     The identity of Frank's parents is unclear. They are named on his death certificate as Jobe Sackett and Hannah Osterhout, but these are not found in other records. It had been supposed that Jobe was Nehemiah Jobe D Sackett, but, as far as is known, Nehemiah Jobe was married to Emeline Wood at all relevant times. Frank is not listed with Nehemiah and Emeliine in either the 1870 or 1880 census when he would have been aged four and fourteen respectively.
     In 1900 Frank was living at Great Bend Township, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, and was recorded in the census as Frank Sackett, teamster, head of household, aged 33 and born in Pennsylvania. His house was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 30, and their children, Bertie, 9, Leon, 5, and Ethel, aged one. Also in the household was a male boarder.7
     In 1905 Frank was living in Binghamton, Broome County, New York StateG, and was recorded in the census as Frank D Sackett, a self-employed cartman, head of household, aged 37. Living with him were his wife Rose, 32, and their children, Bert, 13, and Ethel, aged six.8
     In 1910 he was living in Hallstead Borough, Susquehanna CountyG, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a laborer on the railroad, head of household, aged 43 and born in Pennsylvania. His house was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 41, their children, Ethel, 10, and Bert, 19, Bert's wife May, and Bert and May's four-month-old daughter Lillian.9
     In 1920 he was living in Binghamton, New York StateG, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a carpenter on the Erie Railroad, head of household, married, aged 50 and born in Pennsylvania. His home was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 40, daughter Ethel, 21, and Ethel's husband Carl Van Dusen, 24, also a railroad carpenter. Boarding in the household was a nine-year-old Charles Van Dusen.10
     In 1930 he was living in BinghamtonG in the household of his daughter Ethel and son-in-law Carl Van Dusen, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a carpenter, aged 60 and born in Pennsylvania. Living with him was his wife Rose.11
     Frank was listed in the Binghamton City Directory from 1905. He was recorded in the 1906 edition as having removed to Great Bend. He returned to Binghamton by 1912 and was listed there again in 1916 through to at least 1944.12
