Notes & Citations
- Date calculated from age at death. Weygant, Sacketts of America, has June 1809.
- Charles Weygant, The Sacketts of America, "1810. Elijah G. Sackett, b. in June, 1809, d. July 5, 1881, married Malinda Lee."
- Find a Grave.
- If the marriage date (1824) recorded in Weygant is correct, Elijah would have been 15 and Malinda about 14. From the dates of birth of their children it would seem likely they were married later than 1824.
