1050. Noadiah Sacket, 1784–1875, of Pittsfield, Mass., Genesee County, N. Y., and Clinton, Mo., son of (483) Lemuel and Annie Frances Sacket, was married, about 1810, to Sophia Allen, 1787–1829. About the month of January, 1831, he was married to his second wife, Mrs Hannah Chapman. In 1820 and for several years thereafter he was a commissioned officer in the 64th Regiment of N. Y. S. M.

[The following biographical sketch is found under the entry for son George (2600) on p300.]

Noahdiah [sic] Sackett was born Aug. 5, 1789, at Pittsfield, Berkshire Co., Mass., where he resided with his parents until their removal to Brighton, Monroe Co., N. Y., in the year 1810. The same year he married Sophia Allen, a relative of Ethan Allen of "Revolutionary fame," and settled at Leicester, N. Y. He remained at this place until the year 1820, when he removed to Avon, Loraine Co., O; here his wife died Apr. 27, 1829, aged 41 years. He soon married again, a Mrs. Hannah Chapman, a widow with several children, the eldest of which, William Henry Chapman, afterward married his third daughter, Jane Frances Sackett.
     In about four years he again changed his residence, going to Frederick, Macomb Co., Mich., where he located on a large tract of land extending north toward Utica for several miles. Frederick was once a "Moravian Mission." We find in a history of the "Moravians in Michigan," this reference to it: "So the old Moravian village passed away. In 1836, Horace Stephens, of Detroit, bought a number of acres of land and laid it out in village lots. He named the new town Frederick, in honor of a brother by that name. It is situated on the banks of the Huron River. Upon the banks of this river the first orchard in Macomb County was planted more than 125 years ago. Some of the trees, which are still standing, show the marks of great age, and are of great size. The fruit is peculiar, and unlike any of to-day. Noahdiah Sackett built the first grist mill and cooper shop in Frederick. A pump factory was built by the firm of Campbell & Sackett, and an extensive business was done, 1,200 being manufactured in one year, and were sold in several states." In 1844, Campbell & Sackett built a fine hotel, which did a good business and was well patronized. The following year the Kalamazoo and Clinton Canal was built, and there was a general "jollification" when ground was broken.
     For about ten years he resided in Frederick, superintending his mills and hotel, and also teaching school. In all of his undertakings he was assisted by his son, George Seymour Sackett, who accompanied his father from Ohio to Michigan, and early turned his attention to cultivating and improving the land.
     After leaving Frederick, he located at Elgin, Ill., where he bought two farms, one on the east and the other on the west side of the town. While residing here he superintended the building of a large church. After a short time he sold his farms and went to Oshkosh, Wis., where he built a large sash, door and blind factory, employing many men and doing a large amount of work for the city and surrounding country. Was also "mail contractor" for twenty-four years while in Oshkosh.
     He again sold his business and located at Lacrosse, Wis., purchasing two farms, and gave his attention entirely to the management of them. After a few years at Lacrosse, he gave up business entirely, and went on a visit to his daughters in Ohio, where he remained about two years. He then went to Clinton, Henry Co., Mo., to visit his son Oliver Noahdiah Sackett, where he died four days after his arrival, Jan. 11, 1875, aged 85 years, 5mo., 5 days. He was always a prominent, public spirited man, taking a deep interest in the public affairs of the places in which he lived.
