According to Lucy Sackett Curtiss in her history of the Warren Congregational Church, Justus's house was commonly known as "Sackett's Harbor" because no one was ever refused shelter there, although it may of course have been a reference to the village of that name.8,9 Justus's wife Polly was admitted to membership of the Warren church on 15 July 1827, remaining a member there until her death in 1867.7
