      ------
      Charles Weygant's record [p15] for Simon is as follows:

      "3. SIMON SACKETT, 1630 - 1659, son of (1) Simon Sackett and his wife Isabel, was born in England and brought to New England by his parents before he was one year old. About the year 1652 he was married to his step-father's daughter, SARAH BLOOMFIELD, who had been his companion and playmate from early childhood. His home at the time of his marriage was at Springfield, Mass. The records of that town show that in 1653 he was granted several town lots as an inducement to make it his permanent place of abode, that on March 15, 1653, he purchased from "William Brooks 20 acres of land fronting on ye Great River," and that on March 13, 1653, he subscribed to the "Oath of Fidelity." So far as known he continued to reside at Springfield on the banks of "ye Great River" to the day of his death."
