Weygant, p. 113, 167-168
of New Milford, Conn., and Astabula County, Ohio

Conn. Both of his parents having died while he was quite young, he was sent to live with a Mr. Bull, who had married one of his mother's sisters.

According to family tradition he was a strong, healthy lad, who in appearance was a full grown man before he had completed his 14th year. The records of "Connecticut in the Revolution: show that:

"Skene Douglas, residence N. Milford, enlisted Jan. 23, 1780, for three years, in Captain Samuel Comstock's Company, of Colonel Heman Swift's Second Regiment of the Connecticut Line." Also that "Skene Douglas, a member of Captain Joseph Allen Wright's Company, of Second Regiment of Connecticut Line, commanded of Colonel Heman Swift, was paid from January 31, 1781." And also that "Skene Douglas Sackett, a Connecticut Revolutionary soldier, residing in the State of Ohio, was a pensioner, under the law of 1818."

The traditional explanation of the dropping of his surname when he enlisted is that he hoped by so doing to prevent his uncle discovering his whereabout and securing his discharge on account of his being under the prescribed age, the inference being that his uncle was a Tory.

The following additional records relating to him were furnished the compiler of this volume by Mr. F. J. Sackett, of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of his lineal descendants: "Skene Douglas Sackett removed from Connecticut to the Whitestone country, as it was then called, in 1798, where he rented a farm on the reservation of the Brotherton Indians, in Oneida County, N. Y. About 1800 he came to Thompson, Geauga County, Ohio. . . . and lived on land that is now a portion of the city of Painesville, until about 1803, when he removed so the township of Mesopotamia, Trumbell County, Ohio, where he lived some two years, removing from there to Windsor, Astabula County, Ohio, where he lived the balance of his life, dying June 9, 1852."

Skene married Hannah Saxton-729sp about 1788.
of Waterbury, Conn.

* It is interesting to note that the 1810 census for Vermont has only one Sackett listed, Derick Sacket of Tinmouth, Rutland Co., VT. In the account of Aaron's children given by A. P. Sackett, three of the daughters were married and remained in VT.; Hulda, b. 1787; Elizabeth, b. 1789; Phebe, b. 1797. The first two would have been age 17 and 15 in 1804 when the Warning Out was issued. But the daughter Phebe would have been only 7 years old at that time and she would have been 13 in 1810 and her husband, Levi Nichols would have been 19. This would seem to indicate that Phebe was married after 1810 and that her family was still in Vermont in 1810. The last two children of Aaron and Phebe were born in 1805 and 1807. The question then arises; why was the family not listed in the census? One possibility is that Aaron died before 1810 and his widow and children were living with one of her relatives in Rutland Co., VT.
