At the time this Bible information was recorded, Canfield Township was in Trumbull County. The information came from the book "Trumbull County Ohio Bible and Family
Records" compiled by Ruth Allen. The William Hunt info was on pages 113 and 114.

It lists:
William Hunt born 17 Mar 1769
Susanna Lovell (his Wife) born 3 Jul 1777

Children:
Sally born 20 May 1793
Levi born 18 Sep 1795

Ezra J. born 19 Jun 1806
Betsey B. born 10 Feb 1809
Ruthana born 29 May 18??
David no date

William Henry Harrison Chase was born May 28, 1839 in Portage County, Ohio to Martin Lewis Chase and Laura B. Sackett. He was a stone mason by trade.

William enlisted in January 1862. He was a Private in Company B of the 5th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. His name "W. H. H. Chase" is inscribed on the Fort Ridgely Monument located in Minnesota. The monument commemorates the role played by Companies B and C of the 5th Regiment Minnesota Volunteer Infantry in defending the fort against the Sioux attack under Little Crow from August 18 to August 27, 1862. His unit served in this capacity at several forts along the frontier until rejoining the rest of the regiment at Oxford, Mississippi in December 1862. His service ended September 6, 1865.

On June 17, 1866, William married Roseanne Bolwine in Rochester, Olmsted, Minnesota. Five children were born to this union: Evaline Louise (1869), Agnes Gertrude (1871), Sylvester (1872), Robert Francis (1875), and Rose Ella (1876). Roseanne died January 21, 1885 in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota. In May 18, 1885, a few months after William's first wife died, he married Ellen M. Remick (see wedding photo) in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota. Ellen was born February 24, 1862 in Olmsted County, Minnesota. Nine children were born to this union: Grace Adeline (1887), Ethel Mae (1890), Arthur Melton (1892), Ralph McKinley (1894), Dewey L. (1898), Ernest Lorenzo (1902), Harold Verne (1904), and Iona Lucile (1910). Ellen died November 5, 1917 in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota.

William Henry Harrison died from a left cerebral hemorrhage on August 15, 1913 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota at the age of 74. He was buried on August 19, 1913 in Royalton, Morrison County, Minnesota.

By Allan R. Ellenberger:

Horace David Sackett, whose family came to America from England in 1831, was born in Blandford, Massachusetts on December 29, 1843, the son of Leverett and Mary Culver Sackett. When he was eighteen years old, he went to Suffield, Connecticut and started a flourishing general merchandise and farming business that lasted for several years.

On January 15, 1873, Sackett married Ellen Minerva Lyman (b. July 24, 1848) and became the parents of five children, Mary Mariah (b. July 8, 1875), William (b. June 22, 1876), Warren Lyman (b. August 30, 1882), Zella Myra (b. June 11, 1883), and Emily (b. March 1885).

Sackett was a squat, spare, busy man with a short beard. He was cheerful and kindly but firm in his convictions. In 1887, with $10,000 in his pocket, he left Connecticut with his family and moved to Los Angeles. There he heard about land in the North Cahuenga Valley being subdivided for business and residential purposes. This new development called Hollywood was without lights, telephones, paved streets or other modern improvements.

The developer, Harvey Henderson Wilcox and his wife Daeida was looking for men willing to build up the area and attract new residents. Sackett?s daughter Mary recalled that her family was one of the first families in the area. ?Mr. Wilcox subdivided his 160-acre ranch and named it Hollywood,? Mary recalled years later. ?Both our families settled down there in May, 1888 when I was 12.?

Each lot was going for a fixed price of $1,000 each. But Wilcox gave Sackett, free of charge, three sixty-five foot lots facing the assigned business area at Cahuenga Avenue and the southwest corner of Prospect (now Hollywood Boulevard), if Sackett made certain improvements before the dummy line (the old steam engine with the open car) reached Wilcox Avenue.

By 1888, the railroad was functioning, and Sackett built on the corner a three-story hotel building (above) of wood with a mansard roof, consisting of a corner store, and Prospect Avenue lobby and parlor. Behind that was the culinary department. The stairway from the lobby led to the two stories with their eighteen rooms and a bathroom. Behind the hotel was a barn and corral, and surrounding the store and lobby front was a cypress hedge and two-year-old pepper trees planted by Wilcox, which gave the place a very cozy appearance.

Here the Sacketts ran the first hotel in the Cahuenga Valley and the second general merchandising establishment within the corporate limits of Hollywood. He also kept a few horses for his clientele and to work the blocks east and south of the store, where he had a garden to sell produce in his store.

He later bought the lot south of the hotel and also two lots facing west on Wilcox Avenue, and south of the two northern lots in the row. Here he ran an overnight and breakfast place for city visitors from the north and the bachelors? roost for the young single men of the village. At his store, Sackett sold butter and eggs, crackers and cheese, overalls, jumpers, boots and shoes, ribbons and yardage, and canned goods that were then becoming popular.

Another Hollywood pioneer associated with the hotel was Dr. Edwin O. Palmer, who later wrote a history of the area. Upon his arrival in California, he rented a room and an office for his medical practice.

Sackett?s daughter, Mary and her siblings, attended the old Temple Street School through grade school but didn?t go to high school because it was downtown, and they couldn?t get there on time. Later, Sackett added another store, where in a corner nook constituted Hollywood?s post office; Mary became Hollywood?s first postmistress, running her practiced eye over the little rack of boxes. For her duties, Mary was paid as high as $5 per month.

Tragedy hit the Sackett family in 1899 when his son, William died unexpectedly at 23 years of age and was buried at Rosedale, as there would not be a cemetery in Hollywood for another two years.

Due to competition from the new Hollywood Hotel, built two years earlier at the northwest corner of Prospect and Highland, Sackett closed his hotel in 1905. He sold the property to Henry Gillig, but it remained unoccupied for the next five years except for one store room on the first floor.

In 1907, Sackett built a six bedroom house on property he had previously bought at what is now 1642 Wilcox Avenue. Later that same year, in the reception hall of their home, Sackett?s daughter Zella married George Dunlap. He was the mayor of Hollywood at the time, and the city?s last as Los Angeles annexed Hollywood in 1910.

In 1910, J.P. Creque, one of the wealthiest men in Hollywood, bought the former hotel property for $28,000 from the estate of Henry Gillig, who was now deceased. Creque razed the abandoned hotel and erected a fireproof two-story cream brick structure that cost approximately $30,000. The Hollywood National Bank leased a portion of the new building; there were three other stores facing on Prospect. The second floor had offices with wide hallways and tile flooring..

In 1931, the Creque Building was enlarged by adding two stories; the Art Deco building at 6400-6408 Hollywood Boulevard, is still on the site.

Now retired from the mercantile business, Sackett devoted himself to the management of his private interests and several properties that he owned. He took an active part in the public affairs of Hollywood and Los Angeles for many years and was a man of ability and worth. He was a staunch democrat and was interested in politics, especially in local matters.

It was in their Wilcox Avenue home that Horace Sackett died in 1918 and was buried next to his son at Rosedale. In 1929, his wife Ellen followed him in death at the age of eighty from heart disease.

At the time of Ellen?s death, the area around Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox was mostly commercial, and land was being bought for business purposes. Mary Sackett was living in the family home, but instead of demolishing the house, she sold the property in 1929 but moved the house to the San Fernando Valley which was mostly residential.

Remarkably, the old Sackett house is still standing at 10739 Kling Street in North Hollywood. The 1908 residence looks somewhat out of place next to the small bungalow homes built mostly in the 1930s.

Became a resident of Valparaiso in 1909.

Orville Dee says birthday 23 Nov 1846.
Referred to as Fannie in a letter from her son to Naomi Early.

It seems Pearl Sackett Barnett spent (lived) time with her. Pearl was born in 1866 so was 20 yrs. younger.

She was in Goddard, KS when her third child Clarissa was born there in 1886! (Grandpa was born in 1880 in Goddard, so he was 6 yrs. old) That means James (Fannie's brother) & Mary were close too.

Obit states; Memorial services at Stinchfield Funeral Home on West Jefferson St. Burial was in Graceland Cemetery.

Donald was born in the house on the farm which his grandfather Gibbs had purchased in 1863. His sisters recalled that Don was good at devising ways of improving his chores. Examples: (1) When a sow died, leaving a litter of piglets, he & his sister were supposed to bottle feed them, one by one. He fixed a 'trough so that it would. hold all the bottles with nipples coming through holes so all the piglets could feed at the same time. (2) Handcranked ice cream was hard work, so he attached the handle to a car motor which did, all the work.

Don was 14 when he developed. infantile paralysis in his right leg. His aunt, Ella Gibbs, a registered nurse, took time off to care for him. Sister Kenny had never been heard of then, but Ella gave him treatments much the same as Sister Kenny did in later years, during a polio epidemic. She gave him salt baths, massages and exercise therapy until he recovered. Don was left with a very slight limp, barely noticeable.

Don missed the best part of a year in high school. The principal felt that since Don planned to go to college, he should go an extra year. He took his last year at Springfield Tech HS, taking the train each day unless the weather was too bad, then stayed overnight at the YMCA. Because the local HS was not accredited, his credits did not transfer so he did not get a diploma from either HSI

He took the college entrance exams and passed them and attended Worcester Tech for one year. This institution did not offer the type of engineering he wanted, so he transferred to the U. of Nichigan, graduating in 1919 with a BS in Civil Engineering. His first job was with the Lenowee Co, Highway Dept. in Adrian, MI. Then he worked for the American Bridge Co. in Gary, IN.

On various occasions Don visited distant relatives, Bob and Josephine Lorimer in Evanston, IL. Through them he met the McWhirter family and a romance developed with Ruth McWhirter whom he married in November 1922. By this time he was working for Public Service of Northern Illinois, so they lived in Oak Park and Waukegan. He changed jobs several times and even went into business for himself with an architect named Baird. They had an office in Park Ridge, IL but this venture failed when his partner proved to be untrustworthy.

In 1928 they purchased a new house in Park Ridge. Don fell on-hard times during the Great Depression, so in 1933, they rented their house and moved with their two sons to the Blandford, MA farm with Don's parents. The farm had no electricity, only a battery operated radio which they used 15 minutes a day to hear Lowell Thomas. The boys loved it there!

They returned to IL in 1934 and lived with Ruth's sister in the McWhirter house. Both parents had. died in 1930 & 1931. Don got a job with the Sanitary District of Chicago and worked on the Coffer Dam at the mouth of the Chicago River. In 1937 it collapsed and he was nearly killed, so he quit.

He worked for several companies in the next ten years, then in 1947 he joined the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, a well-known architectural firm. One of his first project assignments was the Oak Ridge (Tenn.) Atomic Energy Plant for which he had to have clearance from the FBI. He remained with this firm until he retired when he was nearly 70. It was at this time that his sister-in-law died and two days later, Ruth died of a massive stroke. This left Don and Ruth's brother Don living together in the house.

Don did not entirely retire. In the next two years he did projects for two men who had also worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill who had started their own businesses. His last project in 1966 was in Washington, DC - a new building for the Smithsonian Institute.

He had been active in the stock market since the 1940's and had accumulated a good portfolio. Retirement gave him more time to devote to this. He also traveled, going to Hawaii in December and returning in April for eleven yrs. He usually spent about three weeks in MA every summer, visiting his sisters and seeing old friends. Just for practice he would go through a calculus book once a year, doing all the problems. He was good in math.
In 1967 he and Don McWhirter sold the old McWhirter house and he moved to an apartment in Evanston. In October 1976 he entered the Kings Home for Retired Gentlemen in Evanston and lived there until he died.
