      Hugh Rosboro Sackett, son of William C. Sackett and Parmelia (Eberhart) Sackett, was born in New Geneva, Pa., March 12, 1860. Receiving his preparatory education in the common schools he later attended the Old Georges Creek Academy.

      Beginning his business career at the age of fourteen he worked for six years on the Monongahela and Ohio Rivers and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, running from Cumberland, Md., to Alexandria, Va. He later went to Pittsburgh, Pa., and worked in mills and on street cars.

      About 1882 he entered the saw mill and lumber business and remained actively identified with his various interests until 1890 when he took up the business of dealing in cattle and followed same for a period of ten years.

      In 1900 he entered into business relationship with W. W. Parshall of Uniontown, Pa., which partnership built the H. R. Sackett Coal & Coke Company works near Outcrop, Pa., which he is still operating. In 1904 the same partnership purchased the Dr. Baton farm and part of the Joseph Burchinal farm, located in Fayette County and formed the Sackett Coal & Coke Co., building what is known as the Crystal works which was operated until 1911 when it was sold together with the Madison coke plant, same having been purchased in Westmoreland County. In 1917 the partnership consisting of Mr. Sackett and Mr. Parshall purchased 150 acres of coal from the Rich Hill Coke Company of Uniontown and organized the Harah Coal & Coke Company. An operation was built on these holdings which is active at the present time.

      On October 30, 1879, Mr. Sackett married Miss Annie N. Vance and they have two sons and two daughters: Alexander A., Harry C., Goldie Lea, wife of W. H. Ramsey of Fairchance, Pa., and Laura A., wife of Dr. A. R. Kramer of Uniontown, Pa. His residence address is Smithfield, Pa.
