Ira H Sackett

(c 1815-)
FatherHiram Sackett1 (c 1794-after 1850)
MotherAnna Jones1 (1797-1851)
Ira H Sackett was born in about 1815.2 He was probably the son of Hiram Sackett and Anna Jones. He married Lucy Gilbert. Lucy was born in EnglandG in about 1819.2
     In 1850 Ira was living in Sturgis, St Joseph County, MichiganG, and was recorded in the census as Ira H Sackett, a laborer, aged 35. Living with him were his wife Lucy, 31, and their children, Miles, 11, Luther, 6, and Hannah, aged two.3
     In 1870 he was living in The Disputed Islands (PO San Juan Island), Whatcom County, Washington TerritoryG, and was recorded as Ira H Sackett, a cooper, aged 55. He was living in an all-male household comprising five coopers and a cook. Next door were two other all-male households, including choppers and laborers, the whole suggesting that this may have been an encampment.4
     Records of Ira are few and inconsistent. His birthpace is given in the 1850 census as Virginia, in 1870 as Pennsylvania, in his son Miles's 1880 census record as England, and in his daughter Hannah's death record (1918) as New York. Ira's identification as a son of Hiram is unproved.

Children of Ira H Sackett and Lucy Gilbert
