Who was Jonathan Sacket?
The parents of Jonathan Sacket who married Lucinda Plumb have not been identified, nor have birth or death records been found.
     Families of Early Milford, Connecticut6 states that he was the Jonathan Sackett who died in Milford in 1849. However, further research shows that that Jonathan Sackett moved to Milford from Newtown, Queens County, New York, sometime between 1810 and 1820, and therefore after the marriage in Milford of Jonathan and Lucinda and after the birth of their children.
     DNA test results of a known descendant of Gad/James Sackett (See New Haven DNA chart 2), now identified as a son of Jonathan, indicate that Jonathan and Gad/James were descendants in the John Sackett of New Haven line. This suggests that Jonathan was probably born locally.
     A current hypothesis is that Jonathan may have been the unnamed illegitimate child born in New Haven in 1766 to another Jonathan Sackett and Mary Ford.
     This older Jonathan, who died in New Haven in 1797, was a descendant in the New Haven line. He is recorded to have married (his wife’s name is not known) and to have had seven children from about 1767. His wife would not have been Mary Ford as she married a John Russell in 1771.
