Charles Sackett
He was the fourth child of Aaron Sackett and his wife, Phebe Hart Sackett. He was born May 23, 1793, at Litchfield, Connecticut. In 1803 he moved to Vermont. He married Saloma Bascom July 3, 1814, who was born at Cambridge, Vermont, on May 3, 1795. She was the daughter of Joel Bascom and his wife, Rebecca Westcott. Joel made the trip to Attica, N.Y. from Rutland, Vermont in 1818, and at the last minute his son-in-law, Charles and his daughter, Saloma Bascom Sackett, decided to go with him, and with them went their infant son, Joel Bascom Sackett. An anecdotal account of this midwinter trip was provided by Asher Sackett in a letter to me dated March 13, 1952, which is reproduced herein. The same year (1818) Charles moved to Byron, N.Y. In 1834, he moved to Bergen, N.Y. He died August 7, 1879. His wife had died September 6, 1869. "He was a man of sterling Christian integrity, expanded views, and large experience, temperate in all things and exemplary in his social relationships". His occupation was that of a farmer.
