    "Mine Found in Orange County
    Johannes CLOSSON, formerly a workman of Mr. SCHUYLER's, about eleven years ago, came to me, and told me that he had found a mine on my land above the Highlands, at a place called Blooming-Grove, lying between Goshen and the river, in Orange County, where my eldest son Joseph SACKET, Jun. now lives. I made him several offers. He said it would not do, but if I would give him a lease for a term of years, he would carry it on at his own cost, and deliver me one half at the pit's mouth, and come to work in 6 or 8 month's time, and told me the ore was as good as Mr. SCHUYLER's. But he died before the time he was to come. About 4 years ago, I heard his widow made enquiry after a SACKET on Long Island, I went over to her, she said her husband had been dead 7 years, but he told her that on one SACKET's land, above the Highlands, on the west side of the river, he had found a mine, and that he dug very shallow, and could heave it out by bushels, but he covered it up carefully, and that it was near by a spring, and not far from a brook. There was an elderly Dutchman present then, and he said he had often evenings and mornings conversed with him, and he said he had often told him the same thing, and heard him say, if he had his leave, and lived 7 years, he should be a gentleman. Now if any person can discover the vein of ore, if it is on my lands, he shall have out of the first clear profits, 300 l., or he shall have it for a term of years, as CLOSSON was to have it, or he shall have the 8th part of it for ever, as witness my hand, July 27, 1752.

    The Yankee Card Writer.
    In our paper of yesterday morning we briefly announced the arrival of that erratic genius the "Yankee Card-Writer." He occupies rooms at the Globe, where he will be happy to see ladies and gentlemen who desire elegant wedding or visiting cards.
    A card case filled with tasteful and elegant visiting cards are an almost indispensable requisite to a lady or gentleman, and no one who mingles in refined society should be without them. Those written by the "Yankee Card-Writer" are quite equal in elegance and beauty to the finest engraving, and possess the important additional qualification of being the most fashionable style now in use. He will remain in the city but a short time, and those who desire to have their card cases filled with a beautiful article will do well to call soon. Specimens of his cards may be seen at the bookstore of L. W. Hall.

    "The "Yankee Card Writer"—We are gratified to learn that our fellow citizen, Mr. O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer," is highly eulogized by the press wherever he goes. The following which we clip from the Syracuse Daily Journal, is but one of the many favorable notices which have come under our observation. "Mr. S. has done a good business here, which he cannot fail to do everywhere. Indeed, he is without a rival or an equal in his line."

    O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer."
    O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer."
    The above portrait of the "Yankee Card Writer," was engraved by Carson of Albany, N. Y., and though a poorly executed likeness, will serve to give our readers some idea of the personal appearance of this celebrated artist.
    Mr. O. Sackett was born near Rochester, N. Y., and at a very early age exhibited an extraordinary talent for portraiture and penmanship. His parents being poor, were unable to assist him, to either make progress in his favorite area, or in attaining an education. Through the kindness, however, of Professor Phelps, the principal of an academy in Sherburne, N.Y., he at the age of twelve years, commenced his education at that institution, paying all expenses except board by superintending the writing department two hours each day. After one year of close study, finding his wardrobe deficient in many important particulars, he became nearly discouraged, and seriously determined to engage in some kind of labor, which should furnish the means whereby he might procure books and clothes, and heprepared to prosecute his studies in a more respectable manner.
    A few days previous to that upon which he proposed putting his plans into execution, he was presented, by Prof. Phelps, with a teacher's certificate, and informed that a school had been engaged, which he could conduct (although then but thirteen years of age) as successfully as any person in the State, if he only thought so himself. This was advised by the Professor, who said:—"If you try to earn money by manual labor, your age, and lack of physical maturity will render it impossible for you to command such wages as would assist you in getting an education before you will become discouraged and give up altogether." The advice was taken—the first school successfully taught—after which, he for two years. alternately taught and was taught, until he arrived at the age of fifteen. At this time his talent for portraiture seemed to have gained the ascendency, and without instruction, or the advantage of witnessing the work of any artist, he boldly offered himself to the public, and for two years successfully practiced his profession in the different cities and large towns in his native State.
    His miniatures, for truthfulness, and delicacy of tint and finish, have never been excelled by any other artist in this country, and will be treasured, by those who possess them, as rare souvenirs, as well of the artist, as the original.
    At seventeen he had already enjoyed the patronage of large numbers of the most autocratic families, in different parts of the State, whose attentions soon brought him before the public, through the press. This so increased his business that he could not possibly execute miniatures as rapidly as ordered. Being ambitious, he unwisely applied himself day after day, and week following week, so closely to business, that he soon lost his sight.
    After careful treatment, in two months his sight returned but not sufficiently perfect to ever permit him to follow his favorite profession. Nothing discouraged, he immediately commenced giving instruction in penmanship,—arranged and perfected a new and beautiful system which he called the "Science of writing," by which he has successfully taught, in eight years, in this and several other States, about twelve thousand pupils, and left the field with a reputation far beyond any other teacher in the United States, not only as a professor; but as an original and most successful disciplinarian, and yet Mr. S. has never received a moments instruction in penmanship from any person—having already given instruction two years before witnessing the process pursued in any similar school.
    All the different professions in which Mr. S. has figured have been stamped with great originality and novelty. He seems never to have followed in a course, marked out by any but himself, and at present, and in every profession chosen, he has gained a higher position, and a more extended reputation than any person preceding him.
    Several years since, while carelessly using a metallic pencil, he discovered that a most beautiful impression was made by it upon enameled cards, he at once commenced presenting his young lady pupils (with whom he has always been immensely popular) with visiting cards written by himself.
    The result of this kindness to pupils free of charge, was such an increased demand of similar favors, that in order to stop it in future, the better to attend to the business of teaching, it became necessary to make a charge, and by demanding pay for visiting cards, Mr. S. thought to drive all orders away; but on the contrary, not only pupils, but those not under instructions were relieved of the delicacy which kept them from ordering cards for which no charge was made, and so great was the demand, and so numerous the orders sent, that a still greater, and more unreasonable charge was made, but with no better success, for the astonishing beauty and artistic perfection of his writing at once placed Mr. Sackett's cards far above Copper plate in the estimation of all persons of taste and fashion, and the extravagant prices charged were paid without reluctance.
    Mr. S., never blind to the attractions of money, decided to try card writing as a profession, and immediately commenced operations. Two years have hardly elapsed since, and yet the "Yankee Card Writer" (which cognomen has been assumed by Mr. S.) has effected the greatest revolution in the fashionable world, ever witnessed. —Wherever he goes he is thronged with orders from the most distinguished families, who notwithstanding they have already a supply of beautifully engraved cards, at a much cheaper rate, will use no cards except those executed by the "Yankee."
    In Albany, in seven weeks, Mr. S. executed with his own hand, and delivered to his customers, 30,000 cards.
    The rapidity with which he writes (every card is written by hand) is without parallel, and for splendor and perfection of execution, cannot be equaled by the most finished copper plate.
    Mr. S. is the originator of this profession, out of which he will easily realize a fortune if he does not, as a former case apply himself so closely as to destroy his sight.
    It will be seen that whatever Mr. S. has followed for a livelihood up to the present, has been suggested by circumstance, and developed and made valuable by personal effort,—hence, instead of exciting envy, it should secure for him the earnest "God speed you" of every friend of industry and genius."

    Thomas B. GROVES died suddenly last night of hemorrhage of the lungs at his home, No. 92 Smith street, aged 63 years. When only 20 years of age he left his birthplace in County Kerry, Ireland, and in company with his widowed mother, came to Rochester, where he resided continuously for forty-three years. He learned the carriage trade at James CUNNINGHAM factory, and for a time carried on the business of carriage-making. For the past eight years, he has assisted his son, Thomas H. GROVES, in the shoe business. Deceased was always a Democrat of the old school, and was uncompromising in support of his political faith. He was a regular attendant at St. Patrick' church, in which he at one time served a sexton. In his large family he was kind and considerate, and, by diligence and energy, he succeeded in giving his children many social educational and business advantages. The immediate family consisted of the widow, four sons, Thomas H., and William E., of Rochester, G. W., of Buffalo and John L., of Chicago, and four daughters, Mrs. E. J. SACKETT, Mrs. C. J. MALOY and Misses Ida and Theresa GROVES.

    Death of Mrs. A. C. Hall.
    Died, in Belmont, Friday evening, January 24th, 1890, Mrs Hannah, wife of Anson C. Hall.
    Mrs. Hall had been an invalid for the past three years, but had been up and around the house. Three weeks ago she was attacked with erysipelas, a disease which had caused her much trouble for many years, and which finally caused her death. She would have been 69 years old, had she lived until yesterday.
    Deceased's maiden name was Hannah Sackett. She was born in Candor, Tioga county, Jan. 27, 1821. She was united in marriage to Anson C. Hall, at Phillips Creek, November 12, 1840, forty-nine years ago last November. Her husband survives her, and she also leaves six children: Richard Hall, of Elmira; Caleb Hall, of Wellsville; James and William Hall, of Phillips Creek; Mrs. Mary Fuller, of Phillips Creek, and Mrs. Elba Reynolds, of Belmont.
    The funeral was held in the Presbyterian church, in this village, at 2 o'clock, Sunday afternoon, Rev. A. M. Bennett, pastor of the 1st Baptist church, officiating, Rev. Mr. Snyder being ill.
    Mr. Hall has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in his irreparable loss. He is 70 years of age, and the loss of his affectionate helpmate, after nearly half a century of wedded union, is a great affliction for him to bear.

    On Oct. 15 he was stricken with pneumonia and in December he went to Asheville, N.C., for his health. He returned to Buffalo two weeks ago and from that time his decline was rapid. Dr. Sackett was married and leaves a wife and three daughters. A short service will be held at the family home this afternoon at 5:30 o'clock and the remains will be taken to Geneseo for interment.

    Something of Interest Concerning Frank E. Sackett.
    He Possesses All of the Qualifications Which Entitle Him to Hold the Office—His Able Business Career.
    There is no reason in the world why every resident of the county should not vote for the Democratic nominee for county treasurer. On the other hand there is every reason why each voter of Chemung county should cast their ballot for him. Frank E. Sackett, the man whom the Democrats of this county have selected for this office, possesses every qualification which should fit a man for just such an office. He is a thorough business man and has been allied with the business interests of this county all his life. He is quiet, unassuming and strictly business, and has a most complete knowledge of business methods and how financial matters matters should be conducted. If he is elected to the office of county treasurer—and every indication points to the fact that he will be the successful candidate—the taxpayers of the county may rest perfectly contented that the finances will be cared for in the best possible manner. Mr. Sackett at the present time holds the responsible position of note clerk at the Chemung Canal bank, which institution conducts one of the largest banking businesses in the state. For twenty-seven years he has been connected with the banking business and for that reason has a most complete business knowledge of financial matters end complicated financial accounts. Mr. Sackett has lived in Elmira all his life and his excellent reputation is too well known to every Elmiran to need discussion. It was on July 22, 1855, that Mr. Sackett was born—it also being the same year that Democratic nominee for governor was born—and they will go into office together. The Democratic nominee for treasurer's birthplace was at No. 28 East Water street in what was then the old Fourth ward. He is a descendant of one of the very oldest families in the county and comes from a family whose sterling worth has always been a matter of Chemung county history. Elisha Sackett, grandfather of the Democratic Democratic nominee, came to Elmira about 1825. He was a builder and at that time the present city of Elmira was known as Newtown. He moved here from Spencer and before that time had lived in New York. He was associated with Major Riker in the building business and in 1812 was called to Buffalo to build the first frame building in that city. Mr. Sackett's father was Caleb W. Sackett, who in 1855 conducted a bakery business at the corner of Lane and Carroll streets, the present location of Bundy's grocery.
    His death occurred about thirty-three years ago. Mr. Sackett, the Democratic candidate for treasurer, received his preliminary education in the public schools of this city. He attended both the Sullivan street and William street schools.
    On January 13, 1872, he entered the employ of the Pittston and Elvira Coal company, and remained with them just one year, lacking a few days. In 1873 he resigned that position to enter the Second National bank and remained with that institution until about the time of the big flood of 1859. In June of that year he accepted a lucrative position with the Chemung Canal bank and ever since that time has been one of their valuable attaches.
    Mr. Sackett is a prominent member of the Royal Arcanum, being a member of Chemung council, No. 208, of this city. He is prominent socially as well as in business circles and particularly happy in his home life. He was married twenty-two years ago and with his wife and daughter resides in their pretty home at No. 612 Maple avenue. Last spring the residents of the Eleventh ward showed their appreciation and confidence in the Democratic nominee for treasurer by electing him alderman, and his excellent record n the common council shows how well he has justified their selection. When a young man Mr. Sackett was a member of the Elmira volunteer fire department and served efficiently as a member of company No. 2, being at that time but nineteen years of age. Members of the department remember well his popularity in the company. Mr. Sackett has always been alive to the interests of the city and has assisted in more than one enterprise. He has always been one of the enthusiastic of the local base ball "fans" and has year after year aided liberally in maintaining every team Elmira has put in the field. He was such an earnest supporter that the members of one team took his name and called themselves Sackett's pets. Mr. Sackett takes much interest in all athletic sports and out door exercises and in his younger days was himself a good base ball player. He is well known and very popular with all classes alike and any one who knows him can not fail to like him. With his genial and pleasant ways he makes friends wherever he goes. There is not the slightest suspicion of a point that could ever be raised in opposition to Mr. Sackett's candidacy and the election to the office of county treasurer would be but a just honor. He is a gentleman and thorough good fellow and adds material strength to the strong county ticket. Sackett, Lynch, Weeks, Green and Colegrove make a quintette (sic) that is hard to equal and with the Hon. John B. Standfield to head the ticket should carry the county with a handsome majority."

    Woman Accused by Her Employer
    Mrs. Addie Sackett of Delaware Avenue Boarding-house must plead to petit Larceny.
    Smith Gone Ten Months
    During that Time, so he says, Mrs. Sackett shook him down for about $1,000.
    Mrs. Addie Sackett of No. 393 Delaware avenue will be arraigned in the Police Court this morning to answer a charge of petit larceny. While the theft alleged in the warrant of arrest involves only $17.50, Mrs. Sackett's accuser charges that she has stolen about $1,000 from him. Mrs. Sackett denies taking any such amount as that, and says there was no criminal intent in what she did.
    Her accuser is George D. Smith, owner of a large boarding-house at No. 33 West Tupper street. Last July Mr. Smith hired Mrs. Sackett as housekeeper to take charge of his boarding-house while he went to Saint Louis to open a temporary hotel during the fair. He was gone for six months, then went to Florida and was gone four months more.
    Upon his return he discovered, so he alleges, that his housekeeper had been juggling the accounts to her profit, and he then began the investigation which resulted in his swearing out the warrant.
    "While I was at Saint Louis and in Florida," said Mr. Smith to a reporter for The Express yesterday, "I received letters from her saying that the house was losing money, that the business was dull and there were very few boarders. As a matter of fact, as I learned when I got back, the house was practically full all the time, and she was pocketing money she collected from the boarders.
    "To cover up her misappropriations, she doctored the account books. In some instances she collected money from new boarders who stayed only a few weeks and never made a record of their being there at all; in many instances she made false entries of the date of their arrival so as to make it appear that they had been there a much less period than they really had been there.
    "For instance, take the case specified in the warrant I swore out for her arrest. In this case she had a roomer named Thomas entered in the book as having arrived on March 7th, whereas, in fact, as she afterward confessed to me, and as I can show by his laundry account, he came on January 17th. That is a period of seven weeks during which she collected $17.50 from him, not one cent of which she turned over to me, and no part of which was entered in the book.
    "I have a list of 80 different boarders or roomers on whose accounts Mrs. Sackett knocked down from a few dollars to as high as $45 during my absence. It has taken me weeks to untangle her accounts and get the proofs against her, and I am now prepared to show that she did me out of about $1,000 during the ten months I was away."
    "When I first confronted her with my accusation," continued Mr. Smith, "she confessed that she had made some of the collections that she ought to have turned over to me, but declared that the total wouldn't exceed $400. The next day she told me the amount of her shortage wouldn't be over $300, and the next day after that, in the presence of my lawyer, Louis E. Desbecker, she cut it down to $200, but I can show by boarders and other proofs that she got away with about $1,000 if not more.
    "I asked her what she had done with the money. She said she didn't know. I have reason to believe, however, that she bought a dictionary, a sewing machine and other things which she apparently intended to give as wedding presents to one of her daughters who is about to be married."
    Mrs. Sackett is about 40 years old, a widow with three daughters, and is well known in Geneseo, where she lived up to about three years ago, when she came to Buffalo.
    Mrs. Sackett's Story.
    "I confess to what I have done, but protest against being charged with more than I have done," she said last evening. "Mr. Smith has accused me unjustly. His house will accommodate 60 boarders. I have his own statement in writing that there were only seventeen in the house when he went to Saint Louis, and the house was never anywhere near full while he was away.
    "I never intended to do anything wrong. It was a complicated system. I had to keep three sets of books, and I had never kept books before. The laundry accounts alone were enough to set anyone crazy. It was a bewildering task to keep track of the accounts, and I can mention dozens of payments I made for the house that are not in the books. Where the money went I don't know, but when I came to figure it up I found I was short $85. I had no money to replace it and I became frightened and it was in that state of mind that I tore out some of the pages and made the accounts over, changing the dates and so forth. But I never intended to wrong Mr. Smith, and it was I myself who was first to let him know of my deficit. I claim now that it cannot possibly exceed $300, including even the $100 that he wants to charge me for entertaining my relatives, although he had agreed to let me have a room for them.
    "He offered to settle the whole matter if I would pay him $300, my own figures. I agreed, but he changed his figures, and my attorneys advised me to have no further dealings with him. He has used me meanly, and I say now that I'll go to jail before I'll pay him a cent, although I stood ready, up to the time he raised his figures, to pay him every cent I owed him."

He alleges that she, while in his employ between June 16th, 1904, and April 15th, 1905, "falsified, altered, erased, obliterated or destroyed" certain accounts contained in the books in her charge and that by so doing was able to and did defraud him of a certain amount of money.

    Peter C. Williams
    Peter Copeland Williams, the youngest child of Albert and Melinda Sackett Williams was born in the town of Ashford, N.Y., May 27, 1844.
    He was one of a family of seven, all of whom lived to a ripe age and crossed the Divide before him.
    He resided in Ashford about thirty-eight years, marrying Vashti Hopkins in 1863. After her death he returned to the old Williams homestead. In 1868 he married Miss Elizabeth Jones and to them were born three children, two of whom died in infancy.
    After the death of his father, Mr. Williams purchased the old Palmer farm near Springville where he resided until after the death of his wife in 1898. He spent some months in the West among relatives and in 1901, he married Mrs. Josie Jones of Great Valley, N.Y., and retired from the farm. Mr. Williams was genial, friendly and neighborly, he never grew old, was always a boy at heart.
    For a number of years he was Overseer of Poor for the town of Concord.
    He was a member of I.O.O.F. of Springville. The members of this order have shown, during the long period of his helplessness, that they do not forget a brother who drops from active life.
    Mr. Williams also belonged to Lodge No. 351, F. & A.M.
    Mr. Williams has been partially paralyzed for over six years and a complete "shut-in" for two years. He was very tenderly cared for by Mrs. Williams. He fell asleep Saturday evening, Jan. 7, 1922.
    His funeral was held at the Baptist church, Wednesday, Rev. Geo. K. Hamilton officiating. Burial in Fairview cemetery.
    Mr. Williams is survived by his widow and one daughter, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
    "As ye sow, so shall ye reap," was exemplified at his death. He had always been kind and helpful in time of need or sorrow, and every one came to comfort and assist the family in their time of bereavement.

    Worked in Movie Industry 42 Years — From Silent Films to Double Features
    If the big wheels of Hollywood should ever make Academy awards to some of the "little people" of the movie industry, Penn Yan will have a leading contender for an "Oscar" for long and faithful service.
    This man, who has lived with movies since their infancy—from the old nickelodeon days when slapstick comedy and tear-jerking "mellerdramers" were the feature one-reelers—is Nathaniel P. "Nat" Sackett of 327 Elm street, Penn Yan.
    Now the chief projectionist at the Elmwood theatre in Penn Yan, Nat started in the motion picture business in 1908 — and his main qualification was a fine singing voice and a knowledge of popular ballads of the day. It was at the old Theatorum on Main street (where the NYS Electric & Gas Corporation office is today) that Mr. Sackett was employed to fill in between reels with songs, while the ambidextrous projector operator rewound and changed reels.
    The songs were illustrated with colored slides and the audience was cajoled by young Nat to join in each chorus. Heart-throbbing accompaniment was provided on the piano by Miss Eunice Frame who also furnished the musical background for the silent films on the old stage upright piano.
    The Theatorum was owned by the Wickham brothers of Perry, and two years later when they opened a larger movie emporium on Elm street, Mr. Sackett went along. This building, located where Allen's lunchroom is now, was re-modelled from an old blacksmith shop to a motion picture house by simply lining the walls with ordinary building paper.
    By now, Nat had learned how to operate the crude projectors, wooden frame machines placed in stuffy booths where the loose film was left to coil in a basket until rewound. Also running movie projectors in Penn Yan at this time was a man who later became one of the key projectionists of the Schine chain in the eastern United States—Lewis M. Townsend. On many occasions, Mr. Townsend was manipulating the silent reels while Nat vocalized on the stage. Mr. Townsend died in Rochester on Oct. 16, 1950.
    Eager to step out in the movie business on his own, Nat purchased the Wickhams' interest in the two theatres, and introduced three acts of vaudeville between reels. The old Shearman house, where today the Elmwood theatre stands was the favourite stop-over for vaudevillians appearing in Penn Yan.
    Later, Nat was employed at the Cornwell theatre over the J. J. Newberry store, the Sampson theatre on East Elm street, and in 1923 started work at the Elmwood theatre owned by Harry Morse. Mr. Sackett has worked there ever since, continuing his work when the theatre was taken over by the Schine chain in November of 1937.
    In his 42 years in the business, Nat estimates he has run more than 75,000 miles of film through the projectors—including the old silent machines, the "synchronized sound" devices with phonograph records that frequently skipped their timing with ludicrous results for the audience, and today's modern arc-light sound-track-on-film machines.
    Aside from the wonderful progress in movie entertainment made possible through the introduction of sound, Nat believes the greatest single change since he began work in 1908 was the switch about 1920 from the one-reeler to the feature full-length picture. In one double-feature movie today, almost 20,000 feet of film will spin through the sprockets of the projectors in the Elmwood projection booth.
    The first sound movies in Penn Yan were introduced about 1927, and the opening picture with sound synchronization on the film was "Broadway Melody," Nat recalls.
    Nat's first wife, Anne Dewan, died in 1936. He remarried in October, 1937, to Eleanor Bolger, and they have two children, Natalie Anne, 11, and Leland, 10.
    "Movies are better than ever," Nat agrees, but even today it requires an alert operator to maintain the intricate projectors, switching from one reel to the subsequent one without a break, and keeping the arc lights at a determined brilliance—and doing it all so smoothly that the average movie-goer is completely unaware of what goes on in the little projection booth upstairs.

    Conesus Lake's L. M. Sackett Dies
    The summer won't be quite the same at Conesus Lake this year. Leonard M. Sackett, known to cottagers past and present along the lake, died Sunday (May 23, 1954) following an extended period of poor health.
    About 50 years ago Mr. Sackett located at Conesus Lake and about 30 years ago opened up a business in what is now known as Sackett's Harbor on the west side of the lake. The business included a boat livery, cottages, an old-fashioned country general store, gasoline station, real estate and insurance.
    As one friend put it, "He was too busy for many hobbies." For years his store and other establishments were the center of activity for cottagers in the area. Until last year, when his health began to fail, Mr. Sackett personally ran the store.
    Only last week, Mr. Sackett returned to the lake after spending the winter with his son, John V. Sackett, in Syracuse. A few hours before his death, Mr. Sackett was taken to the Wyoming Community Hospital in Warsaw where he died.
    Mr. Sackett was born in Eckford, Mich., and attended Brockport Normal School (now Brockport State Teachers College). He held teaching posts in Geneseo and Conesus and at one time was principal of Margaretville High School as well as president of Margaretville Training School for Teachers.
    He was a member and past master of Margaretville Masonic Lodge, 389, and a member of the Odd Fellows. He was a charter member of Geneseo Grange.
    In addition to his son, John, Mr. Sackett is survived by another son, Leland D. Sackett of Geneseo, and a sister, Mrs. William J. Davy of Bergen.
    Masonic rites will be held at 8 p.m. today in the Findlay Funeral Home, Geneseo. Funeral services will be conducted there at 2 p.m. Thursday by the Rev. William H. Dilts, pastor of Geneseo Presbyterian Church. Burial will be in Scottsburg Cemetery, Scottsburg.

    Much beloved Sister, Aunt, Teacher, Coach, Mentor, and Friend, Janice Sackett Williams, born in Riga, New York, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 27, 2015, at the age of 89.
    Janice graduated from Lock Haven University, Lock Haven, PA, and went on to teach physical education and coach women's field hockey for over 45 years, the predominance of which were spent at Akron Central School, Akron, NY. She still holds a record as one of the most "winning" coaches in women's high school field hockey in the state of New York. More importantly, she was ahead of her time in teaching young women that they were not second class citizens to young men, and impressing upon her corner of the world that she expected her female students and athletes to be treated equally with the male students and athletes. After her retirement, she spent time with her friends and family, travelled the world, and enjoyed her life to the fullest. She will be greatly missed, was one of a kind, a force to be reckoned with, and loved dearly.
    She was preceded in death by her parents, John Lemuel and Florence Wells Sackett, her husband, Merle F. Williams, and her nephew John L. (Rose) Sackett, III.
    Janice is survived by her three siblings, Jane S. Uhle, Joan S. (Ralph) Spaulding and John L. (Jean) Sackett, Jr., her two nieces, Deborah S. (Jay) Miller and Alexandra Spaulding, a nephew, Charles (Amy) Sackett , several grand-nieces and nephews, and many, many dear friends.
    A Celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2015, at the Akron Masonic Lodge, 63 John Street, Akron, N.Y., from 3-6pm, with a Tribute to Janice beginning at 4pm.
