    • of Warren, Conn., Treaford, VT., and Cayuga County, NY.

      At the outbreak of the war of the Revolution he enlisted in the 5th Connecticut Regiment, commanded by Col. Watterbury, and attached to Gen. Wooster's Brigade. He was by occupation a farmer, and settled first at Warren, Conn. In February, 1788, he sold his farm at Warren and removed to Thetford, VT., where he had purchased a farm, and located some four miles west of the Connecticut River. This farm he in 1801 sold to Judge Buckingham and removed to another a few miles distant on the banks of the Connecticut. In 1805 he disposed of this farm also and migrated with his large family to Aurelius, Cayuga County, NY., where he subsequently purchased another farm and built upon it a house, in which he lived until 1832. His son Garry V., and other members of his family became meantime interested in the settlement and building up of a new village, now called Seneca Falls, ten miles to the westward of the Sacket homestead at Aurelius. In 1832 William Sacket removed to the new village, where he had purchased a comfortable cottage, in which he spent his remaining years.

      Thetford, VT. was chartered in 1761 by Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire, one of 131 towns chartered between 1760 and 1764 in what are now the states of Vermont and New Hampshire. Governor Wentworth named the town in honor of Augustus Henry Fitzroy, 3rd Duke of Grafton, 4th Earl of Arlington, 4th Viscount Thetford, a distant cousin of the king who was soon to become Prime Minister. The Thetford Grant was made to sixty-two proprietors, fifty-one of whom were from Hebron, Connecticut, led by John Phelps. The first permanent settler was John Chamberlin, an agent of one of the proprietors, who settled on a site on the Connecticut River in 1764 in what is now East Thetford. - excerpted from Charles Latham, Jr's A Short History of Thetford, Vermont 1761-1870

      ==== End Pension File ====
      I believe that the Alexander for whom William substituted was probably his cousin 663-Alexander, the son of Reuben Sackett of Warren, CT. This file also shows that William moved from VT to NY in 1805. Therefore, the reference to William in the letter by Eleazer Finney in 1811 to Dr. Samuel Sackett; did mean that William had moved to NY. The file also shows that the first wife of William was Eunice BEEMAN. - Thurmon King
