    • Sources cited: Weygant, Charles: Sacketts of America and Riker, James: Annals of Newtown, NY Tinsley lists mrg date as 1734. Sackett cites: Title: Riker, James: Annals of Newtown, NY Page: p345, Text: Note: Weygant at p40 gives marriage date as 1734. Given their first child's birth date of Jan 1732/33, the Apr 1732 date is likely to be correct.

  • Notes 
    • He was the son of Joseph and Mercy WHITEHEAD SACKETT.

      In 1735 Mr. and Mrs. Sackett took up their residence in Orange County, NY. The young couple resided during the greater part of the first eight years of their wedded life at the foot of Storm King Mountain, near the village of Cornwall. Samuel served as minister and missionary in Orange & Westchester Counties of New York and Hartford, CT.
      At the outbreak of the Revolution his congregation and family was divided. Hannah's husband and family were staunch Tories while her brothers fought with the colonists. Crompond, where Samuel lived & preached, was about midway of the distance between the outposts of the opposing armies. He preached whenever occasion offered, not concealing the fact that his sympathies were with those of his countrymen who had determined to throw off the galling yoke of oppression. In July, 1779, the meeting house at Crompond, in which his flock assembled for worship, was destroyed by fire kindled by a body of British cavalry sent out for that especial purpose. [Tinsley]
