  • Notes 
    • son of (714?) Aaron, was born near Rutland, Vt.

      In 1839 he removed to Rochester, NY., and the following year from thence to Eden Township, La Grange County, Ind, where he settled permanently, on what has since become known as the Sackett Homestead Farm.

      12720. William Sackett, 1800-1862, son of (714?) Aaron, was born near Rutland, Vt.; was married,
      Sept. 3, 1828, to Mercy Sleade Earle, 1808-1867, a distant relative. In 1839 he removed to Rochester, NY., and the following year from thence to Eden Township, La Grange County, Ind, wher he settled permanently, on what has since become known as the Sackett Homestead Farm. [Weygant page 491]
      ------
      "In 1839, he removed to Rochester, N.Y. and the following year from thence to Eden Township, La Grange County, Indiana, where he settled permanently on what has since become known as the Sackett Homestead Farm. According to his grandson, Schuyler Sackett of Ligonier, Indiana, family lore has it that his wife was quite well-to-do whereas he inherited no money or property at all. He judges that this is true because of the fact that she left a quantity of excellent old furniture and so on which could only have been owned by someone who had means in those pioneer days. Apparently this led to some friction in the family. There was nothing overt but one day William, when he was in his forties, quietly walked out of the house and his family never saw him again. They did learn that he died at Logansport, Indiana in 1864." - [Andrew P. Sackett, p. 75]
      ------
      There is a question as to the place of birth for William. Weygant gives it as Rutland, VT. The 1850 census [given below] gives his place of birth as CT. However, his birth is not found in the Barbour Collection of Vital Records.

      In Weygant's account above, he seems to say that William moved from VT. to Rochester, NY in 1839. However, the 1850 Census below indicates that William was living in NY in 1834 when John E. was born and was also in NY in 1836 when George E. was born. According to Weygant's information it would appear that William moved from NY to IN in the year 1840. Therefore he could have been enumerated in either state in that census. - T. King
