He was born in Oswego County, N. Y., and when eighteen years of age accompanied his parents to their new home in Chautauqua County, N. Y. Their journey thither, made in the winter of 1838, on sleds, was attended with hardships and rendered exceedingly tedious by reason of severe snow storms and unbroken roads. After the family became settled in their Chautauqua County home, he attended Allegheny College, Meadville, Pa., and later was principal of the Meadville Academy, which was the preparatory school for Allegheny College. While this vocation was agreeable to his taste, his health was such as to oblige him to abandon it and seek out-of-doors employment, and he served an apprenticeship at the carpenter and joiner trade and became a successful contractor and builder. In connection with this business he operated a planing mill. Many of his larger contracts were in connection with the building of the Atlantic & Great Western Railroad. Requiring additional capital as his business increased he took a partner and for several years the business was conducted under the firm name of Sackett & Thomas. The greater part of his adult life was spent at Meadville. He, however, made frequent and sometimes prolonged visits to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Waters, at Nashville, Tenn. He was from early life a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, gave liberally of his means toward its organized benevolent and aggressive work, especially toward the building of the First Church and the State Street Church in Meadville. He was also for many years an efficient class leader of that denomination.

Page 367

graduated from the theological school of Yale College in 1835. For fifteen years after graduation he labored as a preacher and pastor in central and western New York. He then, partly through the in fluence of his wife, who had been a teacher, became deeply interested in the higher education of women, and applied himself to the work of stimulating public interest on that subject. He earnestly advocated the erection and endowment of a college for women that should afford equal advantages to those so long provided for men, and devoted not a little of his time and energy to securing, by public and private subscriptions, funds for that purpose. He was in fact the pioneer in that class of effort, which in six years resulted in the building of Elmira College, the first institution of its kind.
