  • Notes 
    • 1200. John Sackett, M. D., 1785-1827, of Western New York, and near Boston, son of (541) Major Buel and Sally E. Beach Sackett, was married in 18__, to Loraine _____, who, after the death of her husband, removed to Vermont. [Weygant, p. 224]
      Note: Weygant's belief that Dr. John Sackett lived "near Boston" is shown to be an error by the documents found in the War of 1812 Widow's Pension File of his widow where she states that following their marriage he lived 1 year in Essex, VT; 1 year in Bulington, VT; 1 year in New Lebanon, NY; and "the rest of his life in Nassau, NY." Loraine's pension file also states that they were married 27 May 1816 and that neither of them had been previously married. This indicates that Weygant was in error when he attached Rev. John Buel Sackett, born 1812 at Tobias, Cattaraugus Co., NY (Fabius, Onondaga Co., NY), as a child of Dr. John and his wife Loraine. The idea that Dr. John Sackett may have lived "near Boston" is probably due to the fact that in 1850 Loraine was enumerated in the household of her son-in-law, Wellington Ketchum at Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., MA. - [Thurmon King]

      The following account concerns Dr. John's relationship with his great aunt Abigail (Sacket) Stanton (c1741-1831) who lived at Burlington, Chittenden Co., VT:
      "The History of my Grandmother", by Chauncey Graham Lee, Son of Abigail Stanton & Chauncey Lee, D.D. [He was the grandson of Abigail (Sackett) Stanton (mother of his mother) who is the subject of this sketch.]
      p. 22

      "... Her family name was Sacket, & a curcumstance transpired to show her weakness in another direction. There came to her house a youngerly man by the same name who upon inquiry appeared to be a distant relative.** Thence her family pride came up so much like a thing of dotage that she at once put the most implicit confidence in him & employed him to assist her in the transaction of her financial affairs. The man was a physician, had been in the army at Black Rock during the war of 1812 & was to the apprehension of every body except the old lady, whom he called Aunt, as profligate as he was pennyless. She was frequently warned to beware of him but she had no ear for such a communication. For a time he was quite attentive to her wishes, but directly she began to find bills coming in against her which she had given him money to discharge. It happened that the old lady held a bond against a man in the State of New York for five hundred dollars which was forfeited. Upon consulting with some real friends an arrangement was made by which she recovered all the money. She put it into the till of her chest where every thing went that was to be kept with safety. It"

      p. 23
      "seems however that for a short time one day the chest was left unlocked. And lo! when she came to look again her money was gone & she never saw any thing more of it. Sacket was about the house at the time & was knowing to the fact that she had lately received it. No one unless it were the old lady ever doubted a moment where the money went, & although she might have suspected Sacket it is not known that she ever communicated such a suspicion to any person. But the fact that he pocketed all the money he could get hold of & left her to pay her debts a second time soon brought things to a crisis & she began to urge him for a settlement. But he put her off from time to time till at length she sued him for a settlement. Upon this he returned the commpliment & made out an account against the old lady for services, estimating their value at five hundred dollars. This account he sold to a shaver of notes & left the country. ..."
      [Note: Dr. John married in Essex, VT in 1816 and lived there 1 year and then 1 year at Burlington, VT before moving to New Lebanon, NY. Therefore, the incident above would probably have occurred before 1818. - Thurmon King]
      ------
      Doctor John SACKETT was born on July 31, 1785. He served in the military between August 9, 1813 and June. Dr. John Sackett served in the War of 1812 as Surgeon's mate, 11th infantry, enlisted August 9, 1813, honorably discharged June, 1815. He died on February 17, 1827.

      He was married to Lorrain LAWRENCE between May 18, 1814 and 1816. Two different dates were given in Widow's Pension Application. Lorrain LAWRENCE was born in February 1794. She died on August 26, 1881. - [Jeanette Boden ]
      Note: The 1814 date was given in the original application and was proven to be in error by evidence from the testimony of Isaac Sackett in Loraine's Bounty Land Claim. Therefore, 1816 date was accepted. - [Thurmon King]
