      The Register of Deaths of the First Church, Westfield, Massachusetts, 1728-1836; records the death of "The wife of Stephen Sacket, Jr. on 27 Oct 1815. This would be the death of Hannah Bancroft Sackett. The First Church records also indicate that Stephen, jr. and Hannah Bancroft Sacket were the parents of 7 children. Two of these children, Hannah and Samuel Bancroft are known to have lived to adulthood.

      "Boston Mormons and Missionaries 1832-1860";by Connell O'Donovan; p. 252 states that Stephen, jr remarried, about 1817 to a woman named Hannah or Ruhamah and that he probably died before 1820 when Ruhamah Sackett is enumerated as head of household:
      Sacket, Ruhamah
      Year: 1820; State: MA; County: Hampden; Township: Westfield
      Roll: M33_48«tab»Page: 209
      Census: 100 000 - 110 10
      There is a son under 10 and two daughters, 1 under 10 and one age 10-15. The daughter under 10 is identified in "Boston Mormons" as Jane Sackett who married, 20 Jan 1837, John Hardy, jr. in Boston, MA. This identification is suggested by the presence of a Ruhanna Sackett in the household of John and Jane Hardy in the:
      1850 Census; Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine
      Page 147[stamped 74]; 23 August, 1850
      625/680
      John Hardy, 33, M, Chair Gilder, Me.
      Jane Hardy, 32, F, ---, Me.[sic Mass.]
      Mary E. Hardy, 12, F, ---, Me. [sic Mass], attends school
      Jane L. Hardy, 7, F, ---, Me. [sic Mass.], D.&dumb
      Wm. B. Hardy, 5, M, ---, Me.[sic Mass.], attends school
      Persons Hardy, 2, M, ---, Me.
      Ruhanna Sackett, 43, F, ---, Mass

      Ruhanna Sackett was born about 1807. Therefore she would have been the daughter age 10-15 in the 1820 census. So then, if Jane Sackett Hardy was a daughter of Stephen, jr. then, because Hannah Bancroft Sackett died in 1815; Ruhamah/Ruhanna Sackett (b. 1806) would have been the daughter of Ruhamah by a previous marriage.

      The absence of a marriage record for Stephen Sacket, jr. and Ruhamah ______ complicates things. However, the fact that her daughter is listed as Ruhanna Sackett in the 1850 census suggests that, at the time she married Stephen, jr. her married name was Sackett.

      The Massachusetts Vital Records; 1841-1910 transcribed by Chris Sackett gives some answers:
      http://www.sackettfamily.info/vrma1841.htm
      Vital Records of Massachusetts 1841-1910
      Sackett, Ruhamah, Boston, 1856, v104, p53, Death
      "1856 Aug 8, Ruhamah Sackett, 50, at Boston, cause "unknown", female, single, b. Hinsdale, d. Walter & Ruhamah" [Born 1806]

      http://www.sackettfamily.info/vrma1841.htm
      Vital Records of Massachusetts 1841-1910
      Sackett, Charles, Boston, 1856, v104, p33, Death
      "1856 May 10, Charles Sackett, 49-2-21, at Boston, disease of kidneys, male, married, shoemaker, b. Hinsdale, s. Walter & Ruhamah"

      These records show that Ruhamah had been married to a Walter Sackett. However, her son Charles was born 19 Feb 1807. Therefore he would not be the son under 10 in the 1820 census. The son under 10 must have been a son of Stephen Sackett, jr. and his 1st wife, Hannah Bancroft. The MA vital records show that he was:
      http://www.sackettfamily.info/vrma1841.htm
      Vital Records of Massachusetts 1841-1910
      Sackett, Francis, Ashburnham, 1873, v258, p285, Death
      "1873 Nov 25, Francis Sackett, m, married, 63-2-3, insane - suicide, at Ashburnham, painter, b. Westfield, s. Stephen Sackett, father b. Westfield"
      [calculated birthdate: 22 Sep 1810]

      Francis Sackett (22 Sep 1810-25 Nov 1873) is the 8th child of Stephen, jr. and Hannah Bancroft Sackett.

      The death records for Ruhamah and Charles gives their birthplace as Hinsdale, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts. Dalton, MA Marriages to 1850 has:
      LYMAN, Ruhamah of Partridgefield, and Walter Sacket of Partridgefield, Nov. 21, 1799.*
      * Intention not recorded.
      Their marriage intentions appear to have been filed in Peru:
      Sackett, Walter
      Married: Nov 16, 1799 in: Peru, Berkshire Co., MA
      Gender: M
      Spouse name: Lyman, Ruhamah
      This record can be found at: Family History Library, Salt Lake City, UT, Film # 1901873.

      This gives us the maiden name of Ruhamah as LYMAN. One of Jane Sackett Hardy's daughters was named Jane Lyman "Jennie" Hardy.

      The death of Walter is recorded in Hinsdale as was the death of two of his children:
      HINSDALE DEATHS. [Hinsdale, Berkshire Co., MA: TO THE YEAR 1850.
      SACKET (see Sackett) Walter, Apr. 14, 1813, a. 37 /N. C. R.
      ______, s. Walter, Mar. 3, 1808, a. 7. C.R.
      ______, ch. Walter, Aug. 9, 1812, a. 3 w. C.R.

      Walter Sacket was a son of Gad Sacket and Lucy Williams.

      Therefore, the household of Ruhamah in the 1820 census consisted of Stephen and Hannah's son Francis (under 10), b. 1810, Stephen Jr. and Ruhamah's daughter, Jane (under 10) b. 1819 and Ruhamah, daughter of Walter (age 10-15) b. 1806.

      Because Ruhamah was enumerated as head of household in 1820, it was supposed that Stephen, jr. had died by then..The absence of Stephen, jr and Ruhamah's son Charles in the 1820 census could have been because they were away from home, possibly visiting Boston prior to moving there. In 1830 Stephen's household appears to have been enumerated in Boston:
      Sackett, Stephen [?Stephen Sackett, jr ?]
      Year: 1830; State: MA; County: Suffolk; Township: Boston, Ward No. 7
      Roll: M19_65«tab»Page: 264
      Census: 001 020 010 000 0 - 001 110 010 000 0
      1 male 10-15 = b. 1815-1820; [???]
      1 male 20-30 = b. 1800-1810; Charles; b. 1807 [s. of Walter and Ruhamah]
      1 male 20-30 = b. 1800-1810; Francis b. 1810 [s. of Stephen jr and Hannah Bancroft]
      1 male 50-60 = b. 1770-1780 Stephen; b. 1777
      1 female 10-15 = b. 1815-1820; Jane b. 1818 [dau. Stephen and Ruhamah]
      1 female 15-20 = b. 1810-1815; [??]
      1 female 20-30 = b. 1800-1810; Ruhamah b. 1806 [dau. Walter and Ruhamah]
      1 female 50-60 = b. 1770-1780; Ruhamah b. 1775-1780
      ------

      Information supplied by Connell O'Donovan shows that Stephen and Ruhamah moved from Westfield to Boston before the 1830 census:
      1829 Boston City Directory, p. 233
      Sacket, Stephen, Indian doctor, 14 Myrtle
      1830 Boston City Directory, p. 268
      Sackett, Stephen, Indian doctor, 14 Myrtle
      1831 Boston City Directory, p. 282
      Sackett, Ruhamah, 14 Myrtle
      [Due to the fact that the Massachusetts Vital Records 1841-1910 does not have a death record for Stephen Sackett. However, the Boston City Directories for 1830 and 1831 indicate that Stephen died before the 1831 directory was published.]
