- X Ackley Sackett's 2nd wife was Edith Fetterly. They had a son, Butler Thomas Sackett, born 25 Apr 1912 in Newark, Essex, New Jersey. Evidently X Ackley and Edith separated following the birth of their son. In 1920 Edith was enumerated as Edith Sackett, married, in the household of her Aunt, Maria Fisher. It appears Edith Sackett was in a hospital for the insane in 1930.
Harry's son, Robert Sackett, says that following an appearance of X Ackley Sackett on October 18, 1913 in Frederick, Maryland "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."
"He traveled the country as a child with his father, Henry (X) Ackley Sackett. He appears in the clown suit at age eight in 1920 as a toy demonstrator. The outfit was made by X. Ackley himself. They were in Michigan in 1923 when they visited X. Ackley's cousins. Young Harry worked as a page boy at the Hotel Fresno in 1924/5 and there is a picture attached from that time. This is very much how Harry would have appeared when he is separated from his father a few months later in Portland, OR. Harry, at thirteen, was in the custody of the Public Welfare Bureau and the plan was for him to ship out with the Merchant Marine. As I understand it, a women at the Bureau saw some promise in Harry, and had a sister in Marshfield,OR whose married name was Anna Huggins. Henry and Anna Huggins take Harry in on what may have been a temporary basis. They write to X. Ackley's cousins to get their opinion of young Harry. They write back, from White Cloud, Michigan, March 23, 1926:
"We all thought Henry Ackley Sackett Jr. a bright, keen boy, whom his father dearly loved. He would be greatly relieved and pleased to know that his son has found friends and can have a good steady home and a chance for an education. I truly hope you will keep him and that he will appreciate his chance for a good life before him, and be worthy of your efforts to befriend him."
"Keep him they do. The Huggins appear in the 1930 Census, and seventeen year old Harry is listed as a lodger."
Following his graduation from high school, in 1934, Harry entered Walla Walla College in South East, Washington. The school is now Walla Walla University, a Seventh Adventist school. The school is located in College Place, Walla Walla, Washington.

During the time Harry was attending Walla Walla College, he wrote letters to Mrs. Huggins, calling her "Mother." During his time at the college, he was able to visit his father in the facility in Pendleton, Oregon.
Due to the hard times during the Great Depression, Harry left college before graduatiing and went to California where he worked at several different occupations. His letters to his "Mother" in Oregon continued, giving an account of his movements. Near the end of his time in California he was hired to drive a man on an extended journey throughout the western states. During that trip, Harry was able to visit his father in Pendleton for what was probably the last time he saw him.
