Page 267

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."

1764.  Harry Sackett, 1800-1874, farmer, of Hull's Mills, Dutchess County, N. Y., son of (731) Samuel W. and Anna Hammond Sackett, was married, first to Catherine Pulver, 1808-1839, and several years after her death to Mariah Pulver.  They were the daughters of William W. Pulver, 1773-1861, and his wife Christean

Page 269

Mullins, 1780-1826, and the granddaughter of Wandell Pulver, 1735-1826, and his wife Susanna, and the great-granddaughter of Peter Pulver, 1708-1794, and his wife Catherine, and the great-great-granddaughters of Johannis Pulver of Livingston Manor.

Johannis Pulver was one of the early settlers of what is now Columbia County, N. Y.  His name does not appear in any of the recorded lists of emigrants from the Palatinate, but is first met with in a record of freeholders residing in the northern part of Livingston Manor in 1720.  This circumstance, with the added fact that several of his descendants intermarried with members of the Knickerbocker family, would indicate that he was a Dutchman from plucky little dike-protected Holland, rather than a pious German from the land of Luther on the banks of the Rhine.

Peter Pulver, at an uncertain date, settled on a section of land he had purchased in the Little Nine Pardners tract, which lies to the southward of and adjoining the Livingston Manor tract.  The site where Peter Pulver erected his dwelling on his extensive farm, is a little over a mile distant from the village of Pine Plains, on the road leading to Pulver's Corners.  Near this road and but a short distance from site of above mentioned dwelling, there is now sadly neglected family burial plot in which there is a well preserved gravestone bearing this inscription:

In memory of
Mr. Peter Pulver
He died May 29, 1794,
In ye 85 year
of his age.

Wandell Pulver and his son William W. Pulver were prominent Dutchess County farmers who tilled with success their large and fertile farms near Pulver's Corners, where their descendants still reside.
