Waight Sacket

FatherKing Sacket (1734-after 1800)
MotherLydia Sacket (1736-1810)
Waight Sacket, daughter of King Sacket and Lydia Sacket, was born in Sheffield, Berkshire County, MassachusettsG, on 23 October 1765.1
     No further record that can be positively identified with Waight Sacket has been found. She may have died young.
     However, census and tax records of a Wait Sacket appear in Butternuts, New York StateG, from 1800 to 1810. These would presumably have been for a male Sacket of the name. The records are included here in case a link is found. It would be possible that the child was incorrectly stated to be a daughter in the birth record. The ancestry of Wait Sacket of Butternuts is otherwise unexplained.
     Wait Sacket was listed in the census in 1800 and 1810 as a householder in Butternuts, Otsego County, New York StateG.2,3
     He was assessed for tax on real estate valued at $550 and personal property of $25 in ButternutsG in 1801. Further taxes were raised in 1802 and 1803.4
