1682. Jonathan Sackett, 1783-1851, son of (711) Richard and Martha Benedict Sackett, was born and reared on his father's farm at Poultney, V. T. On Jan, 2, 1805, he was married to his first wife, Lucy Wright, 1784-1833. In the Spring of 1812, Jonathan Sackett, with his wife and three small children, and accompanied by younger brother, Anson and his wife, traveled in pioneer fashion through the historic Mohawk Valley, along the western shore of Oneida Lake, and on to the but sparsely settled township of Volney, Oswego County, N. Y., where they settled on a section of wild land covered for the most part by heavy timber. Here Jonathan Sackett, with the energy and perseverance characteristic of the pioneers of that period soon had a cleared and productive farm. He also built and conducted a saw mill and erected a substantial dwelling, which later was visited, in 1903, by Prof. Fowler of Cornell University, who married one of his descendants. Writing of this visit to the homestead of his wife's ancestors, Prof. Rowlee says: "It is just off the old state road (previously an Indian trail) from Rome to Oswego Falls. It is one of the oldest houses in that region." In January 1834, Jonathan Sackett was married to his second wife, Lucinda Chittendon, 1796-1841, of Poultney, V. T. Not long after the death of his second wife he was married to his third wife, Sally Chittendon, 1784-1858.
