756. Isaac Anson Sackett, 1785–1852, of Stamford, Delaware County, N. Y., son of (283) Joseph Sackett, was married, May 18, 1809, to Eunice Davis, daughter of Nehemiah Davis, 1785–__, and his wife Hannah Thorp. He was by occupation in early life a blacksmith, but in his later years followed farming. There is a mystery surrounding his death. He left his home, not saying where he was going, and did not return. After a considerable lapse of time a search was determined upon and his dead body was found in a nearby piece of woods. An examination of his remains revealed the fact that his death had resulted from a gunshot wound.
