      In 1869, Mr. Sackett made a trip to California and remained on the Pacific coast for about 7 years, when he returned to his old home at Windsor, Ohio; but after a short sojourn there engaged in oil producing, mainly in Clarion County, Penn., a business in which he was yet engaged in 1903. It is said that he is a part owner in fee or leasehold of many extensive tracts near Oil City, in which vicinity he has located and drilled no less than 27 wells in succession without striking a single "dry hole."

      Frederick Gleason Sackett

      Frederick Gleason Sackett was born in Windsor, Ashtabula County, O., on Aug. 4, 1847. Died Feb. 12, 1923 at his home, 332 North Raymond, Ave., Pasadena, California. He was the second son and fifth child of Chancey and Sarah Sackett.

      It is needless to say to those who knew the parents of Mr. Sackett, that they were among the most earnest and staunch christians of their time and place. All of their seven children had the great advantage of the influence of a home where vital christianity was the most prominent characteristic.

      In the fall of 1867 F. G. Sackett went to California by the Panama route. Landing in San Francisco he employed his time in various occupations, more prominent was his connection with a lumber firm of San Francisco, spending some years in the upper region of Humboldt Bay, cutting and shipping Red Wood lumber down the coast, to that city. After that he was employed for about two years by one of the daily papers [The San Francisco Chronicle] as traveling agent and correspondent. In that capacity he visited nearly every part of that great state. Being a great lover of nature and possessed of fine descriptive powers his letters were of wonderful interest. Not many years ago Mr. Sackett told the writer this was some of the most enjoyable work of his life.

      In the fall or winter of 1875 Mr. Sackett left that work for the purpose of returning east to visit his widowed mother, sisters, brothers and other relatives, and many friends and also to attend the much talked of Centennial Exposition to be held in 1876 in Philadelphia.

      In the summer of 1876 while on a visit to his brother, O. M. Sackett, who is a minister of the Gospel, and whose work was in Clarion Co., Pa., he was induced to go into the Office of the Oil Producing Company of M. E. Hess & Co., engaging for one month, fully intending to go back to his work in California in a short time. But this little trifling engagement for a month was a matter that changed the course of his whole life, for he not only remained in that office, but in due time he married the oldest daughter of Mr. Hess, who has in all these years proved to be a rich treasure indeed, so kind and faithful a helpmate indeed proving herself worthy the name, a noble self sacrificing wife and mother. Mr. Sackett soon after became a partner in the firm and was in the oil producing business for 35 years or more. His last oil operations being in the field of Illinois. About 12 years ago he closed out all his interest in the oil business and with his family moved to California, locating the city of Pasadena.

      The strictest integrity in business as in every thing else was the ruling characteristic of Mr. Sackett's life. It would be better for the world if men of his stamp could be multiplied more and more. I know that the big hearted generosity and trusting nature often made him the loser in his dealings with some men.

      In the year 1891 Mr. Sackett was converted and from that on he was an earnest christian. That event gave him a new view of life, as it will any other man. He loved his church and its various activities and gave it of his time and talent and means unsparingly. He lived and died in the assurance of meeting his Blessed Savior and the many loved ones and dwelling with them forever in the mansions above. He leaves to mourn their loss, his faithful wife, one daughter, two sons, who were all with him in his long sickness of more than a year and a half, caring for him as only a loving faithful wife and children can, and an only sister, Mrs. Emma L. Knapp, of Windsor, widow of the lamented Henry J. Knapp, she being the only remaining member of the family.
