In 1836 that part of Lee Co. was in Ogle Co.
Reuben R. Sackett had a brother named Alfred M. Sackett. The obituary of Alfred states that he was born April 17th, 1822 in Hamilton County, Ohio. Alfred accompanied his family on their moves and to Dixon where he was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal church in 1835 age 13. In 1842 Alfred moved to Galena, Jo Daviess County, Illinois. On September 23, 1847 he was married to Louisa Leet assumably in Galena.
Apparently Samuel and Sarah lived in Dixon until 1847 then he and his wife appear on the 1850 census of Sangamon Co. Illinois with the family of Bazilla and Rosana Campbell.
In 1849 Reuben Sackett then 24 years old, went after gold in California. The story goes that he was up in the Feather River area In 1853 he returned to Illinois and lived in Galena a few years. While there he was married to Miss Elizabeth Rennick daughter of Francis and Margaret Rennick. Reuben and Eliza were married in the home of Alfred M. Sackett in Galena.
In 1855 Reuben is listed on the state census of Jo Daviess page 14 Line 22:
1 male between 20 and 30 [b. 1825-1835]
1 male between 30 and 40 [b. 1815-1825]
Reuben was 30 in 1855.
The Galena Gazette and Advertizer listed the following marriage:- November 20 1857 - Reuben Sackett of Freeport and Miss Elizabeth Rennick of this city.

[There are 10 names listed here; Anna, Ida, or Flora one, must be the same person as Hattie E. Nettie L. was born August 9, 1858 at Freeport Stephenson Co. Illinois. - Laurie Young]

In the obituary of Reuben Sackett it States that they lived on a farm near Galena about three years before moving to Clinton. If this is the farm it is about 30 miles E away from Galena in another county. Silver Creek was about ___ miles away from Freeport.

The family moved to Clinton in a covered wagon in 1861, the first year of the civil war His first enterprise in Clinton was a blacksmith business which he sold to George Aughinbaugh.
