    • Weygant has his name as Augustus and as Augustine. [And records in Ontario Co., NY have his name as Augustine Sackett.]

      Colonel Sacket was a successful farmer and a thorough going business man. He was born on a farm in Warren, Litchfield County, Conn., and in 1812 removed to Canandaigua, Ontario County, NY., where he and his brother Theron purchased jointly a small farm, to which they added from time to time, and gradually improved until it became one of the most productive and valuable farms in Ontario County. Theron Sacket never married and several years previous to 1850 sold his interest to his brother, Colonel Augustine. The History of Ontario County, published in 1876, by Everts, Ensign and Everts, contains pictures of Colonel and Mrs. Sacket, together with that of the commodious and attractive dwelling in which they resided. Mr. Sacket was, like many of his kinsmen, and enthusiastic militiaman. Several years after he became a resident of Canandaigua he was commissioned Ensign of the light infantry company and speedily passed through all of the intermediary grades to that of commanding officer of the 11th NY. Infantry Regiment. - [Weygant, p. 251-252]

      From Mary Lou Sackett:
      SACKETT, AUGUSTINE
      History of Ontario Co., NY, Pub. 1878, pg. 125
      [this was posted at http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/ontario/bios/s.html]

      Nature had done much for some men, and the simple improvement of inherent qualities has brought a train of comforts such as are considered component parts of life's blessings. In this regard we may briefly consider the character and sketch of the life of Augustine SACKETT. He has come from a pioneer stock, original settlers in Warren, Litchfield county, Connecticut. Upon the farm where he was born on April 24, 1789, his great-grandfather cleared the primeval forest, and the fifth of the SACKETT generations now reside. He was the son of Homer SACKETT, and one in a family of twelve children. His early youth was spent at home, engaged on the farm during the summer, and attending school in winter. These periods of study in good schools enabled young SACKETT to aspire to become himself a teacher, and at the age of nineteen, he conducted a winter school at nine dollars per month, and was well satisfied with his first attempt.
      Members of the SACKETT family had gone to the Genesee country as early as 1801, and some of them had settled and sent home favorable reports of what is now Ontario County proper. The topic of discourse was the advantages offered by this new field, and in April, 1812, Mr. SACKETT left Warren upon a prospecting tour, and at the expiration of twelve days, traveling in a one-horse wagon, reached the town of East Bloomfield. He remained in the town nineteen months, working by the month on a farm, and teaching school. In the fall of 1813, in company with his brother, Theron, Augustine purchased ninety-four acres in the town of Canandaigua, whereon his is a present resident. In November he set out on horseback and returned to Connecticut; he was ten days on the road. He speedily engaged a school in his father's district, and boarded at home. On March 31, 1814, he married Arze, daughter of Platt STARR, born in Warren, June 11, 1793. Leaving his wife at her father's, Mr. SACKETT returned to Canandaigua with a two-horse wagon, and reached his destination about the 1st of May. The summer was passed with Theron on the land previous purchased. August 25th, he drove back east, and on September 16th bade farewell to the old home, and set out with his wife for his new one in Canandaigua. Two weeks were occupied in the journey. These young pioneers began housekeeping in a frame building sixteen by twenty-four feet. Here they lived until 1825, when the house at the present the homestead was erected. The farm, now so well cleared and improved, so well supplied with buildings, had at the outset but twenty acres cleared, and improved, and no house upon it of any account. The blessing of good health was enjoyed, and combined with economy and industry, the comforts of life have been experienced with but few of its luxuries. In time, eight children were added to the family circle. Sarah Lucinda, the eldest, was born June 16, 1815 and died January 7, 1846. Darius C., the youngest, born December 7, 1839, died February 10, 1871; he acquired a good education, and directed his thoughts to sacred themes; became a Presbyterian minister, and was settled over a church at Rock Stream, New York, when his health failed and terminated his labors. After a life companionship of over fifty years, Mrs. Arze SACKETT, died November 20, 1871, and left her husband to travel life's pathway in the companionship of affectionate children. Mr. SACKETT bought out his brother's interests in the farm, and from time to time added to its area until it comprised three hundred and fifty acres. One hundred and fifty have been transferred, leaving two hundred in the homestead. Mr. SACKETT has never been obtrusive, but when called to act has been found capable and reliable. He has been required to server as assessor repeatedly, and as school commissioner served acceptably. To the appellation of colonel he is justly entitled, having risen from the graduations of military rank, and in about 1826 being lieutenant-colonel of a regiment of State troops. These promotions followed as a reward of faithfulness, stimulated by a natural love of discipline. Popular among the men, he was not less so among the officers, and may well recall his experience with pleasure. Early in life, as we have seen, he entered the school-room as an instructor, and have ever been a friend to the common school system. He built, of brick, for four hundred dollars, the first house used for school purposes in the district, and at both academy and seminary has made available their facilities for the education of his children. It is a memory of the past that Mr. SACKETT hauled cord-wood to pay for the tuition of his daughters.

      He joined the Congregational church about 1840, and wife and daughters were and are connected with that denomination. He has not ignored politics, and has been a member of parties regarded by him as best calculated for national progress. A Federalist, a Whig, a Unionist, and at present a Democrat, and in favor of the best men, wherever they may be found. About and with him his family is living in comfort. He has been and is a farmer, and from the production of wheat and the raising of stock has been enabled to obtain a comfortable livelihood. Seen at home, his influence has been firmly and judiciously exercised; not denying reasonable indulgence, and seeing their prosperity, he has the honor and affection of his children, with whom his years pass pleasurably. The impression left upon the mind of the stranger is of an aged man, worthy, estimable, and of noble bearing; hospitable, kind and in the enjoyment of the fruit of honest endeavor; at peace with men, and reporting trust in the goodness of God.

      District No. 1 - Augustine SACKETT and his brother, Theron, came from Litchfield, Connecticut in 1812. they joined means to purchase a farm of ninety-four acres, comprised in parts of lots 59 and 60, from Ebenezer NORTON, then a laywer in Canandaigua.
      ***
      A. SACKETT occupied the old building in 1814; then having built a new house, used the old one as a stable, and finally burned it up. Upon this farm Mr. SACKETT has been an inhabitant for sixty-two years, and is the oldest resident of the district. He has three sons well advanced in age, two of them are living on the farm.

      Augustine, father of Frederick A., was born on the farm cleared by his great-grandfather in Warren, Conn., April 24, 1789, and was the son of Homer, one of twelve children. He taught district school at the age of nineteen, though he did not follow it up. In April 1812, Augustine settled in East Bloomfield, where he remained nineteen months, then bought a farm in company with his brother, Theron, in Canandaigua. The next year he returned to Connecticut and married Arze, daughter of Platt Starr, born in Warren, June 11, 1793. They returned to Canandaigua and in 1825, erected the Sackett homestead, now occupied by H. N. Day. Mr. SACKETT rose from the ranks of the State militia to the rank of lieutenant-colonel of a regiment of State troops. He served as assessor and school commissioner. He had eight children: Sarah L, who died January 7, 1846, aged 31 years; Henry A., who died April 21, 1884, aged 64 years; George B. died November 1, 1890 (born in 1824); Mary E., widow of J. S. Cooley of Canandaigua; Martha J., widow of Rev. George Barr of Virginia; Julia M. of Canandaigua; Rev. Darius C., born December 7, 1839, died February 10, 1871; and Frederick A. Col.

      Col. Augustine Sackett, the oldest citizen of this town, died at his residence about three miles west of this village, on Thursday evening of last week. He had reached the age of 94 years and 10 months. He was always remarkably vigorous, and in good health to within a few days of the end, when he gradually faded away and fell asleep without any sign of disease. We noticed the celebration of his 94th birth day ten months ago, at which time were gathered at the homestead his children and grand children in a happy reunion. There was also a happy family gathering at the homestead last Thanksgiving day. His wife preceded him several years ago. He leaves three sons, Byron, Frederick and Henry, all residents of this town, and three daughters, Mrs. Jas. S. Cooley, and Miss Julia Sackett of this place, and Mrs. Dr. G. R. Barr, of Abington, Va.
