1386. Edwin Sackett, 1823–1896, of Boston, Erie County, N. Y., and Brooklyn, Poweshick Co., Iowa, son of (613) Pliny and Nancy Bartell Sackett, was married, in 1850, to Elizabeth Hall. The following biographical notice is copied from the Brooklyn (Iowa) Chronicle, of Sept., 1896:
"Died, at his home, south of Brooklyn, Thursday morning, Sept. 3, 1896, of apoplexy, Edwin Sackett, age 73 years, 4 months and 28 days. Deceased was born near Buffalo, N. Y., April, 6, 1823, and left the state of his nativity ten years later, locating in Berien County, Mich., where in the year 1850, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Hall. By this union twelve children were born, ten of whom, with the faithful wife, survive to mourn the loss of a loving father and husband. In 1855 he moved to Poweshick County, Iowa, where he resided until his death. He was one of the pioneer settlers of this county and was known far and wide for his cordial hospitality. He was a man whose honesty and integrity were never questioned; a good neighbor a firm friend, and perfectly upright in his dealings with his fellowmen. For his many traits of character he was esteemed by a large circle of friends. He was industrious from youth and provided a good home for his family, to whom he was greatly attached. His last illness was of short duration. He arose in the morning and was engaged in the performance of his ordinary duties when taken sick. He continued to grow rapidly worse. All that human hands could do was of no avail, and within two hours he passed into the valley of the shadow of death. The funeral services were held at his late home Saturday, at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. S. Knight, after which the remains were laid at rest in the I. O. O. F. Cemetery. The funeral was largely attended by friends and neighbors, 123 teams being at the house. There were thirty-three grand children, twenty-nine of whom were present at the funeral. The family have the sympathy of all in this great hour of sorrow."
