Joel Sackett, son of Solomon Sackett and Miriam Davis, was born in Sandisfield, Berkshire County, MassachusettsG, on 12 April 1801.1,2,3 He died aged about 67 in Chautauqua County, New York StateG, in 1868 and was buried at Open Meadows Cemetery, Blockville, Chautauqua CountyG.4 He married in Norfolk, Litchfield County, ConnecticutG, on 20 April 1829, Louisa Robbins.5 Louisa was born in ConnecticutG in 1802.6 She died aged about 85 in Chautauqua CountyG in 1887 and was buried at Open Meadows Cemetery, BlockvilleG.4
     Joel was listed in the census in 1830 and 1840 as a householder in Harmony, Chautauqua CountyG.7,8
     In 1850 Joel was living in Mina, Chautauqua CountyG, and was recorded in the census as Joel Sacket, a farmer, aged 49 and born in Connecticut. Living with him were his wife Louisa, 48, and their children, Louisa, 16, and Sylvia, aged nine.9
     In 1855 he was living in Harmony, Chautauqua CountyG, and was recorded as Joel Sackett, head of household, aged 53 and born in Massachusetts. Living with him were his wife Louisa, 52, and their daughter Sylvia, aged 14.10
     In 1860 he was living in HarmonyG and was recorded as Joel Sacket, a farm laborer, aged 59. Living with him were his wife Louisa, 57, and their daughters, Julia, 28, and Sylvia, 19. Also in the household was Dwight Sacket, aged one, whose parents are not identified.11
     There were two Joel Sackets of about the same age living in New York State in the adjacent Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties. Both were born in Massachusetts. The Joel Sacket who was married to Louisa Robbins is assumed to have been the Joel Sackett born in Sandisfield, Massachusetts, to Solomon Sackett. The other Joel Sacket, who was married to Sally V ___, is assumed to have been the son of Joel Sacket who died in Turin, Lewis County, New York. A definitive record to confirm the assumption has not been found.

    Sandisfield births "Joel, s. Solomon Sackett & Miriam, born 16 Apr 1800."
  3. Transcriptions of the birth date are doubtful. An image of a handwritten record of Sandisfield births has: "Family of Solomon Sackett. Sackett Enos son of Solomon Sackett and wife Miriam was born Sept 19th 1798. Sackett Joel son to Solomon Sackett and Miriam his wife was born April. Sackett Lucretia daughter to Solomon Sackett & Miriam his wife was born Nov 11th 1803. Sackett Sylva daughter to Solomon Sackett & Miriam his wife was born Oct 11th 1805." The missing part of Joel's birth date is illegible. It has been variously transcribed as 12 Apr 1802 and 16 Apr 1800. A date of 1801 is assumed, to match the year on the gravestone (assuming also that Joel born in Sandisfield, MA, is the same as Joel buried in Blockville, NY.).
