Long Island, Manchester, Passaic, NJ [sic], father William Sackett." [Beyne is probably a transcription error for Bergen; the recorder probably meant widowed for single; birth place would have been Long Island; Manchester, Passaic, probably referred to residence; identification of William Sackett as John's father is useful information, not found in other records.]
