      James Lewis Sackett
      Birth: Dec. 20, 1831
      Connecticut, USA
      Death: Jan., 1899
      Elco
      Alexander County
      Illinois, USA

      Elco, IL.--JAMES L. SACKETT DEAD--Old Resident of Elco Stricken With Paralysis Last Sunday.

      James L. Sackett died at his home at Elco Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock, as the result of a stroke of paralysis. Saturday evening he went out to feed his stock and when he did not return to the house after a considerable lapse of time, his wife went out in search of him and found him lying helpless upon the ground, and the hogs rooting him around. He was carried to the house but medical assistance could not bring him around, and he died as above stated. So far as we can learn he had never had a stroke of paralysis before.

      James L. Sackett was the youngest of ten children. He was born December 30, 1831, in Connecticut. His grandfather was a soldier in the War of the Revolution. He removed to Illinois with his parents in 1840, settling in Madison County, and in 1860 he came to Alexander County, settling first on Sandy creek but removing to Elco three years later.

      He served in the War of the Rebellion for a short time, but was discharged on account of disability on May 29, 1865.

      In 1858 he was married at Belleville to Miss Eliza Ansen and they had ten children of whom six are still living--Mrs. Paul Loeschner, Miss Minnie Sackett, of Chicago; Richard Sackett, telegraph operator at Elco; Louis Sackett, who is a telegraph operator in Kansas, and Misses Clara and Mattie Sackett who live at home.

      Mr. Sackett was a staunch republican and a familiar figure in all county conventions. At his death he was school trustee, a position which he held for fifteen or twenty years. He was one of the best citizens of the county, and his untimely death is not only a great shock to his friends but a heavy loss to the community.

      From The Cairo Citizen, Thursday, January 5, 1899, contributed by Anna Shelton. (Mr. Sackett is buried in the Hazlewood Cemetery between Elco and Tamms.)
