Colonel Augustine Sackett
|Father||Homer Sackett (1765-1853)|
|Mother||Sarah Carter (1768-1852)|
Augustine Sacket was a militiaman, becoming commanding officer of the 11th New York Infantry Regiment.
1521. Colonel Augustine Sacket, 1789–18__, son of (657) Homer and Sarah Carter Sacket, was married, Nov. 31, 1814, to Arze Starr, 1793-1871, daughter of Platt Starr, of Litchfield, Conn. Colonel Sacket was a successful farmer and a thorough going business man. He was born on a farm in Warren, Litchfield County, Conn., and in 1812 removed to Canandaigua, Ontario County, N. Y., where he and his brother Theron purchased jointly a small farm, to which they added from time to time, and gradually improved until it became one of the most productive and valuable farms in Ontario County. Theron Sacket never married and several years previous to 1850 sold his interest to his brother, Colonel Augustine.
The History of Ontario County, published in 1876, by Everts, Ensign and Everts, contains pictures of Colonel and Mrs. Sacket, together with that of the commodious and attractive dwelling in which they resided. Mr. Sacket was, like many of his kinsmen, an enthusiastic militiaman. Several years after he became a resident of Canandaigua he was commissioned Ensign of the light infantry company and speedily passed through all of the intermediary grades to that of commanding officer of the 11th N. Y. Infantry Regiment.
