Extract from The Sacketts of America

Capt. Sackett is frequently referred to in colonial records of New Haven as "Deacon Samuel Sackett." These early records show also that he was prominent in business and and social circles as well as in military and religious affairs. In 1736 he was appointed a Lieutenant and in 1754 commissioned Captain of the "5th Company or Train Band" in the town of New Haven. He was a Justice of the Peace in 1748 and 1749, and again from 1758 to 1776. In 1759 the Governor and General Council of Connecticut authorized Samuel Sackett and several other prominent citizens to organize a company and build and maintain a bridge across the "New Haven East River."
