  • Notes 
    • Joel was a Christian minister of the Camelite sect. At times he also functioned as a doctor. As Schuyler Sackett of Ligonier, Indiana, a cousin, said, "He would tackle anything from preaching to building a house to quack doctoring". Frank Sackett, a grandson, tells of a time when Joel was an old man of his coming to their house much agitated after a quarrel with his wife, Lena. He said, "The Lord told me to leave Mary and now I think He wants me to leave Lena": He went back in a couple of days, however, and all was well between them thereafter. Joel died February 1, 1904, at a place called Little Prairie Round just west of Marcellus, Michigan and he was buried at the Little Prairie Round Cemetary. - [Andrew P. Sackett, "Ancestors and Descendants of Frederick Plummer Sackett"; page 76]

      Also, according to Andrew P. Sackett, page 76, Joel Bascom Sackett and Mary Kindman had only three children: Frederick Plummer Sackett, , born June 25, 1837; Pluma Alsafine Sackett, born May 12, 1838; and Charles Sackett who was abducted as a child and was never recovered. He further states that there were seven children born of the second marriage.

      BIOGRAPHIES OF VAN BUREN CITIZENS

      Joel B. Sackett was reared in Niagara county, New York, where his parents were pioneer settlers, and was there educated, becoming a member of the medical profession. Removing to Indiana, he practiced there awhile, his home being in Elkhart county. About 1846 he came to Michigan, settling in Porter township, Van Buren county, being the first physician to locate permanently in this part of the state. He was a man of much force of character, and in addition to healing the sick ministered to their spiritual needs, as an evangelist preaching the gospel in different places and making his influence for good felt throughout the community. His death, which occurred in Porter township, was mourned as a public loss. He married Mary Kinsman, and they became the parents of three children, Frederick P., Pluma and Charles.
