  • Notes 
    • of Brooklyn, N. Y., and New York City

      He was a lawyer. His principal business offices were in New York City, but for many years he maintained his residence in Brooklyn, where, like his honored father, he took a deep interest in local public affairs. When a young man he entered the militia service and held commissions as Ensign, Lieutenant, and Captain in the 82d Regiment of N. Y. Infantry. He was for several years a member of the Village Board of Trustees. In 1823 he delivered a Fourth of July oration which attracted wide attention, and the same year became one of the contributors to and organizers of the Mechanics Library, which became the Brooklyn Institute. In 1827 and 1828 he represented Kings County in the State Legislature. In 1834 he aided in securing for Brooklyn a city charter, and served as a member of its first board of Alderman. A few years later he removed his home to New York City. The following is copied from New York Evening Post of March 9, 1858:

      "The bar of this city has sustained a severe loss in the death of two of its most worthy and respected members, the brothers C. D. and G. A. Sackett. The older brother, C. D. Sackett, died yesterday afternoon of congestion of the lungs. His brother died this morning of apoplexy, a consequence of extreme excitement and grief which the decease of his brother had induced. They were most estimable men. Their relations through life had been singularly close. They lived together, worked together, and died together. The older brother was married and died in his 60th year; the younger was a bachelor and died in his 54th year."

      The following is an extract from the address of Wm. Alfred Jones, Librarian at Columbia College, delivered before the Long Island Historical Society of November 5th, 1863:

      "To this brief catalogue should, in justice be added the names of two of the worthiest of the sons of Long Island, the admirable brothers, Clarence D. and Grenville A. Sackett, than whom we have ever known purer or more honorable characters. They were able and intelligent lawyers, highly principled and kindly men, filled with all the virtues of a manly character; devoted to duty and to each other in life, and not separated in death--a rare

      p. 79
      example of brotherly love and of genuine goodness. As connected, too, with the old and respected families of Oderdonk, Titus, Kissam, and Tredwell; and united by the ties of birth and long residence, and partial affection; by political bias and professional pursuits, their names should never be omitted in a list of those whom this community ought to be proud."
