     He is also mentioned in a business account contained in a letter from Rev Samual Mather, pastor of the church in Windsor, Conn. to Rev Edward Taylor, pastor of the church in Westfield.
     There are other references in Lockwood to John Sacket but, as they do not specify "Jr", they are taken to refer to his father, John Sackett Sr.13
