Three brothers emigrated to America, from England at an early day and Sackett's Harbor on Lake Ontario, in Jefferson county, New York was founded as a village by August Sackett in 1801.

He was in continuous active service and participated in various engagements. On the fourth of April 1864 he was wounded under the right eye by a minie ball. For 30 years, 8 months and 9 days he carried that leaden missile but it eventually gave him so much trouble that he had it removed.

Youngblood of Forsythe, Montana, Anna S. Rich, of Sioux City, Iowa, Ida F. Sackett of Des Moines, Erwin G. Sackett who passed away January 17, 1919, at South Range, Wisconsin.

      George W. Hawkins, who served in First Iowa Cavalry in the War of Rebellion settled on Section 1 of Grand River Township in 1869. John W. Perry and George C. Sackett settled on Section 2 in 1870. About the only settlers in the present township at that time were James Bush, Joel Savage, and possibly some of the Bunce brothers, three or four of whom came at the same time.
