      of Windsor, Astabula County, O.

      Mr. Sackett learned the trade of carpenter and joiner, which he followed for a number of years with success, when he purchased a farm to the cultivation of which he turned his attention, living first in a log house, and later building for his family a commodious frame dwelling. He was for many years an active abolitionist, and his house was known as one of the stations on the so-called "underground railroad," by means of which runaway slaves were conveyed in safety from their southern plantation homes to Canada.

      Chauncey Sackett
      Birth: Apr. 28, 1798; Paris, Oneida County, New York, USA
      Death: Oct. 9, 1863; Windsor, Ashtabula County, Ohio, USA

      CHAUNCY SACKET was born in, or near, Paris, Oneida Co., N.Y., in the "Whitestone Country" as it was then called, on Apr. 28th., 1798. He removed to Ohio with the family in 1801, where he spent the remainder of his life, the early part of which, especially his boyhood days, were full of many thrilling and interesting incidents, most of which, like hundreds of such, have passed with those of that time, into oblivion, or beyond recall. But a few have been retained by record, and by handing down through memory from the earlier to the present generations, details of which will be given later in this sketch. In his early life, he learned the trade of carpenter and joiner, as it was then called, which he followed to some extent the most of his life. He was very thorough in all his work, taking great care that it should be solid and perfect in every respect.
      He was without doubt , one of the most expert hewers of timber that the world ever produced. Many testimonials and evidences of this remain to this day in a great number of buildings still standing, built by him in Ashtabula, and adjoining counties, where he did most of his contracting.
      These hewn timbers can be found in them that are as straight, square, smooth, and true as if planed with a jointer. Very seldom can there be found the least roughness or a "score hack." He accumulated sufficient means to purchase a farm of about sixty-five acres, joining his brother Gery's on the West, and lying on the West side of the North and South road, about one mile due North of Windsor Mills. In later years, the old diagonal plank road from Painesville, O. to Bloomfield, O. out through the North East corner of this, and the South West corner of his brother Gery's farm.
      When purchased, but a small portion of this farm was cleared, and a small log house stood on the South East corner, near the North and South road. The old well that was dug for water for this house still remains, as does a portion of the old orchard planted just South of it on the corner of the farm. In 1826, having some land cleared there, he built a large frame barn on the North East corner of the place, desiring it as the permanent location for his residence, which he built some time later.
      On Oct. 23d., 1828, he married Miss Sarah Gladding, daughter of John Gladding, of Windsor, Ashtabula Co., Ohio. She was born Aug. 7th, 1811, in the same township. They had seven children. {NOTE: I didn't transcribe their names here, because I know them; the eldest three were Hannah Ruaney, Orsemus Marvin, and Mary Augusta, and the youngest four are mentioned again below}
      During the Fall or early Winter of 1828, while putting down a new "puncheon" floor in this log house on his farm, he got a sever cut on the knee, either with the corner of the "broad-axe" or "adze," which laid him up the better part of the Winter, and came near losing him the use of the limb. In the Spring of 1829, we think it was, they began housekeeping in this little log house, and here were born their first three children: Hannah, Orsemus, and Mary. In 1843, he built on the North East corner of the farm, near the frame barn before spoken of, a large wood residence. This was built in a style original with himself. He conceived the idea of sawing lumber one inch thick and four inches wide, which was laid from the sills, one board upon another and firmly nailed at about one foot apart at alternate edges of the board, so that when completed, a solid wall four inches thick for both outside and cross walls was made. From the stand-point of modern architecture and building, one could hardly conceive of a more laborious or expensive manner of construction. This of course was sided outside and plastered inside, and when completed, made one o the firmest and strongest buildings possible to construct, and very warm in winter, and entirely free from all corner and side posts, and heavy timbers that had to be cased up, leaving projections and jobs in the rooms, as was the mode and style of construction and building in those days, and which was always a great source of annoyance to him, and a matter that we can hardly appreciate in these days of modern, light construction and architecture.
      In this house were born their four youngest children: Lucy Emerette, Frederick Gleason, Emily Francina, and John Francis. Chauncy Sackett, being of a remarkable strong constitution, withstood the hardships and exposures of the greater part of his life with wonderful strength and energy. He took great interest in all political questions and issues of the day, especially in the question of slavery which stirred and shook society, the church and the government, during the latter part of his life. He was a member of, and took active part in, the workings of the great and historic system of "Under Ground Rail Road" that did such effective work in the years just prior to the great civil war. Though too old to take active part himself, he did all that was in his power to do, to aid the cause of freedom and right, and watched the conflict with almost breathless interest up to the very last days of his life, but did not live to see its close. During the latter years of his life, being somewhat broken in health, he suffered much from disease; his wife and family being sick a great deal, and especially his wife, who never enjoyed the best of health, together with financial embarassments seemed to weigh him down, and he gradually failed until the summer of 1863, when he became quite unable to be about; and on the 9th. day of Oct., 1863, died of pneumonia of the lungs. His remains were followed to the last resting place at Windsor Corners cemetery, by one of the largest circle of relatives, friends, and acquaintances that had ever been witnessed at that place. The funeral service being preached by Rev. D. S. Kinney, of the Wesleyan M.E. church. He was for years a member of the M.E. church, experiencing religion at a "Watch Meeting" New Year's Eve at the center of Windsor, and was a member of the first M.E. church ever started in that township. But after the agitation of the slavery question, and the organization of the Wesleyan M.E. church, he joined it, with which he remained to his death, being through his whole life an exemplary Christian.
      Honorable and upright dealings with his fellow men being one of the highest objects of his life.
