1282.  Isaac Sackett, 1798-1881, of Westfield, Mass., Buffalo, N. Y., Providence, R. I., and Durand, Ill., son of (571) John and Lucinda Mosely Sackett, was married at Newport, R. I., Dec. 29, 1822, to Mary Johnson, 1808-1869, daughter of John Johnson and his wife Mary Lyon.  In 1872 he was married at Beloit, Wis., to Mrs. Ella Gage Taylor, daughter of John Gage and his wife Bethania Randall.  He was born at Westfield, Mass., and when a young man engaged for a considerable period in traveling from farm house to farm house, and from village to village, through New England and the western portion of New York State, purchasing from farmers and others, sheepskins, to be used in the manufacture of drum heads.  Tiring of this business, he settled for a time at Buffalo, N. Y., and there learned the cabinet making trade, becoming an expert workman in that line.  From Buffalo he went to Providence and there became foreman of a furniture factory, conducted by Rhodes G. Allen.  A few years later he became associated with Judge Branch in the manufacture of furniture, in same city, under the firm name of Sackett & Branch, holding meantime the office of Justice of the Peace, and giving some attention to surveying.  After a time the firm moved their business to Brooklyn, N. Y., locating on Fulton Street, where they opened salesrooms and became dealers as well as manufacturers.  Meeting with gratifying success, they soon determined to remove to New York City, where they established warerooms at 322 Broadway and gave their principal attention to buying and selling, rather than to manufacturing.  Here their business rapidly increased and their future prospects were most encouraging, when they were overtaken and carried under by the great tidal wave of disaster, known as the financial panic of 1837.  Mr. Sackett then removed from New York City to Winnebago County, Ill.  There fortune again attended him and he speedily became and remained to the day of his death, a prominent, wealthy and greatly esteemed citizen.  It is a most unusual fact that had his oldest son Isaac lived, he would have been 53 years of age when the youngest son, Pomeroy, was born.

Page 233

editors and proprietors of the Jamestown Journal, which paper, in 1860, was issued under the firm name of Sackett & Bishop.  In 1862, in company with Hon. Reuben E. Fenton, he visited Washington and the seat of war.  This visit resulted in his returning to his home in an advanced stage of typhoid, from which he did not recover.  A close friend, in writing of him a short time after his death, says:  "His like it were hard to find; firm to the truth as steel, honest and refined gold, unwavering as the orb of a planet in the defence of justice and the right, a friend whom you could trust as your right hand, a writer, condensed, sharp and terse, crowding an ocean of thought into a nutshell of a sentence . . . The Journal, under his hand, was a model of pure and elevated thought and sentiment, independent and fearless, considerate and courteous, with a definite purpose to which personal and pecuniary aims were subordinate, viz.: the lifting up of the community to a higher plane of intelligence and morality."

"Died, at his home, south of Brooklyn, Thursday morning, Sept. 3, 1896, of apoplexy, Edwin Sackett, age 73 years, 4 months and 28 days.  Deceased was born near Buffalo, N. Y., April, 6, 1823, and left the state of his nativity ten years later, locating in Berien County, Mich.,  where in the year 1850, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Hall.  By this union twelve children were born, ten of whom, with the faithful wife, survive to mourn the loss of a loving father and
Page 238
husband.  In 1855 he moved to Poweshick County, Iowa, where he resided until his death.  He was one of the pioneer settlers of this county and was known far and wide for his cordial hospitality.  He was a man whose honesty and integrity were never questioned; a good neighbor a firm friend, and perfectly upright in his dealings with his fellowmen.  For his many traits of character he was esteemed by a large circle of friends.  He was industrious from youth and provided a good home for his family, to whom he was greatly attached.  His last illness was of short duration.  He arose in the morning and was engaged in the performance of his ordinary duties when taken sick.  He continued to grow rapidly worse.  All that human hands could do was of no avail, and within two hours he passed into the valley of the shadow of death.  The funeral services were held at his late home Saturday, at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. S. Knight, after which the remains were laid at rest in the I. O. O. F. Cemetery.  The funeral was largely attended by friends and neighbors, 123 teams being at the house.  There were thirty-three grand children, twenty-nine of whom were present at the funeral.  The family have the sympathy of all in this great hour of sorrow."

Niles, Mich., and there served an apprenticeship as a wheelwright.  He subsequently worked at his trade in Chicago, Ottawa, and Peru in Ill., and at St. Louis and Weston in Missouri.  In 1851 he engaged in the wagon making business on his own account at St. Joseph, Mo., making a specialty of fitting out trains for emigrant parties, who were taking the overland route to the Pacific slope.  In 1852, with his own teams and wagons, he joined one of these companies, consisting of 33 men, one woman and one child, and journeyed with them through the Indian country, over the Salt Lake route, down the Humbolt, up Carson, and over the mountains to Lake Tahoe, reaching Sacramento in the month of August.  There, after trying his hand at mining, he again engaged in wagon making, but soon removed to Napa, Cal., where, after making a return trip to New York State and a prospecting tour through Northern California, he settled down to the life of a farmer, at which occupation he, in 1906, was still engaged.
