    • History of Lewis County, New York, pgs 524-526:
      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.
      He received his education in the common schools, and in Lowville Academy, and taught school seven years, three of which were passed in the schools of Long Island.
      Relinquishing that profession, he became interested in farming and produce dealing, in which business he is now engaged. He is the owner of two hundred and seventy-five acres of land, and has under his control a total of four hundred and seventy-five acres. Mr. Sackett is most fortunate in the location of his farm, as it is situated in one of the pleasantest and most fertile portions

      page 525 (sketch of Martin J. Sackett)

      of the town, deriving on this account a much enhanced value over lands less favorably located. He has always taken great pride in improving to the best of his ability, the lands in his possession, and the beneficial results of his labors are to be seen in every portion of his estate. The following article, written by the editor of the Lowville Journal and Republican, shows the writer's appreciation of the locality in which Mr. Sackett resides:--
      "A ride at this season of the year on the East road, from the old Sheldon tavern, beyond Martinsburgh, is positive luxury. The road is smooth and hard, while the landscape, even to the hills west covered with verdure and noble trees, is pleasant to the view. The fine, large farm with its nice buildings, of Martin J. Sackett, attracts attention of the passer by; next come the fine farms of Charles J. Phelps, Almon Miller, Walter Miller, Albert Miller, Stephen Silvernail, James Kilham, John Strong, Charles Bush, Cadwell Dewey, and others whos names we do not now recall, many of them having beautiful and commodious farm buildings, handsome barns, with all the appurtenances and conveniences necessary for successful farming. Beyond Dweeyville, and on the road to Collinsville, we noticed the large and comfortable farm house of Albert Foster, and further on the rich farms of F.J. Newman and his father, William C. Newman, who lives near Collinsville. From the latter place direct to Constableville, the beautiful and extensive places of Emory Allan and Henry McVicker, are especially attractive."

      page 526

      He has been assesor of his town three years, but has in general been more content to quietly follow his business than to identify himself too much with politics.
      Mr. Sackett has been for the past twenty years one of the most liberal supporters of the Houseville Methodist Episcopal Church. He was married September 15, 1859, to Susan E. Bush, by whom he had two children, Estella M., born December 13, 1864, died June 30, 1878; and Jennie May, born November 18, 1869.
