Charles E Sackett, son of Nehemiah Jobe D Sackett and Emeline Wood, was born in Delaware County, New York StateG, in 1842.1,2 He married in about 1861, Augusta McDonald, daughter of Simeon McDonald and Mary Ann Davis.3 Charles and Augusta are believed to have divorced in about 1870. Augusta was born in PennsylvaniaG on 13 August 1842.4,5 She died aged 75 in Hallstead, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, on 18 December 1917 and was buried at Rose Hill Cemetery, HallsteadG, on 21 December 1917.6
     This Charles Sackett was very likely the co-parent with Hannah Osterhout of Frank Sackett and Carrie Sackett, as identified on Frank's marriage record and Carrie's death record. Hannah Catherine Osterhout, who was the daughter of Henry Osterhout and Margaret Emsley?, was born in Great Bend, Susquehanna CountyG, on 27 September 18425,7 and baptized at the First Presbyterian Church, HallsteadG, on 4 December 1842.8 She married in in about 1874 Eli Mott.9 She died aged 68 in Liberty, Susquehanna CountyG, on 28 January 1910 and was buried at Rose Hill Cemetery, HallsteadG, on 31 January 1910.10,11
     In 1850 Charles was living in Union, Broome County, New York StateG, in the household of his parents Nehemiah and Emeline, and was recorded in the census as Charles Sacket, aged eight and born in New York.12
     In 1860 he was living in Liberty, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, in the household of his parents Nehemiah and Emeline, and was recorded as Charles Sacket, aged 18.13
     Charles completed a Civil War draft registration card in June 1863. He was a farmer, aged 21, married, and was living in LibertyG.14 He was probably the Charles Sackett who served as a private soldier in Company C, 104th Pennsylvania Infantry, enlisting at Scranton, PennsylvaniaG, on 21 October 1863 and being discharged on 18 April 1865.15
     No record of Charles Sackett has been found after the Civil War. Census records for him after 1860 have not been found, nor has a death record yet been found.
     Evidence of his marriage to Augusta McDonald is circumstantial, but the circumstances are consistent. They were co-parents of four children between 1861 and 1868. The family tradition has it that Augusta divorced Charles in 1871. The reason for the divorce may be deduced: that Charles had simultaneously maintained a relationship with Hannah Osterhout, evidenced by their having had children in 1865 and in about 1866. Indeed, it appears that both women had a child by Charles in the same month, in November 1865. Augusta and Charles appear to have separated by 1870 when she and their four children were living with Augusta's parents in Great Bend.
     Hannah Osterhout, the mother of Charles's other two children, Frank and Carrie, married Eli Mott in about 1874 and they had three children, the first born in about 1875. Eli and Hannah Mott are recorded in the 1880 census living in Great Bend with their three children and with Charles and Hannah's daughter Carrie, then aged 14. Their son Frank was not in this household at the census date and a record for him has not been found.
     Evidence that Frank was the son of Charles and Hannah is given on Frank's marriage certificate where he stated his parents to be Chas E Sackett and Hannah Osterhout.
     In 1870 Augusta was living at Great Bend, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, in the household of her parents Simeon and Mary Ann McDonald. She was recorded in the census as Augusta Sacket, aged 30. Living with her were her children, Grace, 8, Ruth, 4, William, 3, and Orin, aged one.16
     In 1880 Augusta was living at Great BendG in the household of Thomas Elmore, 22, a laborer. Her parents Simeon and Mary Ann McDonald were living next door. She was recorded in the census as Augusta Elmore, aged 38. Living with her were her children, Ruth, 14, and Harvey, aged twelve. Although she was recorded in the census as the wife of Thomas Elmore, it is unlikely that they were married. In later records she was named as Sackett or McDonald.17
     In 1900 Augusta was living at Chase Avenue, Great BendG, in the household of her son Harvey. She was recorded as Augusta Sackett, a widow, aged 57.18
     In 1910 Augusta was living in HallsteadG in the household of her son Harvey. She was recorded as Agusta McDonald, a widow, aged 67.19
