    • Obituary from "The Laurel, Neb., Advocate" carried in a Wapello Co., IA newspaper:
      In Memoriam
      Dr. C. C. Sackett
      The Laurel, Neb., Advocate carries the following opituary notice of Dr. Claude Conwell Sackett, a former resident of Wapello county but for several years a resident od Laurel, who recently lost his life in giving chase to safe blowers who fired on their pursuers:
      "Dr. Claude conwell Sackett was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Sackett, was born on a farm near Dudley, Iowa, June 29th 1875, and spent his boyhood on another farm a few miles away, near the town of Chillicothe, Iowa. He attended school at Ames a year, taught a year, and in the fall of 1895 entered the medical department of the Iowa State college at Iowa city. In 1897 he spent a vacation of six months in the office of Dr. F. H. Nye at Plainview, Neb. Returning to the university he graduated April 15th 1898, and came directly to Laurel, where he has practiced ever since.
      "June 15, 1901, he was married to Anna Myrtle Brooks at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs H. M. Brooks, of Seward, Nebr. To them were born two children, Kathleen, 14, and Brooks, 10, who with their mother survive.
      "His mother died Septmeber 3, 1911. His father lives at Albia, Iowa, and arrived Saturday night. the older brother, Leonard is in the drug business at Grand Junction, Colorado. the younger brother, Lieut. Roy Sackett, M.D. is with the midical corps attached to the 147th Field Artillery in France, having sailed January 10 of this year. The twin brother of Dr. Roy Sackett died in Faeruary 1900.
      "An uncle, C. H. Conwell, lives at DeBeque, Colorado, and last summer Dr. Sackett spent a short vacation in his home.
      "In June 1912, Dr. Sackett joined the Laurel Presbyterian church on confession of faith. He was alos a member of the Laurel Masonic lodge [line missing] Nebraska Medical associaton. He was also a member of the Laurel Home Guards and was secretary of the Laurel Commercial club.
      "the funeral was held at the home Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Only relatives and physicians and their families were seated in the house. Others found places on the lawn and the sermon, by Rev. W. O. Harper, of the Presbyterian church was delivered from the porch. It is estimated that 2,000 people were present. Rev. Dr. Harper was assisted by Rev. A. M. Macintosh, pastor of the Presbyterian church at Hawarden, Iowa, and the first pastor of the Presbyterian church in Laurel. The music consisted of selections by a male quarete composed of C. A. Elphick, Rev. W. O. Harper, C. L. Woodruff and H. J. Candor.
      "Following the service conducted by Rev. Mr. Harper, C. P. Kilbourn of Sioux City, took charge for the Masonic lodge, at the request of the master, B. J. Hoile, and spoke briefly, closing his remarks with the announcement that the further rites would be carried out at the grave. At this juncture opportunity was given for the friends who desired to do so to pass through the house and take a last look at the doctor as he lay in his casket in the reception hall. While not all availed themselves of this privilege, it was nearly an hour before those who do desired had passed through. Hundreds followed the remains to the cemetery and witnessed the last rites there. Members of the Masonic lodge, the Eastern Star and the Laurel Home Guards attended the services in bodies.
      "It goes without saying that sucha service for the dead was never before known in Laurel. People came from the country for miles around and all of the nearby towns were represented. The doctor was os widley known and in his tewnty years of practice here had endeared himself to so many pepole that could not well have been otherwise."

      Mrs. D. M, 8aokett.

      Elizabeth Ann Sackett was born in Carroll County, Ohio, May 15, 1853, and died September 3, 1911. When a child she came with her father's family to Iowa and settled in Wapello county on the farm where she made her home up to the time of her death, and where she had spent all but ten years of the time since she came to Iowa.

      She attended the schools of the community and afterwards taught several terms of school. She was married to D. M. Sackett, March 13 1873. To this union four sons were born: Leonard W., Claude C., Roy F. and Ray L. Ray departed this life at the age of 14 years and 11 months. Mrs. Sackett leaves to mourn her loss her husband and three sons: Claude of Laurel, Neb., Roy of Hurley, S. D., and Leonard of North Dakota; a brother, Caleb Conwell of De Beque, Col., and a sister, Mrs. Eliza Warren of Wapello county, and also three grandchildren.

      The funeral services took place from her late home on Wednesday, September 6, 1911. Rev. G. W. Barber, pastor of the M. E. Church, conducted the services.

      With the passing cf Mrs. Sackett a good woman has gone from earth, one who will be sadly missed, both in the home and neighborhood, as she was an affectionate wife, a loving mother, and a helpful and obliging neighbor.

      Mrs. 3ackett was of the second generation of those who have made the wilderness to become a desirable state In Iowa, with our free institutions and religious liberty. She lived not alone tor herself, but to bring light and joy to others.

      The ri3ing generation owe a debt of gratitude to her generation that they can hardly realize now.

      Mrs. Sackett was in sympathy with all the great moral progress of the day and was a believer in the saving power of our Saviour.
