    • History of Lewis County, New York, pgs 524:
      Martin J. Sackett.
      The subject of this sketch is of New England parentage, and was born in the town of Turin, September 15, 1832. His parents were Gad Sheldon Sackett and Elmina Miller. Their other children were Lucina, born April 27, 1835, married A.L. Kellogg, October, 1856; Lydia, born January 11, 1839, married J. Lucius Seymour, February, 1866; George S., born May 7, 1842; Alson C., born August 27, 1844; Charles K., born March 26, 1848.

      About 1830, the elder Sackett bought a farm in the woods on the western part of the town, on which there was a small clearing and a log cabin, in which Martin was born.

      Those were the rude days of pioneer life, when the dwellings and the school houses were of logs; when stoves were unknown, and the roaring blaze went crackling up the broad fire-place, and men and women sturdily battled with the privations of such a life to insure their children the future days of more comfort, and a higher place of prosperity. In a few years, the elder Sackett built a framed house, and here on the farm, Martin passed his early life.
