165. Daniel Sacket, b. Mar. 6, 1734, d. in year 1824.

165. Capt. Daniel Sacket, 1734–1824, of Westfield and Pittsfield, in State of Massachusetts, son of (35) Daniel and Mary Weller Sacket, was married, in 1755, to his first wife, whose name has not been ascertained. In 1768, he was married to his second wife, Mrs Mahitable Cadwell Dewey, daughter of Abel Cadwell and his wife Ann Dwight, and widow of Ashbel Dewey. He was an active participant in the Colonial wars of his time, and in the war of the Revolution. The history of "Massachusetts as Colony and State," records the fact that he served in Captain Horton's Company of Colonel Worthington's Regiment in 1756, and that he was with Captain Benjamin Day when he marched his company to reinforce the army at Crown Point in same year. On Apr. 26, 1776, he was commissioned Captain of 7th Company of Col. John Moseley's Hampshire County Regiment, and on Oct. 21, 1776, he marched with his company under Lieut. Colonel Timothy Robinson for Ticonderoga. On Nov. 29, 1777, he was mustered out, but soon re-entered the service and continued therein until Nov., 1779, when he resigned, giving as a reason that he was unable to give proper time and attention to the duties of his office. He is also credited with commanding a company in Shay's Rebellion.
