Henry Sackett
The passing of Henry Sackett on Tuesday evening last cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood. Mr. Sackett was never known to be sick until a few weeks ago, when he was laid off by jaundice, which was not considered dangerous until a few days before his death. Born in New York State in 1844 he came to Canada with his parents when quite young. His parents first lived in the township of Darlington, but after there a few years came to the wilds of Fenelon, settling near Cameron. For over 55 years he lived and labored with the people of the township, helping to clear its forests and build their homes. Henry Sackett joined the Salvation Army shortly after the opening of this corps and has proven by his life to be a faithful member of that body. The deceased will be mourned by a circle of friends and neighbors who prized him for his Godly life and genial disposition.
     His wife, two sons, two brothers and two sisters are left to mourn his loss.
