Abram M Sackett

Birth1832, New York StateG,1
Abram M Sackett was born in New York StateG in about 1832.1
     In 1860 Abram was living at West Farms, Westchester County, New York StateG, in the household of Jeremiah Sackett, and was recorded in the census as Abram Sackett, aged 28 and born in New York.2
     Abram registered for the Civil War draft in Sussex County, New JerseyG, on June 1863. He was a laborer of Green Township, aged 27.3
     Abram M Sackett and Jeremiah V Sackett were probably brothers. They were in the same household at West Farms, New York, in 1860, and both registered for the Civil War draft in Green, New Jersey in 1863. Gertrude Sackett, who died in Tranquility, New Jersey, in 1850, may have been a sister. Jeremiah had children, Elizabeth and Richard, in Tranquility in 1852 and 1854. The death of Gertrude Sackett in New Jersey in 1850 is noted also in the records of the Presbyterian Church in Newtown, Long Island, the record naming her father as the late William Sackett. Her parents were therefore William Sackett and Gertrude Meserole. It is noted that Jeremiah also named one of his daughters Gertrude. Although not proved, there is good circumstantial evidence that Jeremiah V Sackett and Abram M Sackett were also children of William Sackett and Gertrude Meserole.
