"Marcuc C. Sackett. Early this morning at his home at No. 161 Smith street Marcus C. Sackett answered the call of the Master and passed peacefully away, surrounded by his loving, faithful wife and his children. "Mark" was a general favorite among his associates, for his even temperament always made him congenial company and though his death, not unlooked for, yet when the end came the loss for the first time was realized. For several months he has been confined to his home suffering with consumption. He was born in Franklin county New York, November 4, 1852 and came to Monroe with his mother in 1866. He spent his early days in school and later learned the trade of a carpenter at Root's mill where he was employed up to his last illness. He was married at Monroe, September 21, 1875 to Mary Weid and from this union there were two children, both of whom survive him, together with his devoted wife and two sisters, Mrs. H. D. Spaulding, of Monroe, and Mrs. Seaward, of Manchester, N.H. The deceased was a faithful member of Monroe Lodge No. 19 I.O.O.F. and the funeral will be held from the late residence Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. O'Meara and the Oddfellows."
