      p. 541. 1835; SACKET
      Alexander Sacket, for long years one of the most prominent merchants in town, had his first glimpse of Cleveland in 1835-the year he became of age.

      He was the son of Augustus Sacket of Sacket's Harbor, N. Y. He had received a liberal education, and, though young, considerable mercantile training as well, therefore, well able to cope with the difficulties and obstacles inevitable in his new business enterprise.

      His first employment was with Peter Weddell on the corner of Superior and Bank streets, the site of the Rockefeller building. But it was not long before he branched out for himself and started a dry-goods store just west of his employer on the site of the Johnson House, and now also covered by the big sky-scraper. In this enterprise he was aided and advised by Peter Weddell, who delighted in the kindly help and encouragement of the young in their first start in business life.

      Alexander Sacket married Miss Hannah Johnson, born in the city and one year his junior. She was the daughter of the pioneer, Capt. Levi Johnson.

      She remained ever a quiet, domestic woman, caring little for events that did not include her husband and household of seven children. The family lived at 37 Ontario street, as early as 1837, and later removed to the south side of Euclid ave., near what is now East 67th street. The
      p. 542
      homestead was roomy, and well adapted for the happiness of a family of young people, and was surrounded by spacious grounds.

      Eventually, Mr. Sacket changed his business to the river front, where his warehouse long remained a landmark in that locality. And upon retiring from this, he gave his remaining years to real-estate transactions, in which his son-in-law, Mr. V. C. Taylor, was, and yet remains, a prominent and popular dealer.

      The children of Alexander and Harriet Johnson Sacket

      Margaret Sacket, married Virgil C.. Tayler, son of Hector and Polly Carter Tayler.,
      Harriet Sacket, m. Henry Rumbaugh of North Carolina.
      Mary Sacket, m. Charles Brown of Buffalo, N. Y.
      Levi Sacket, m. Rose Barcley, dau of Dr. J. T. and Hannah Barcley.
      Ellen Sacket, m. Dr. H. H. Baxter a practicing physician of the city.

      The only son of the family to reach manhood became an active business man in the community. He died in the prime of life.

      Alexander Sacket died in 1884, and Mrs. Sacket in 1897. The cemetery lot of the family is in Lake View.
