      Hi Terri,

      I have been doing some research on my family tree through information that has been passed down through generations & information found via ancestry.com. It was on the ancestry website that I found critical information from the Sacketts of America (in the Library of Congress). I found on page 471 notes that list my great great grandfather, Royal Orange Burrell. I knew his mother was Helen Amelia Day & knew that her father was Frederick Day but did not know her mother's name. When I searched the Sackets of America further, I noted on page 404 that Helen's mother was Mary Allen Sackett. When I search The Sackett Family Association website under Helen Amelia Day's information, you have her listed as marrying Aaron Burrell. I know some of the census information states this also, however, this information is wrong.... she actually married Arora James Burrell (this is the name I have that has been passed down from my personal family information & is also confirmed in the Sacketts of America book (pg. 404). Is it possible to make the corrections on your Association website?

      Note: Ted Smith verified the spelling: A quick search of Ancestry.com for Arora James Burrell found entries in Michigan, Wills and Probate Records, 1784-1980 for Burrell, Arora J. The probate record (image page 172) there mentions Hahn D. Burell and confirms that Arora is male. Other records that mention Arora are the 1880 census, Find a Grave, and U.S., Civil War Soldiers and Profiles, 1861-1865. I think we can safely affirm that Arora was his name.
