  • Notes 
    • of Newtown, L. I., New York City, and Jamaica, NY.

      He was born at Newtown and on reaching his majority engaged in mercantile business in New York City, being associated with his brother James. When about 40 years of age he retired from business and settled at Jamaica, where he was married, as above stated. He however, maintained an establishment in New York City, in which he resided for several months of each year as long as he lived. During the early part of the War of the Revolution, when lead was the most difficult of all warlike materials to procure, it is recorded that the lead window weights were removed from the dwellings of the principal citizens and made into bullets for the use of the Continental Army. The house of Samuel Sackett is mentioned as one of the number from which a goodly supply of lead was thus secured.

      The will of Mr. Sackett is recorded in New York City records. It begins in this wise: "I Samuel Sackett, of Jamaica, in Queens County, on Nassau Island, in the Province of New York, Gentleman." It was executed a short time before his death. By it he bequeathed to his wife Mary the use of all of his furniture, plate, horse, chair and negroes. In case she prefers to reside in New York city instead of Jamaica, it is provided that she have the use of the designated part of his dwelling house on Queen Street. To his oldest son, Samuel, he gave 700, and to his son Augustus 500, on money. He then empowers his executors to dispose of his estate after his youngest child shall have arrived at the age of 21, "and after the termination of the present unhappy war," and provides that one equal fourth part of the proceeds be given to each of his four children, viz.: his sons Samuel, Richard and Augustus, and his daughter Sophia. The concluding clause reads: "Lastly I appoint my relation, Capt. Thomas Lawrence, of New York, and Christopher Smith and Gary Ludlow, of Jamaica, my executors." [Weygant, p 33, 65-66]

      From Tom Smith:
      Weygant lists the death date for # 94, Samuel Sackett as September 29, 1780,
      on page 33. At the end of his will, in [ ] is a note stating that[Note. -
      Mr. Samuel Sackett died at Jamaica, Sept. 30, 1780]. I know this is only one
      day in a bigger picture but someone must have thought it was important.
