|Father||Solomon Sackett (1748-1823)|

In 1790 Joel was living in North Haven, New Haven County, ConnecticutG. The census record is of a household comprising only one man although Joel had married the previous year. There is no evidence of another Joel Sackett living in North Haven at this time.6
Joel died intestate. Lydia, his widow, and Caleb Todd were appointed administrators of his personal estate by the Wallingford Probate District Court on 1 October 1800. An inventory valued his estate at $605. His widow and children, Butler and Maria, each received items to the value of one-third of that sum.7
699. Joel Sackett, son of (254) Samuel and Abigail Blakeley Sacket, was married to Lydia Todd, daughter of Hesekiah Todd and his wife Lydia Frost, of North Haven, Conn.
