  • Notes 
    • of Jamaica, Long Island, and Brooklyn, NY.

      The greater part of the adult life of Mr.. Sackett was spent in Brooklyn, where he was interested in many public movements having for their object the commercial, industrial, educational and moral advancement of that ambitious and thriving village, which has since become a great city. He was a member of the first Board of Directors of the Wallabout and Brooklyn Bridge Company, incorporated Apr. 6, 1805. When in 1815 The Society to Prevent and Suppress Vice in the town of Brooklyn was organized, he was made one of its Executive Committee. He was also for many years a trustee of the Brooklyn Select Academy. Stiles in his "History of Brooklyn," written in the year 1816, says: "On the lower side of the turn of present Clinton Street into Fulton was a pretty two story frame dwelling of Samuel Sackett, who was a most excellent man. He was for many years Overseer of the Poor of Brooklyn, to which, as well as to the duties of a trustee of the only public school, he gave his undivided attention. He was a man of polished manners and agreeable address, and was highly esteemed by his contemporaries."
