Children of Adnah Sackett and Eliza Hubbard Adams


1281. Adnah Sackett, 1796–1860, of Providence, R. I., son of (571) John and Lucinda Mosely Sackett, was married, Mar. 5, 1818, to Ann Short, who died June 1, 1823; on May 2, 1824, to his second wife, Eliza Hubbard Adams, who died Aug. 14, 1847; on June 5, 1848, to his third wife, Miranda Keach, who died Oct. 10, 1855 and on May 20, 1856, to his fourth wife Nancy Blake Parks, 1811–1899.
     Adnah Sackett was born in Southwick, Mass., and after receiving a common school education, went to Providence to learn the jewelry business. Soon after reaching his majority he began manufacturing jewelry on his own account, introducing machinery to a greater extent than it was being used by any other manufacturer of jewelry in the country. Politically he was a Democrat, and was the nominee of his party for the Mayor of Providence and Governor of Rhode Island. He was universally recognized and respected as a successful business man and public spirited citizen, filling with credit many responsible positions, both public and private, of influence and trust.
