Hon Nathan Sackett, 1720-177-, Greenwich, Conn., was married about 1739, to Anne Bush, daughter of Justus Bush, Jr., oldest son of Justus Bush and his wife Anne Smith, of Rye, Westchester County, NY. Anne Bush Sackett died about 1746 and Nathaniel Sackett was married to his second wife, Elisabeth, who died May 1, 1757. On May 10, 1760 he was married to his third wife, widow Sarah Lockwood. For a year or two previous to his first marriage he resided in New York City, and was in business there for several thereafter. During said period he was a member of Capt. Van Horne's militia company. About 1753 he established his permanent home at Greenwich, and from 1756 to 1760, inclusive, represented that town in the General Assembly of Conn. And from 1757 to 1760, inclusive, he was a Justice of Peace for the County of Fairfield. The records of St. John's Church, Stamford, Conn., show that on Jan. 22, 1758, "John, Elisabeth, William, Henry, Charity and Mary - the last two twins - children of Nathaniel and Elisabeth Sackett of Horseneck in Greenwich," were baptized there. Justus Sackett was the oldest and may have been the only child of Nathaniel Sackett and his first wife, Anne Bush. There is some uncertainty as to which of his wives was the mother of any one of his children not mentioned above.

Nathaniel married (1) Anne Bush-118sp1 daughter of Justus Bush Jr. and Anne Smith about 1739. Anne died about 1746.

Anne Bush, daughter of Justus Bush, Jr., oldest son of Justus Bush and his wife Anne Smith, of Rye, Westchester County, NY.

Jan Bosch, the colonist ancestor of Anne Bush Sackett, was a native of the "Maory of Bosch," an ancient city of the Netherlands. His name is first met with in the records of New Amsterdam as one of a company that arrived there on the ship Fox in the month of August, 1662. These records show that his home, of place of abode, at the date on which he engaged passage on the Fox was "Westphalen." But he was accompanied by several families coming direct from "Maory of Bosch." This Jan Bosch was a man of affairs in New Amsterdam. Almost immediately after his arrival he became a prominent householder, and for a decade a merchant, having frequent business with the courts; sometimes as a defendant and sometimes as plaintiff.

Albertus Bosch, son of above, who is described in early records as a "Sword cutler of New Amsterdam," had his residence and place of business on "the south side of Stone Street, east of Broad Street."

Justus Bosch, son of above mentioned Albertus, anglicized his family name by spelling it "B-u-s-h," and his descendants, with but a few exceptions, have followed his example. After New Amsterdam was re-christened New York City, Justus Bush became a prominent merchant there. He also became one of the original proprietors of the town of Rye, Westchester County, NY. On Feb. 23, 1697, he was married in the "Dutch Church," in New York, to Annekin (Anne) Smith.

Justus Bush, Jr., of Rye, NY., and Greenwich, Conn., oldest son of above mentioned Justus and Annekin Smith Bush, and the father of Anne Bush, the first wife of Nathaniel Sackett, at one time was the owner of a grist mill in the town of Greenwich. Justus Bush, Sr., in his will, which is dated June 24, 1737, and probated Dec. 4, 1739, makes provision, first of all, for his oldest son, Justus, Jr., in language as follows:

I , Justus Bush, of Rye, in Westchester County, N. Y., merchant being in good health. I leave to my oldest son Justus, £5, over and above £500 that I have given him, and what more shall come to him by this will, in full bar of all claim as heir at law.

In a clause following he provides that his interest in a copper mine in Farmington, Conn., together with all his land in Newtown, shall belong to all of his children.

In Weygant's note for his half brother, 114-Richard Sackett:
"In original papers at Fairfield, Conn., is one looking to the distribution of his estate among his next of kin, who are given as "heirs of Nathaniel Sackett, dec'd, Elisabeth Aak, Abigail Hubbell, dec'd, Mary Lockwood, dec'd, and Joseph Sackett." It would appear from this document, which is dated Mar. 7, 1768, that of his brothers and sisters, or rather half brothers and sisters, only Elisabeth Aak and Joseph Sackett were then living."

Mrs. Lamb, in her "History of New York City," says: "John Alsop was a importing merchant and accumulated a handsome fortune. He took an active part in the patriotic measure of the New York merchants; was, in 1770, one of the Committee of Inspection to enforce the Non-Importation Agreement; was, in 1774, a member (and deputy chairman) of the Committee of Fifty-one, chosen to unite the Colonies in measures of resistance, and the same year was chosen delegate to the first Continental Congress.

He returned to New York after the war and was an active and useful member of society until his death in 1794."

Riker, in his records of "The Alsop Family," differs with Mrs. Lamb, and says that John Alsop "was not in Congress, as has been supposed, when the independence of the American Colonies was declared, but was, at the time, a member of the New York Convention, and, on the adoption of the above measures by the latter body he resigned his seat.
