  • Notes 
    • Colonel Niram Sackett, 1797-1869, was married, Sept. 30, 1824, at Washington, Dutchess County, N. Y., to Catherine Thorn, daughter of John T. Thorn and his wife Esther. He was born at Stanford, Dutchess County, N. Y., and acquired an academic education at the Hudson, N. Y., academy. From his early boyhood he manifested unusual interest in military affairs. In 1822 he was commissioned, by Governor Clinton, captain of militia company of his town. Two years later Governor Yates promoted him to the colonelcy of a Dutchess County regiment, which he commanded at the reception given General Lafayette at Paughkeepsie in 1824.

      At an early age Mr. Sackett engaged in mercantile business at Mabbettsville in Dutchess County, in which he continued until 1829, when he removed with his father-in-law, John I. Thorn, to LaGrange in Cattaraugus Flats, now Irving, Chautaugua County, N. Y. The year following his arrival at LaGrange he was elected Justice of the Peace, and subsequently a judge of the Court of Common Pleas, both of which offices he held for a number of years.

      He died at Irving, of heart disease, Oct. 22, 1869. An obituary notice accompanying the announcement of his sudden death contains the following summary of his character and public life at Irving: "Judge Sackett was affable and courteous in his manner, decided in his convictions. He was a man of strict integrity, had a comprehensive mind, and was scrupulously just; evincing in his official character those qualities which made him the able and just judge. His principal occupation during his residence in this county was farming, in which he was successful, leaving his family amply provided for. His death was deeply lamented by the entire community." [Weygant, p. 266-267]

      History of Chautauqua Co, NY From Its 1st Settlement to the Present Time By Andrew Young, 1875
      Hanover; Page 423/a486
      NIRAM Sackett was born October 3 I, 1797, at Stanford, Dutchess Co., NY. He was married at Washington, in that county, Sept. 30, 1824, to Catharine Thorn, who was born Dec. 19, 1806. He was commissioned by Gov. DeWitt Clinton a captain of the militia in 1822; and by Gov. Joseph C. Yates as colonel in 1824. He was called out with his regiment to attend at the reception of Gen. La Fayette at Poughkeepsie in 1824. At an early age he commenced the mercantile business at Mabbettsville, which he continued until 1829, when he removed with his father-in-law, John I. Thorn, to Chautauqua Co., and settled on Cattaraugus Flats, [now Irving.] He was elected for several terms a justice of the peace in Hanover, and was for many years an associate judge of the county courts. He died at Irving, the 22d of Oct. 1869, of disease of the heart, aged 72. In the obituary notice accompanying the announcement of his death, he is represented as " affable and courteous in his manner, decided in his convictions, a man of strict integrity and of comprehensive mind, and scrupulously just; evincing, in his judicial character, those qualities of mind and heart which made him both the able and the just judge." His principal business during his residence in the county was farming, in which he was successful; leaving his family abundantly provided for. His death was deeply lamented by his family and the community generally.
      Judge Niram Sackett had 6 children:
      1. Jehiel, who was born Sept. 15, 1825, and was married July 3, 1863, to Laura Sackett, by whom he had 2 children: Isabella, born April 16, 1864; and Marcus, born Sept. 21, 1865.
      2. John J., born April 5, 1827, and married, June 10, 1458, to Henrietta Harrison. They had 2 children: Cora, born Sept. 10, 1859; and Sarah, born Aug. 12, 1862. Mrs. Sackett died Feb. 3, 1863; and Mr. S. married, Oct. 6, 1868, Jane Watts, of North East, PA. They have a daughter, Ida T., born Nov. 20, 1873.
      3. Joseph T, born March 4, 1829; married, Nov. 18, 1872, to Mrs. Sarah M. Canfield. He is a graduate of the Law School at Albany, and resides in Brooklyn.

      History of Chautauqua County NY (1894) By Hon. Oben Edson 1821-1822;
      Page 633-634
      John I. Thorn and family and Niram Sackett and family, from Dutchess County, came to Portland in 1829, and to Hanover in 1830 and located at La Grange. Thorn bought of Squire Ephraim Hall lot 11 C. V., and Sackett lots 47, 48, C. V. of Holland Land Company and of C. A. H. McGregor, a nephew of Ellicott, lots 43, 49, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 57, and 58, C. V., and lot 59 of Sottle. Sackett afterward owned the two sawmills on the creek, and carried on lumbering and merchandising there along with his farming. A large part of his lands he sold afterwards to John J. and E. B. Guernsey. He was elected for several terms justice of the peace, and was for a number of years one of the judges of the court of common pleas. He died at Irving in 1869 aged 72. He was " affable and courteous in his manner, decided in his convictions, a man of strict integrity and of comprehensive mind, and scrupulously just; evincing in his judicial character those qualities of mind and heart which made him both the able and the just judge." His children were Jehiel, John J., Joseph T., Marcus, Semantha and Niram, Jr.

      During the winter of 1850-1 on that road Judge Sackett kept over night for drovers 18,000 hogs, besides great numbers of cattle and sheep. He kept no hotel, but his farm, like many others, was fitted for keeping droves, and this business furnished a home market for his hay and grain.
