  • Notes 
    • of Cochecton Centre, Sullivan County, NY.

      Socrates Sackett settled with his family in town of Fremont, in Dec., 1849, but a
      month later his house and all it contained was burned. In 1852, he removed to Cochecton Centre, where he has since resided and reared his family. He was, early in life, a carpenter and builder, but for many years has been a farmer. He is greatly respected by his townsmen and for many years has been a Justice of the Peace and a Notary Public.

      Note regarding Lewis L. Sackett who married Permila Keesler, by Ted Smith, 10 May 2018:

      While working on the database at Sackett-tree.org, I stumbled into an apparent error in Weygant. Page 276 lists the children of Socrates Sackett (his number 1846h) and Ruby M. Davis. Their child 4544 is Lewis L. Sackett who married Permilia Keesler. Then, on that same page are the children of George Sackett (his number 1849) and Sophia Amy ___. Their child 4544 is Lewis L. Sackett who married Permilia Keesler.

      The error became apparent to me when I was entering Permilia's parents into the database and suddenly realized that she and Lewis had been entered twice by Thurmon. At first I was puzzled, and then I realized that George's listed children are not in perfect sequence. The numbering of his children on page 276 goes 4552, 4553, then back to 4544, then forward to 4555, and on sequentially from there. In other words, it appears that Lewis L. who married Permelia Keesler most likely is displayed incorrectly as a child of George and that some another child of George (a number 4554) was omitted from the list.

      So, we will need to rely on other records to correct the database, eliminate the duplicate entries, and add any missing child.

      Socrates G. Sackett is http://www.sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I5809&tree=1 , The 1860 census definitely identifies a child named Lewis, b. c1852.

      George H. Sackett is http://www.sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I5828&tree=1 . The 1850 Census shows

      "United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4H3-WZC : accessed 15 August 2015), Marietta Sacket in household of George Sacket, Elk, Clarion, Pennsylvania, United States; citing family 951, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).

      Unfortunately, Lewis was b. in 1851 or 1852, and George died in 1856, so there is no 1860 record for George. However, based on the available information and the number that Weygant assigned to Lewis, it seems logical that he is not the child of George and Sophia Amy Sackett.
