645. William Sacket, 1753–1842, of Warren, Conn., Treaford, Vt., and Cayuga County, N. Y., son of (202) Jonathan and Hulda Phelps Sacket, was married in spring of 1774 to Eunice Bowman [Beeman] who died Mar. 10, 1784. On May 29, 1786, he was married to Parthenia Patterson. At the outbreak of the war of the Revolution he enlisted in the 5th Connecticut Regiment, commanded by Col. Watterbury, and attached to Gen. Wooster's Brigade. He was by occupation a farmer, and settled first at Warren, Conn. In February, 1788, he sold his farm at Warren and removed to Tredford, Vt., where he had purchased a farm, and located some four miles west of the Connecticut River. This farm he in 1801 sold to Judge Buckingham and removed to another a few miles distant on the banks of the Connecticut. In 1805 he disposed of this farm also and migrated with his large family to Aurelius, Cayuga County, N. Y., where he subsequently purchased another farm and built upon it a house, in which he lived until 1832. His son Garry V., and other members of his family became meantime interested in the settlement and building up of a new village, now called Seneca Falls, ten miles to the westward of the Sacket homestead at Aurelius. In 1832 William Sacket removed to the new village, where he had purchased a comfortable cottage, in which he spent his remaining years.
