"Immediately after the death of his father, in 1746, he purchased an improved farm at New Milford, Conn., and removed with his family from Dover, Dutchess County, N. Y., to this farm, which became henceforth his permanent place of abode. It is recorded in Dutchess County records that he refused to qualify as one of the executors of his father's estate, not caring to become involved in several suits at law then pending relative to title to certain extensive tracts of land, covered by his father's will. Not much has been learned of the life of Mr. Sackett at New Milford beyond the
Page 112
fact that he was a well-to-do farmer. He seems to have left a will that was not recorded, but several documents are extant, including an inventory of personal property and a memorandum, evidently prepared for the person who was to draw his will, and which undoubtedly cover the bulk of its contents. From these we learn that among his possessions, in addition to several pieces of real estate which he directed divided between his wife Mary and his children Richard Sackett, Jr: Margery, wife of David Green, and Mary, wife of Israel Camfield, there was a "Great" Bible, a sword and belt, a gun, a service book, household goods, farming utensils, and some tools for coopering. Also that said will was dated Jan. 1, 1771, and proven April 2, 1771, and that the larger share of said estate went to his son Richard."

[Note: On page 60, Weygant has the year of his death as 1772. From the date of probate of his will it is obvious that the year was 1771. - T. King]

Richard married Mary-267sp.

They had the following children:

  63 F i Margery Sackett-709.
        Margery married David Green-709sp.

"Israel Canfield was in the American service, but his wife was a most active loyalist. It is said that important messages between the British in Canada, and their friends in this region, passed through her hands. "Aunt Ann :Hawley, the bolder of the two, usually carried food to her son Eli, while to "Molly Sacket,: as she was called, a more quiet woman, was entrusted the duty of transmitting his messages. She died June 18, 1817, in her 75th year."
        Mary married, 6 Apr 1758 in CT, Israel Canfield-710sp.
From Hemenway's Vermont Historical Gazetteer: Arlington, Vermont Bennington County Vol. 1 pg. 136;
"... Israel Canfield, who is supposed to have been a cousin of Nathan Canfield, married Mary Sacket and came to Arlington from Connecticut about the same time.  Their children were , Sacket, John, Isaac, Nathaniel and Anson Bassett.  Israel Canfield was in the American service ... [he died] March 20, 1827, aged 97.

of Dover, Dutchess County, N. Y., and Stephentown in the present County of Rensselaer, both in the state of New York

He is frequently mentioned in early records of Dutchess County in connection with sales of real estate. In a deed given by him to one Moses Harris for 3,497 acres of land that had been a part of his father's estate, he is referred to as "John Sackett of Dover, sole executor and youngest son of Capt. Richard Sackett." In Hunting's "History of Little Nine Partners," a facsimile of his signature is shown. After about 1760 he resided at Stephentown. - [Weygant]
Note: There is one unnamed child with a spouse whose surname is given. Because of the fact that the surname is given and the given name is not, I have assumed that this Sackett child is a daughter. - T. King

Sackett, Andrew P.; Ancestors and Descendants of Frederick Plummer Sackett; p. 62:
"...John Sackett, "Chirurgeon", and his wife Elizabeth Maston, who lived in Stephantown, Rensselaer County, N.Y."

        Margery married Josiah Beardsley-718sp on 6 Jan 1763.
  76 F ix Catherine Sackett-722.

Because of the fact that the surname of the spouse is given, I have assumed that the Sackett child is a daughter who was mentioned as Mrs. Wadsworth. - T. King

50. Samuel Sackett-280 (Joseph , Joseph , John , John ) was born in 1747 in New Haven, CT.. He died on 20 Aug 1816.

Samuel Sackett, 1747-1816, was born at New Haven, Conn. In 1767 he was married to Thankful Wood, daughter of John Wood, and in the same year settled on a 250 acre section of Big Nine Partners, in Dutchess County, N. Y., near Huns Lake. There had been an Indian settlement on the property and a number of their deserted wigwams were yet standing when he took possession. He constructed first, for himself and his bride, a substantial log cabin, but later erected a commodious farm house, in which all but the two oldest of his nine children were born, and all grew to maturity. Gradually, as his children became able to assist him, his wilderness section was transferred into a cleared and exceedingly productive farm, and at his death, which occurred Aug. 20, 1816, he was reputed a man of large means. Several of his children had died previous to his demise and were buried in a family plot on his farm, and there he too was laid to rest. His wife Thankful lived to her 92nd year. In the war of the Revolution he was an active patriot, serving through several campaigns in the Sixth Dutchess County Regment. By the terms of his will his Dutchess County farm passed to his sons Isaac and Joel.
