460. Joseph Sackett, 1757–1816, only child of (147) Joseph and Eliza Strang Sackett, was born several weeks after the death of his father. He died at Fishkill, Dutchess County, N. Y., which would seem to have been his place of residence during the latter part of his life. His will, dated May 14, 1812, and probated Feb. 27, 1718 [sic: 1818], is recorded on page 385 of Liber D. of Westchester County, N. Y. records. By this instrument he conveys his property, first to his "Cousin Sarah Strang, single woman, daughter of Henry Strang, deceased, and second to Joseph Sackett Strang, son of Thomas Strang, Esq." So far as known he never married. His name appears in list of residents of Dutchess County, N. Y., entitled to land bounties because of service rendered his country in war of Revolution.
