  • Notes 
    • James Sackett, M. D., 1756-1791, youngest child of (32) Rev. Samuel and Hannah Hazard Sackett, served both as a regimental and hospital surgeon during the War of the Revolution; after which he became a successful practitioner in Dutchess County. He died very suddenly from some mysterious and unascertained cause at a time when to all appearances he was in the enjoyment of vigorous health. He is reputed to have been "a close student, a ripe scholar, unmarried, and greatly respected by a large circle of friends." At the time of his death he was the Surgeon of Dutchess County Regiment commanded by Colonel John Drake. [Weygant, p. 95]
