    • of Kent (now Warren), Conn.

      Capt. Sacket was born in East Greenwich (now Hebron), Conn., but in 1750 removed to and became a permanent resident of Kent. He there took an active part in religious, political and military affairs and gained and held the confidence and respect of his townsmen. His name appears in the list of founders of the first church established in Kent, and in 1753 he was appointed by the General Assembly of Connecticut to collect a tax levied against the property of East Greenwich for support of a minister of the Gospel.

      He was a Justice of the Peace from 1771 to 1777, and again from 1779 to 1782. In the year last named he represented his town in Connecticut Legislature. In 1765 he was commissioned Captain of the Second Train Band of the town of Kent, and during the War of the Revolution he participated in several short campaigns.

      ----

      Bronson's history of Summit County, Ohio (pages 16-17) says:

      Rev. David Bacon, having made an arrangement with the proprietors of Town 2, Range 10 for their unsold lands in the township. His object being the establishing a church and society of the Congregational order. None to be admitted but professors of religion, or their families or those of a standard of morals. He having entered into this contract with Mr. Starr on the 12th day of July, 1806. And with Mr. Tallmadge and soon after returned with his family to the Reserve in the summer or early autumn of the year 1806, and again established his temporary home in Hudson; until he could remove his family to the chosen spot where he expected to live and die.

      In the spring of 1807, he employed Justin E. Frink to clear a piece of land, and to erect a log house, this being done Mr. Bacon moved his family into his log hoose in June 1807. The next thing in the progress of his undertaking was a new survey of the Township, some think this was done in Nov. 1806, but in a letter written by Seth I. Ensign who made the survey to Col. Charles Whittlesey of Cleveland, he says: Itit was in Nov. 1806". Mr. Ensign says in the letter quoted, that the survey was made according to the plan devised by Mr. Bacon himself.Mr. Ensigns assistants as far as is known were Justus Sackett and Salmon Weston, both natives of Warren Litchfield County Conn. And also a man by the name of Singletary.
