Sackett, of Cleveland, O., to whom it was recently presented by a kinsman whom he visited at Poultney, VT.  This Richard Sackett is not shown by public records to have been especially active in public affairs.  On the death of his father, in 1771, he came into possession of several pieces of real estate at New Milford, including the homestead farm.  In 1775 he disposed of the last piece of real estate at New Milford, and became a permanent resident of Arlington, VT., where he was an active member of a military company commanded by Capt. Ebenezer Wallace, in the ranks of which he participated in one or more campaigns during the war of the Revolution.  He died at Arlington in the spring of 1789, survived by his wife Martha, three sons and a daughter.  On June 24, following, Mrs. Sackett gave birth to a second daughter.

Thomas Benedict (or Bennydick), the colonist ancestor of Martha Benedict Sackett, was a native of Notinghamshire, Eng-

Page 164

land, and came to Massachusetts Bay in 1638, and there married Mary Bridgman.  They lived for several years at Southold, and in 1662 resided at Jamaica, L.I.  Still later they were at Norwalk, Conn., where Mr. Benedict was made a deacon if the church.

John Benedict, one of the nine children of Thomas and Mary Bridgman Benedict, was born at Southold, L.I., and removed with his parents to Norwalk, Conn., where on Nov. 11, 1670, he was married to Phebe Gregory.  He was there sworn a freeman in 1680, succeeded his father as deacon, and from 1689 to 1699 held the office of selectman.

Joseph Benedict, one of the seven children of John and Phebe Gregory Benedict, was born at Norwalk, Conn., where he was married to his first wife Anne, previous to whose death, in 1716, they removed to Ridgefield, Conn.  There on Mar. 21, 1720, he was married to his second wife, Mary.

Jonathan Benedict, 1723-1800, son of Joseph Benedict and his wife Mary, was married to Lucy Castle, who was the mother of his ten oldest children, and who died at North Milford, VT.  Mr. Benedict shortly after the death of his wife Lucy, moved to Manchester and was there married to widow Margary Seelye (Pinnock).

Martha Benedict, 1756-1812, eldest daughter of Jonathan and Lucy Castle Benedict, some two years after the death of her husband, Richard Sackett, in 1789, was married to Jason Kellogg.

729.  Skene Douglas Sackett, 1765-1852, of New Milford, Conn., and Astabula County, Ohio, youngest child of (272)[sic] [271] Josiah Crego Sackett, was married about 1788 to Hannah Saxton, of Waterbury, Conn.  Both of his parents having died while he was quite young, he was sent to live with a Mr. Bull, who had married one of his mother's sisters.

According to family tradition he was a strong, healthy lad, who in appearance was a full grown man before he had completed his 14th year.  The records of "Connecticut in the Revolution: show that

"Skene Douglas, residence N. Milford, enlisted Jan. 23, 1780, for three years, in Captain Samuel Comstock's Company, of Colonel Heman Swift's Second Regiment of the Connecticut Line."  Also that
"Skene Douglas, a member of Captain Joseph Allen Wright's Company, of Second Regiment of Connecticut Line, commanded of Colonel Heman Swift, was paid from January 31, 1781."  And also that
"Skene Douglas Sackett, a Connecticut Revolutionary soldier, residing in the State of Ohio, was a pensioner, under the law of 1818."
The traditional explanation of the dropping of his surname when he enlisted is that he hoped by so doing to prevent his uncle discovering his whereabout and securing his discharge on account of his being under the prescribed age, the inference being that his uncle was a Tory.

The following additional records relating to him were furnished the compiler of this volume by Mr. F. J. Sackett, of Cincinnati,

Ohio, one of his lineal descendants:  "Skene Douglas Sackett removed from Connecticut to the Whitestone country, as it was then called, in 1798, where he rented a farm on the reservation of the Brotherton Indians, in Oneida County, N. Y.  About 1800 he came to Thompson, Geauga County, Ohio . . . . and lived on land that is now a portion of the city of Painesville, until about 1803, when he removed so the township of Mesopotamia, Trumbell County, Ohio, where he lived some two years, removing from there to Windsor, Astabula County, Ohio, where he lived the balance of his life, dying June 9, 1852."
