MarriageMason Morse
Sally Sackett, daughter of Stephen Sacket and Eunice Ross, was born in Westfield, Hampden County, MassachusettsG, in about 17851 and baptized at the Church of Christ, WestfieldG, on 11 November 1794.2 She died aged about 68 in WestfieldG on 24 July 1853 and was buried at the Old Burying Ground, WestfieldG.3 She married Mason Morse.
     Sally was named as a beneficiary in her father's will, made at WestfieldG on 5 October 1829 and proved on 2 March 1830. She was to receive a sum of $1. This token sum, together with the rider "which with what she has already received is to be her full share", and the fact that Stephen refers to her not as his daughter but as the wife of Mason Morse, suggests a falling-out or an exasperation with too many past demands. However, Stephen generously left $50 to each of Sally's four children.
     In 1850 Sally was living in WestfieldG and was recorded in the census as Sarah Morse, aged 65 and born in Massachusetts. Her daughter Eunice, 35, was living with her.4
