      J SACKETT ALLING is a prominent and influential agriculturist of the town of Stanford, Dutchess county. Asa Ailing, his grandfather, came to Dutchess county from New Haven, Conn., at an early date, and located near Hunns Lake, in the town of Stanford, where he was engaged in farming during the remainder of his life. He married Jemima Purdy, by whom he had five children : Stephen, Sally, Anna, Rhoda and Asa, the last named being the father of our subject.

      Upon the homestead in the town of Stanford Asa Ailing was born in 1789, and there he spent his entire life. In 1812 he was united in marriage with Cornelia Sackett, the eldest daughter of Jehiel Sackett, of the town of Stanford, and to them were born four children: Emily (deceased) was the wife of Jordan Phillips, of Hudson, N. Y.; Samantha E. was the wife of Jeremiah W. Payne, of the town of Northeast, Dutchess county ; J. Sackett is the next in order of birth ; and Laura H. is the widow of William D. Humphrey, of Jackson Corners. After the death of his first wife Mr. Ailing wedded Mary Thompson, daughter of Asa A. Thompson, and to them were born two children: John T., of Poughkeepsie, N. Y. , and Cornelia S., widow of G. F. Butts, formerly of Stanford. The latter gave his allegiance to the Democratic party, and served as supervisor and justice of the peace, while, religiously, he held membership with the Baptist Church.

      J. Sackett Ailing, the subject of this sketch, spent his boyhood days upon the home farm, attending the district schools of the neighborhood, and later was a student in Amenia Seminary and the Jacob Willets Boarding School, in the town of Washington, Dutchess county. He was born May 17, 1822, and remained a member of the parental household until twenty years of age, working on the farm during the summer months, while during the winter season he taught school. In 1845 he went to New York City, where he was engaged in the carpet business some twenty years, when he returned to the old homestead, of which he purchased 170 acres, and has since lived upon that place.

      In 1855, in New York City, Mr. Ailing married Miss Ann Eliza Bertine, who was born in 1835 in that city, of Huguenot ancestry. This worthy couple became the parents of nine children: Charles Sumner, who died at Seward, Neb., in 1S93; Frank P., of Bangall,. Dutchess county; Robert B., a lawyer of New York City; Samuel D. (deceased); Jehiel S., of Great Falls, Mont.; Newton D., who is connected with the Nassau Bank, New York City; Asa A., of the legal firm of Hennessey, Grain & Ailing, corner of South William and Beaver streets, New York City; Lewis W., bookkeeper for the above firm; and Mary, who died in childhood. Although Mr. Ailing has reached the age of seventy-five years, he is still well-preserved and quite active. He has always been successful in his business undertakings, and by his fair and honorable dealings has won the esteem and regard of all with whom he has come in contact. Politically, he is a member of the Democratic party, and he adheres closely to the lines drawn by that organization.
