Herbert Irving Sackett, son of Edwin Sackett and Susan Parmelia Pierce, was born in Geneseo, Livingston County, New York StateG, on 8 August 1871.1,2,3 He died aged 67 in Williamsville, Erie County, New York StateG, on 2 January 1939.4 He was killed, with his wife Kathleen and their daughter Susan, when their car was struck by a train. They were buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Buffalo, Erie CountyG.2
     Herbert married six times. He married first in Buffalo, Erie CountyG, on 30 September 1895, Lillian Gertrude Huck, daughter of Charles B Huck and Mary H Schaller.5,6 Lillian was born in New York StateG in December 1874.5 She died aged 25 in 1900.6 He married second in BuffaloG on 2 July 1902, Lillian Mae Stevens, daughter of William H Stevens and Anna K ___.6 Lillian was born in New York StateG in March 1877.5 She died aged 37 on 2 November 1914.6 Herbert and Lillian Mae were presumably divorced before 1912.

     Herbert graduated BA from Yale University in 1893. He settled in Buffalo and established a business there in the late 1890s as an electrical supplier and contractor. The business evidently prospered and was still operating at the time of his death in 1939.
     In 1880 Herbert was living in GeneseoG in the household of his widowed mother Susan, and was recorded in the census as Herbert I Sackett, aged eight and born in New York.16
     Herbert enlisted in the New York National Guard, 74th Regiment, on 28 November 1898. He was promoted 2nd Lieutenant in May 1899 and Captain in May 1901. He was honorably discharged on 11 June 1906. He served as a military aide to the New York State Governor in 1919 and 1920.17,18
     In 1900 Herbert's first wife Lillian, aged 25, and their son Russell, aged three, were listed in the census in the household of Lillian's parents Charles and Mary at Summer Street, BuffaloG. A record for Herbert in the 1900 census has not been found; he may have been involved in National Guard duties at the time.19
     In 1905 Herbert was living at Brantford Place, BuffaloG, and was recorded in the census as Herbert I Sackett, an electrical supplier, head of household, aged 35. Living with him were his (second) wife Lillian, 26, son Russell, 8, and mother Susan, 72.20
     In 1910 he was living at Brantford Place, BuffaloG, and was recorded as Herbert Sckett [sic], an electrical contractor, head of household, aged 38. He owned his home on a mortgage. Living with him were his son Russell, 13, and widowed mother Susan, aged 76.21 His wife Lillian was listed in the 1910 census at the home of her parents William and Anna Stevens at Harvard Place, BuffaloG. She was recorded as Lillian Sackett, aged 33, married for seven years, and born in New York.22
     In 1920 he was living at Brantford Place, BuffaloG, and was recorded as Herbert I Sackett, an electrician, head of household, aged 48. He owned his home on a mortgage. Living with him were his wife Vera, 39, and his son Russell, aged 23.23
     In 1930 he was living at Brantford Place, BuffaloG, and was recorded as Herbert I Sackett, proprietor of an electrics store, head of household, aged 58. He owned his home. Living with him was his wife Vera, aged 50.24
     Herbert was listed in the Buffalo City Directory from 1895, when he was first listed there as an electrician, until his death in 1939. His electrical business was well established by the turn of the century. His son Russell joined the business by 1922, first as a purchasing agent, later becoming vice president. Herbert's fourth wife, Vera, was also involved in the business as a designer by that date, and was a departmental manager and vice president by 1928. Russell's wife, Louise, was vice president of the company by 1932.25
Success punctuated by tragedy
Herbert Sackett evidently achieved success in his business career and had also enjoyed success in the military, including service as an aide to the State Governor, but these successes were punctuated by repeated tragedies.
     Herbert's father Edwin had died when Herbert was just eight. His mother did not remarry. Herbert married six times. All of his wives died untimely deaths: Lillian Huck aged 25; Lillian Stevens at 37; Florence at 58; Vera at 49; Marion at 42; and finally his sixth wife Kathleen, aged about 41 when she and Herbert were killed along with their three-year-old daughter Susan.

Three Residents of Buffalo Killed as Train Strikes Car
Buffalo, N.Y., Jan. 3—A Buffalo business executive, his wife and small daughter, lost their lives last night in the first grade crossing tragedy of the New Year in this section.
     The dead: Herbert I. Sackett, 67, president of the Sackett Electric Co., and prominent Mason. Mrs. Kathleen Erwin Sackett, 41. Susan Barbara Sackett, 2½.
     All were killed instantly as the Sackett auto was struck by a Lehigh Valley passenger train on the Chestnut Ridge Road crossing, 1½ miles north of Sheridan Drive in the Town of Amherst.
     The accident happened at 6:25 o'clock as the Sacketts were returning to their home in Chestnut Ridge Road near Sweet Home Road after visiting in Snyder.
     Members of the train crew said Mr. Sackett apparently lost control of his auto as it skidded at the crossing. The auto, they reported, swung on the tracks and its gleaming headlights were headed directly toward the train at the time of impact.
