CHARLES SACKET, b. February 09, 1780 [B:89].
In 1824, Mr. Sackett determined to leave New England with his family and find a new place of abode in the southwest. From Boston he traveled first by water to Philadelphia, and from thence, after a short sojourn, by wagons to Pittsburgh, where he secured passage on a flat-boat, which carried the family down the Ohio River to Harrison's Creek. From there they, after a short period, again moved in a flat-boat on down the Ohio to Mauckport, from which point they journeyed in wagons through the wilderness to Corydon, Ind., where they purchased a farm; but a little later removed to Louisville, KY., which became their permanent home. In 1849, Mr. Sackett revisited Westfield, and died and was buried there. [Weygant, p. 144-145]
Charles married Sarah Woods on 21 Oct 1810. (Sarah Woods died after 1850.)
