2878.  Frances Adelaide Sackett, of Hartford, Conn., daughter of (1160) Loren and Frances Ann Smith Sackett, enjoys the distinction of being the first woman in America to serve as president of a veteran regimental organization.  The Hartford Daily Times, in issue of Sept. 14, 1899, devotes considerable space to an account of annual reunion of the Eleventh Connecticut Veterand, from which we copy the following items:

Miss F. Adelaide Sackett of this city was unanimously elected president of the regimental association.  This course was taken on the motion of General Horne.  It was in reciginition of the fact that Miss Sackett's brother, Captain William H. Sackett, gave up his life for the Union cause at Petersburg.  The election was most enthusiastic.  Captain Quein spoke of the bravery of the captain, whom he considered one of the most heroic of Connecticut soldiers. He was glad that the sister of Captain Sackett had been elected president.

Miss Sackett, the new president of the association, has been identified with Grand Army work in this city since the inception of the order, and is widely known throughout the state on account of her identity with the Woman's Relief Corps.  She is the past treasurer and president of Robert O. Tyler Corps and has held the office of Junior department president and department treasurer of the State, also aide on the staff of the National President.  Miss Sackett is the receiving clerk in the office of the Hartford Street Railway Company, and possesses executive ability of a high order.  The election came to her totally unexpected, and her effort to escape the office was overruled by unanimous vote of the old soldiers, who remembered her brother's courage and sacrifice on the field with the proudest comradeship.

The Times of Mar, 26, in a review of the Hartford Street Railway, says:

Page 318

Miss F. Adelaide Sackett, who has been with the company for twenty-one years, is the senior attache of the office corps. She holds the position of chief receiving clerk, which involves the original custody of all moneys turned in by the conductors. Miss Sackett began her business career in the actuarial department of the Insurance Commissioner's office, receiving her appointment under the first commissioner, Dr. George S. Miller, now superintendent of agencies of Phoenix Mutual Life. Miss Sackett has a thorough knowledge of business and has met every duty in the positions which she has occupied with competency and success.

Her business qualifications have demonstrated in more instances than can be pointed out woman's fitness to engage in the active pursuits of life.

2880.  JOSEPH TAINTOR SACKETT, 1839-, of Vernon, Conn., Amboy, Ill., and Oscar, Mo., son of (1160) Loren and Frances Ann Smith Sackett, was married, Feb. 26, 1866, to ELISABETH L. CROCKER, daughter of DAVID H. CROCKER and his wife JULIA E. CUSHMAN. Mr. Sackett is a veteran of the Civil War, having served three years as a non-commissioned officer and color bearer of the 13th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Infantry. He participated in the battles of Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Ringold Gap, and many other engagements. He was mustered out of the service June 18, 1864, the day that his brother, Capt. William H. Sackett, of the 11th Connecticut Volunteers, was killed in front of Petersburgh, Va.

2882.  CAPT. WILLIAM HENRY SACKETT, 1841-1864, of Hartford, Conn., son of (1160) Loren and Frances Ann Smith Sackett, was married to MRS. ANNIE WILLIAMS (SUMMERS), of Portsmouth, Va. The official record of his military service reads in part as follows:

"Wm. H. Sackett, first enlisted Apr. 25, 1861; mustered in as private Co. A, 3d Conn. Inf., May 11, 1861; mustered out Aug. 12, 1861. Mustered in as Second Lieut. Co. I, 11th Conn. Inf., Dec. 14, 1861; promoted to First Lieut., June 2, 1862; promoted to Captain, Oct. 22, 1862. Killed at Petersburgh, Va., June 18, 1864."
Page 319

He was an active participant in the battles of First Bull Run. Newberne, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburgh, seige of Suffolk, Cold Harbor, Petersburgh, and several minor engagements. Colonel S. B. Horne, in an address delivered on battlefield of Antietam, on occasion of dedication of Connecticut state monument, said:

"One of our best and most loving captains was stricken down June 18, 1864. I refer to Captain William H. Sackett. . . . Upon this field, by his cool bravery and gallantry he was at once promoted. . . . He fell in the din of battle, a heroic leader among heroic men. We loved him because of his moral life, his excellent character and habits, his strict discipline, and cordiality of friendship. His military history illustrates a life of devotion to his country, fidelity to his oath of office, courage in the face of danger, and a noble example in the discharge of his duties."
2883.  WILLIAM LOREN SACKETT, 186--?-, son of (1160) Loren and Sarah Downey Sackett, was married, in 1887, to IDA I. BROWN, of Springfield, Ill. The place of birth of William L. Sackett was Holyoke, Mass., and there the first three years of his life were spent. The next five years were spent with his parents at Springfield, Mass. He then went west and for several years resided with his brother, James T., and still later resided with his sister at Hartford, Conn. When old enough to do something toward his own support, he secured a position in a job printing office, continuing at a night school studies which he had previously been pursuing in a Hartford grammar school. This he continued until his strength failed him and a nearly fatal illness ensued. In 1881 he went to Decota and spent a year in ranching and seeking health, after which he went to Illinois, and located at Springfield in that state, where he secured employment in a job printing office and completed the trade. Later he took up newspaper reporting and was employed for a time on the State Journal at Springfield, of which he became night editor. In 1884 he became the capital correspondent for the Chicago Herald, and still later served on the staff of the Chicago Herald, the New York Tribune, the Philadelphia Press, and St. Louis Globe-Democrat. He also served at different times as private secretary for sev-
