Sackett. The elder brother, C.D.S., died yesterday afternoon, of congestion of the lungs. His brother died this morning of apoplexy, a consequence of the excitement and grief which the decease of his brother had induced. They were most estimable men; their relations through life had been singularly close; they lived together, worked together, and died together. The elder brother was married, and died in his 60th year; the younger was a bachelor, and died in his 54th year.—N.Y.Ev.Post, 9 March.

- William J Doty, editor, The Historic Annals of Southwestern New York, Lewis Historical Publishing Company, New York (1940), v 1, p 374, "The Fletcher family owned the "Chautauqua Journal" for twenty years. In 1848 Frank W. Palmer secured control. He had learned his trade in the "Journal's" office and was an effective writer and practical printer. After a decade he sold his interests to C. D. Sackett and Coleman E. Bishop, who gave allegiance to the candidacy of John C. Frémont for President in 1856. They did not hesitate, or apologize, for supporting Abraham Lincoln, four years later. Upon the death of Sackett, Coleman E. Bishop became associated with his brother, Prentice, who was wounded during the Civil War and died in 1865."
