounds next week. He will also have headquarters at Williamson's drugstore.

      I believe it is not long after this that Edith and Henry part ways . Henry came home to find their child on the bed next to a bottle of sleeping pills, and Edith was not there. My guess is she probably went back home to Pennsylvania where her uncle and aunt lived. In her defense, I think it is safe to say that Henry was not an easy man to settle down with. Ironic that Henry, who probably left a spouse to raise children on her own, is left with a child to raise on his own.
      I speculate that Henry and his child then go back to Michigan for a time, where he still has friends and relatives. On December 3, 1914, the Rev. George P.T Sargent at the Grace Episcopal Church of Grand Rapids, baptizes the child with the name Henry Ackley Sackett Jr. His father would always call him "Buddy." We know him better as "Harry."
