  • Notes 
    • "SACKETT: Samuel Sackett was born September 1, 1797, in Butler County, Ohio. He was married to Miss Sarah Wickard, in 1820. Moved to Sangamon Co., IL. in 1829. Was converted in 1831 and united with the M. E. Church. He lived in Clinten, DeWitt Co., IL. for a number of years. Five years ago Father and Mother Sackett came to Twin Springs, Linn Co., Kansas, to spend their last days with their only daughter, wife of Hen. B. Campbell. The were surrounded with the comforts of life, and with kind hands to minister to their wants. Three years ago Mother Sackett was called away. Father Sackett was left until Feb. 9, 1880. He filled the offices of trustee, Sunday School Superintendent, class leader and steward, and had been a subscriber for the Central Christian Advocate ever since it had been a paper. He was a good man, spurning all comformity to the world, and seeking through earnest prayer and diligent study of God's Word, to become an Israelite indeed, and his efforts were rewarded with a rich and happy experience. His last words were; "Christ is all my hope." A large concourse of friends and relatives followed him to his last resting place. The funeral sermon was preached by the writer, from Matt. 25:21. - James M. Payne"

      DEATH GATHERS THEM IN.

      Samuel SACKETT, an old resident of this city, and the father of Messrs. A. M. and Reuben SACKETT, died at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Baz. CAMPBELL, at Twin Springs, Kansas, on last Tuesday, at the advanced age of nearly eighty-three years. Father Sackett was born near Cincinnati on the first of September, 1797, and about fifty years ago came to Illinois to seek a home in the new West. Thirty years ago he came to Clinton and engaged in the drug business. In his younger days he had given some attention to the study of medicine, and this reading had given him a taste for the drug trade. For a time he was in partnership with Drs. GOODBRAKE and T. K. EDMISTON. Dr. Goodbrake sold to the other partners his interest, and then came the fire on the north side of the square, where now stands the Magill block, and swept away in a short time the savings of years. The drug store was insured, but Edmiston and Sackett never got a dollar as the company was worthless. Father Sackett was in debt and without a dollar, as the fire had consumed everything, when his son Alfred, who was in business at Galena, came to the rescue and paid off his father's debts and helped him to a new start in life. Father Sackett then began business on his own account, and a few years after sold out and retired. Old age began to tell on Father Sackett and his wife, and four years ago or more they went to Kansas to live with their daughter, Mrs. Baz. Campbell, hoping that a change of climate would smooth their declining years. Three years ago, the 14th of last month, Mother Sackett died. Her aged partner tarried but a few years longer when he, too, passed from time into eternity. Father and Mother Sackett were members of the M. E. Church in this city, and in their early days were active workers for their Master. Mr. and Mrs. Reuben SACKETT left for Kansas on Tuesday evening to attend the funeral.
