Annie M Sackett

FatherWilliam F Sackett (1845-1934)
MotherAdelaide Peck (1850-1905)
Annie M Sackett, daughter of William F Sackett and Adelaide Peck, was born in Sheffield, Berkshire County, MassachusettsG, on 31 August 1889.1 She married in Torrington, Litchfield County, ConnecticutG, on 19 November 1916, Robert Frank Bownes, a laborer, son of Frank Bownes and Bessie Chapman.2 Robert was born in Sharon, Litchfield CountyG, on 18 October 1888 and died aged 79 in SheffieldG on 15 November 1967.3
     In 1900 Annie was living in SheffieldG in the household of her parents William and Adelaide, and was recorded in the census as Annie M Sackett, aged ten and born in Massachusetts.4
     In 1910 she was living at Ashley Falls Village, SheffieldG, and was recorded as Annie M Sackett, single, aged 21. She was a servant to Charles Landon, 72, a widower.5
     In 1920 (and 1930), Annie's husband Robert was living with his parents Frank and Bessie in SheffieldG. He was described as single. Annie and Robert's son Richard was apparently adopted by Annie's father and stepmother as he was living with them in 1920, and with Annie's father, by then a widower, in 1930. These circumstances suggest that Annie had died by 1920, although a record has not been found.6
