  • Notes 
    • of Hopewell, NJ., Williamsport, MD., and Cumberland County, Penn. - [Weygant, ]
      ------
      Alternate Birth location: Long Island City, Queens, New York, USA
      ------
      Weygant places Thomas as the only son of W #22-Simon and Mary McCaw/McGraw Sackett. Recent research by Lynn Tinsley has proven this to be an error. An abstraction of Simon's will lists only a son named Joseph and an unborn child.
      Will dated January 1717 at Hopewell, New Jersey proved March 17, 1717 names wife Mary, son Joseph, "child my wife now goeth withal" if it be a son to share evenly with Joseph, if a daughter, Joseph to pay her 50 when 21.
      If either die before coming of age, the survivor to possess all that the other is to get, if both die before coming of age, "my brothers and sisters" to have all, equally divided except that the "children of my sister Elizabeth" shall have between them one portion.

      Following W #22-Simon's death his son, Joseph, granted Power of attorney to his uncle, Joseph Sackett;
      Hunterdon Co. Records 1701-1838; page 14 (p. 74)
      Power of attorney dated 19 Aug. 1731 of Joseph Sackett, aged ca. 15 years.,
      son of Simon and Mary Sackett, of Trenton dec'd to "my dear beloved and
      honored uncle Joseph Sackett of New Town, Queens County, Island of Nassau"
      yeoman, "my guardian"...to dispose of any real and personal property "until
      I become twenty and one". Wit: J. Forster and Chas. Reilly. No date of
      recording. - [Provided by Illyce MacDonald]

      From the Orphan's Court records of Bucks County PA; File #228
      shows that 22-Simon's unborn child was also named Simon Sackett (1717-1747). When Simon Sackett, jr died in 1747 he left a widow named Mary (Walhill) Sackett and three daughters.
      File #228 for Simon Sackett, taylor, of Bristol Borough: brother Joseph & John Wilkinson of Wrightstown appointed guardians of Simon's three daughter's, all under age 14. Wm. Buckley, Bristol Boro., and Thos. Dowdney, of Bristol Twp., exrs. (same as will) but adds that Thos. Dowdney died soon after Simon & that Wm. Buckley was also the administrator for the widow Mary Sackett, deceased.
      Daughter Mary, about 6 years of age at the time, was placed with her aunt, the wife of William Wetherill (Rebecca HAINES Wetherill). She remained with them for 7 years & 8 months i.e. until Aug 1756. Mary left to live with her uncle, Joseph Sackett.
      16 Mar 1757: Mary, now aged 14, petitions for Joseph Sackett to act as guardian - granted.
      13 Jun 1759: Mary, Rebecca & Sarah, all over age 14, petition for guardians; Joseph Sackett appointed.
      [Note: Based upon this information we have removed Weygant's #82-Thomas Sackett, m. Sarah Haywood from the family of #22-Simon Sackett and Mary McGraw. - Thurmon King]
