1358. King Sackett, 1806–1895, son of (603) Charles and Abigail Otis Sacket, was born and grew to manhood in the town of Westfield, Mass. He was married, Oct. 11, 1827, to Mary Campbell Holcomb, 1806-1886. About the year 1832, he went to Ohio, then quite generally known as New Connecticut, and took up a wilderness farm in what became Portage County. His wife and two older children followed him one year later, during which he had constructed a pioneer house, and here on this tract, which he gradually converted from a wilderness into a productive farm, he reared his family of eight children and lived in peace and plenty for over 50 years, when he removed to Cleveland and there spent his remaining years with his oldest son William Sackett. It is said of him, that notwithstanding the fact that a considerable portion of his life was spent in a wild country, which abounded in dense woods, he was never known to use a firearm of any description. His children, as they approached maturity, were given the best of educational advantages and became men and women of exceptional culture and refinement.
