Jonathan Sacket, son of Ozem Sacket and Mercy Weller, was born in Westfield, Hampden County, MassachusettsG, on 10 September 1763.1,2,3 He died there aged 65 on 7 July 18293,4 and was buried at the Old Burying Ground, WestfieldG.8 He married at the First Church, WestfieldG, on 20 March 1788, Hannah/Joanna Sowl.3,5,6,7 Jonathan's wife is named as Hannah in the marriage record. In subsequent records, she is Joanna. They were probably the same, although the gap in the births of children between 1791 and 1799 might suggest two wives. The only later reference to Hannah is in the 1874 death record of the daughter Julana. This would support the assumption that Hannah and Joanna were the same, as would the naming of Joanna's father as Sowl in her death record. Joanna was born in MassachusettsG in about 1767.9 She was baptized as an adult at the Church of Christ, WestfieldG, on 30 April 1819.10 She died aged about 85 in WestfieldG on 28 October 185311 and was buried at the Old Burying Ground, WestfieldG.8
