  • The Berkshire County Eagle, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, 11 Jan 1883, p 2
    Mrs Abigail Collins, who recently died at Huntington at the age 92, had been for a long time the oldest person in town. Her father, Zavan Sackett, was one of the early settlers of Norwich—now Huntington. Sackett built the bouse occupied by the late Garry Munson at Norwich Bridge, and there his daughter Abigail was born. In 1816 she married Charles Collins, who, in company with his father, was proprietor of the "tavern" at Falley's X Roads, now Huntington village. Mr Sackett, with his family, removed to Ohio, when he attained the same great age of the daughter who has just died. All his seven sons lived beyond three-score-and-ten, and were eminent for piety and influence. Mrs Collins was early left a widow with six children, all of whom reached maturity. Her eldest son, Henry, a merchant in New York and a member of Plymouth church, died at his residence in Brooklyn the past year. The children who survive are: Havington C. Collins of Huntington, Mrs Charles Pitt of Pittsfield, Erastus Collins of Westfield, James Collins of Philadelphia and Mrs Frances Gleason of Huntington. Mrs Collins was one of three or four women who began holding little prayer-meetings in the Falley X Roads schoolhouse, which eventually led to the first church organization in the place. To the last she retained her interest in church and society. Mrs Emmeline Lindsey, whose funeral took place on the day of Mrs Collin's death, was scarcely less remarkable for energy and mental activity. She was the mother of Sheriff G. M. and James V. Lindsey, and was 86 years of age. Mrs Collins and Mrs Lindsey had been neighbors for many years, and were the two oldest members of the Second Congregational church.

    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.

    Were Married 61 Years Ago
    Mr. and Mrs. John Putman Quietly Celebrated Anniversary at Home of Daughter, Mrs. Edward Black, Saturday.
    Saturday, October 25, 1913, rounded out the sixty-first year of married life for Mr. and Mrs. John Putman, who every winter for four years have resided at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Edward Black, 834 Oak street. On account of the feeble health of Mrs. Putman, who is in her eighty-first year, the day was only quietly celebrated, but many messages of congratulation and felicitation were received from relatives and friends in this city and other places. Mr. Putman has passed his 85th birthday, but notwithstanding his age, is hale and hearty, not having been ill in forty-seven years. His mind is as clear as a man of middle age and he takes a keen interest in the affairs of the day. Mr. and Mrs. Putman are consistent Presbyterians and the former attends his bible class and church as regularly today as he has all his life.
    Mrs. Putman, on account of having suffered a stroke of paralysis, is not able to be out. She is lovingly and tenderly cared for by her husband and children and her cheerfulness and content despite her sufferings make her an example of patience to all who know her.
    The worthy couple spends the summer time with another daughter, Mrs. O. T. Merkle, of Paris, Ill., and in the latter city as well as in Quincy and numerous other places where they have resided in the past, they have many warm friends. Besides Mrs. Black and Mrs. Merkle, they have two other children, Homer C. Putman, of North Dakota, and Mrs. E. P. Vail, of Chicago.
    On October 25, 1852, Mr. Putman took as his bride Miss Martha A Sackett, a young school teacher of Beardstown, Ill. The bride's parental home was in Talmadge, Ohio, and she came to Illinois to teach in 1851. That same year she made the acquaintance of Mr. Putman and the following year became his bride. Mr. Putman iis a native of New York state, his birthplace having been near Schenectady. He came west with his parents when a child, Illinois having been his home 82 years. Mr. Putman was a jeweler for over 50 years, having been an especially expert watch maker. He also invented a number of useful articles. Mr. and Mrs. Putman lived for 15 years after their marriage in Beardstown and then removed to Rushville, where they lived for 15 years. They then returned to Beardstown and later to Lovington, Ill. They made their home at the latter place until four years ago, when on account of Mrs. Putman's declining health, they went to live with their daughters. Quincy has two worthy remarkable people as its residents in Mr. and Mrs. Putman for they have lived through the greater part of a century that is one of the greatest in the world's history.

    T. H. Sackett of Livermore, returned Friday night from Ocotlan, Jalisco state, Old Mexico, where he attended the funeral of his father Orin Sackett, who was drowned there two weeks ago. Mr. Sackett flew to El Paso in his private plane, took the Mexican Central airlines from El Paso to Leon and then went by rail from Leon to Ocotlan, a city which is located about six miles from his father's banana plantation.
    Orin Sackett was drowned in a storm on Lake Ocotlan on the evening of Jan. 29, when a boat, powered by an outboard motor, was capsized. Mr. Sackett had sailed across the lake to Ocotlan and was returning to his home when a stiff south wind swept across the lake raising large waves.
    The boat was not more than 200 yards from the landing on the plantation when it was turned over. Mr. Sackett, who was alone in the boat, was hurled into the water and was never seen again until his body was recovered the following morning by dragging.
    Mr. Sackett is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Keith Bellairs of Cheyenne, Wyo., his son Thorwald of Livermore, and his wife Florence of Ocotlan.
    He was well known in Fort Collins and the Livermore district as he had been a frequent visitor during the summer months at his son's ranch.
    The trip by air to Mexico was uneventful, according to Mr. Sackett, as excellent flying conditions were experienced all the way.
