  1. Weygant, Sacketts of America, lists a Sarah, daughter of Joseph Sackett and an unnamed mother. No other details are given. Jacobus, Families of Ancient New Haven, identifies this Sarah as possibly the Sarah Sackett who married Samuel Gilbert in 1750. Based on her age, 86, on death in February 1818, Sarah was born in about 1731. Her father Joseph was then 19.
