  • Notes 
    • Following the death of his father in 1777 at Warren, Litchfield Co., CT; his uncle, Reuben Sackett was appointed guardian for Almeron and four of his siblings. Almeron was "a Minor of about 6 Years old..." on April 7, 1777.

      Charles Weygant; "The Sacketts of America", page 108 lists Almeron as having died unmarried. The LDS IGI shows him as married to Rachel White. However, there are two different dates and locations given for their marriaige (1) 1790 in South Carolina [which is incorrect] and (2) Abt. 1793 in Pennsylvania. Both sources have him as the son of Jonathan and Hannah (Phelps) Sackett.

      During the 1780s four of Almeron's siblings moved from Warren, CT to Vermont and from there they moved to the west between 1800 and 1814. It is believed that Almeron migrated to Vermont with one or more of his siblings. The first record of Almeron's household in in the
      1800 census; Tyoga Twp, Lycoming Co., PA.; p. 551
      Almeron Sacket: 300 10 - 100 10

      He owned Holland Land Company Lot 6 on April 26 1806 and Holland Land Company Lot 36 on February 8, 1808. Almeron then appears in the Court Records of Allegany Co., NY for 1808 and 1809:
      Plaintiff / Defendent / date / Witnesses / Verdict
      Moor, Oliver / Almiron Sackett / Oct 1808 / ---- / def. confesses plaintiff's debt to $70
      Sacket, Almeron / John Lewis / Jun 1809 / damages to $31.58 / native of France Naturalized
      White, Ansel / ---- / Jan 1809 / ---- / Petitions the court to appoint Almeran and Rachel Sackett his guardian until he reaches age 21.

      His occupation is given as a cooper which could explain some of his moving around. He served in the War of 1812 with an Illinois unit: Military 1814 IL.
      Almeron and his wife Rachel were named administrators of the estate of Anson White on August 29 1814 in Muskingum Co., Ohio, Ohio
      Discharge papers: Zanesville Ohio "40 yrs of age 5' 7" brawny complexion dark eyes dark hair.
      Through a Bounty Land Warrant for his service in the War of 1812, he claimed 320 acres of land on 20 Jan 1818 located in the S1/2 Sec 27, Twp. 11N, Range 2E in Knox Co., IL and he sold the land while living in Gallatin Co., IL in 1820.

      On January 22 1820 he had a letter waiting at the Post Office in Edwardsville, Madison Co., IL.

      Almeron was listed in the 1820 census:
      1820 Census; Alexander Co., IL.
      Roll: M33_11 Page: 3
      Census: 220 101 - 200 10
      males: 2 under 10; 2 age 10-15; 1 45+,
      females: 2 under 10; 1 age 26-45

      Almeron's wife, Rachel appears to have died shortly after the 1820 census because he remarried on 18 Sep 1823 in Bond Co., IL to Isabella Worley.

      The date and place of his death and burial are not presently known.
