      Floyd, I received this answer much quicker than I anticipated. It also confirms the death date your GGrandmother had written. I will send for a death cert. from PA now that I have the date.

      Dear Mr. Sackett,

      Fortunately for you, we are a paid staff in the Library and Musuem, and part of our job is to answer these genealogical questions.

      There was only one Masonic home (now called Villages) at the time William was around. It was, and still is, in Elizabethtown (about halfway between Lancaster and Harrisburg). The others, in Sewickley, Warminster, and Lafayette Hill, are all quite new (1990's on up).

      The Masonic record of William W. Sackett is, as shown in Membership Book 3-2, p. 355: Age: 37; Occupation: Carpenter; Residence: Wilkes-Barre; All Degrees in Landmark Lodge No. 442 (Wilkes-Barre): Entered Apprentice November 12, 1873; Fellow Craft January 14, 1874, Master Mason February 25, 1874. Suspended for non-payment of dues December 9, 1912; Shown in Membership Book 16, p. 330, he was restored to good standing (meaning he paid back dues), and re-elected to membership (admitted into his same lodge as a Master Mason) April 10, 1914; Age: 78; Residence: Elizabethtown. Died: 1915 December 16. That's it: a full record. No other information.

      Best,
      Glenys A. Waldman
      Librarian

      William W. Sackett, 1836-c1915, is my 2nd Great Grandfather and lived in Wilkes-Barre, PA. I have just received information that he was in a Masonic Home when he died. The information is that it was in Elizabeth, PA. Looking at a map, Elizabeth is near Pittsburgh with a Home there and in Sewickley. I also saw on your website that you have a facility in Elizabethtown, PA. I don't know if any or all of these facilities were in operation around 1915. In order to live in a Masonic Home I assume you have to be a member of the Masons. What I would like to establish is whether William W. Sackett was a Freemason, and if he passed away while in a Masonic Home and the date he died.
      I understand the number of requests you must get and also realize the volunteer basis of your position. As a volunteer in several organizations myself, I understand the demands on your time. Any efforts to locate information are greatly appreciated. If there are any costs associated with finding or copying information, I am more that willing to cover them.
      Sincerely,
      Thomas C. Smith
