  • Notes 
    • of Westfield and Pittsfield both in the state of Massachusetts.

      Daniel was married, in 1755, to his first wife, whose name has not been ascertained

      He was an active participant in the Colonial wars of his time, and in the war of the Revolution. The history of "Massachusetts as Colony and State," records the fact that he served in Captain Horton's Company of Colonel Worthington's Regiment in 1756, and that he was with Captain Benjamin Day when he marched his company to reinforce the army at Crown Point in same year. On Apr. 26, 1776, he was commissioned Captain of 7th Company of Col. John Moseley's Hampshire County Regiment, and on Oct. 21, 1776, he marched with his company under Lieut. Colonel Timothy Robinson for Ticonderoga. On Nov. 29, 1777, he was mustered out, but soon reentered the service and continued therein until Nov., 1779, when he resigned, giving as a reason that he was unable to give proper time and attention to the duties of his office. He is also credited with commanding a company in Shay's Rebellion. [Weygant, pages 46, 96-97]
      [Note: There appears to be no record of Daniel's alleged 1st marriage or the birth of the two children from this marriage as Weygant proposes. - Thurmon King]

      DIED, in this town, on Tuesday night, Capt. Daniel Sacket, in the 90th year of his age. He was, through life, an active, industrious, benevolent, and highly useful citizen; and few men ever lived among us who had obtained a stronger hold in the affections and confidence of the people. His character could not be reproached, for he lived and died a chrisian. When such men depart, the people mourn (His funeral will be attended this day, at 1 o'clock P.M.)

      Death: April 20, 1824
      In Pittsfield, Mass. 20th inst.Capt.Daniel Sacket, in the 90th year of his age.
      'At His Years
      Death gives short notice.Drooping nature then
      Without a gust of pain to shake, it falls.
      His deathward journey was that happy period
      Which few attain. The duties of his day
      Were all discharg'd. Calm as the evening skies
      Was his pure mind, and lighted up with hopes
      That open heaven; when for his last long sleep
      Timely prepared, a lassitude of life
      A pleasing weariness of mortal joy,
      Fell on his soul, and down he sank to rest.
