    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 Returns From Father's Funeral
    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.

    Emily J Sackett, died June 6, 1903. Aged 55 years 5 months and 26 days. She was born in Montgomery county, Ill., and married Jasper N. Sackett, April 6, 1865, at Hillsboro Montgomery county Ill., and in the year 1877 together they moved to Cherokee county, Kansas, and in 1890 they moved on their homestead in Payne county where they lived at the time of her death. In the death of Mrs Sackett, the community has lost an estimable kind and sympathetic woman. Her every day life was that of a true good woman, and many there are who will ever hold her memory in grateful rememberance. The deceased suffered an attack of paralysis. The remains were laid to rest in the Ingalls Cemetery, and were followed on their last journey by many friends. The sympathy of the entire community is given the family in their sorrow.
    "Tis hard to part with loved ones,
    But tis the fate of all
    The fairest flowers must wither,
    And the prowdest oak must fall
    A mother kind and true has gone,
    And sadly missed she'll be
    By her husband children friends
    Who loved her tenderly.
    A patient sufferer she has been,
    Cheerfully bearing her pain
    For months a helpless invalid
    Hoping to be well again.
    To us who mourn her death
    'Tis comfort in our sorrow
    To hope that in a better world
    We'll meet her on the morrow.
    A Friend.

    Hillsborough Man Killed in Nevada Snow Accident
    Percy Sackett Dies on Road West of Elko
    Car Hit Icy Spot and Overturned, Throwing Driver Out.
    A prominent bay area certified public accountant, Percy E. Sackett, 52, 457 El Arroyo road, Hillsborough, was killed instantly last night when his car skidded out of control in the midst of a heavy snowstorm near Elko, Nev., overturned and threw him to the pavement.
    Associates at Sackett's company, the Percy E. Sackett company at 105 Montgomery street, San Francisco, said he left Hillsborough about 9 a.m. yesterday to drive to Salt Lake City for medical treatment. He had planned to go to Las Vegas on business and had expected to be away about two weeks.
    Members of the accounting firm reported that they had contacted Nevada state highway patrol and learned that Sackett, who had planned to spend the night at Elko, had apparently been trying to reach Elko after leaving Reno when he became trapped in the midst of the storm, during which 10 inches of snow fell.
    Although there were no witnesses to the accident, officers theorized Sackett's car hit an icy spot on the pavement, skidded around and overturned several times, throwing him out. He apparently was killed instantly when his head hit the pavement.
    Other motorists found the wreckage and Sackett's body when they came upon the scene.
    Before moving to the bay area about 10 years ago, Sackett practiced in Washington, D.C., where he was also registrar for Stroyer college.
    A director of several large corporations, Sackett was a leading income tax expert and held accounts with many large concerns.
    A Phi Beta Kappa, he was a graduate of University of Washington at Seattle.
    Active in Masonic work, Sackett was a member of Burlingame lodge No. 400, F. & A. M.; the Islam Shrine in San Francisco and the Royal Order of Jesters. He was a past president of the Islam Shrine club of San Mateo.
    Other organizations of which he was a member included Lodge No. 1112, B.P.O.E. of San Mateo; the Press and Union League club of San Francisco and the Accountants association of San Francisco.
    Survivors include his widow, Dorothea, and two children, Jeanne Anne, 15, and Geoffrey A. Sackett, 13.
    Funeral services are pending the arrival of his body Sunday at Crosby-N. Gray chapel in Burlingame.

    Crash Fatal To Accountant
    Elko.—Percy E. Sackett, 52, San Francisco certified public accountant, was killed on Emigrant pass in Eureka county 35 miles west of here Thursday night when the car in which he was riding alone went out of control and he was thrown from the vehicle.
    Apparently on his way to Salt Lake City on business the accident occurred when a tire blew out between 6:30 and 7 p.m. Thursday, a Nevada highway patrolman reported.
    The automobile swerved across the highway, struck a cliff and sprung the door open. Mr. Sackett was hurled through the open door against the rocks, fracturing his skull and breaking his neck.
    A passing motorist notified the highway patrol.
    The accident was the first Nevada highway fatality of December. Mr. Sackett's death brought the Nevada road toll to 165 for 1955, nine above the total for the previous record year of 1953.

    He was thrown from the car and slammed head first into a rock cliff. He was dead on arrival at Elko General Hospital.
    His death brought Nevada's fatality toll for 1955 to 165 and that of Eureka county to four.

    Gobleville Private Bank Closes Doors
    Goblevillle, Mich., Mar. 8—Regarded as one of the strongest banks in Van Buren county, the Gobleville Exchange bank, operated by Stanley Sackett, reputed to be one of the wealthiest men in this part of the state, closed its doors yesterday.
    The bank, which has been a private institution, carries deposits from all parts of the county, and practically every business man in Gobleville was a depositor.
    Sackett left town Thursday afternoon but returned here yesterday afternoon with Judge A. J. Mills of Kalamazoo. When he stepped off the train he was met by a crowd of depositors who demanded to know why the bank had been closed.
    Judge Mills mounted a platform and, in a brief address, stated he was sure his client had enough assets left in the bank to pay every depositor in full, and that the bank had been closed only because of anxiety and worry on the part of his client.
    "I am sure the bank will be opening in a short time as a state bank," the judge told the depositors. The crowd demanded the bank be opened and an immediate investigation be made of the books. Finally it was decided to appoint a committee to do this.
    Sackett, Judge Mills and the committee went to the bank late in the afternoon and were still there last night.
    Sackett 20 years ago was a farmer boy. He suddenly decided to start a bank. His institution seemed to be a success instantly and for six years it has been one of the biggest banking institutions in the county.

    Gobleville Bank Will Be Opened Again
    Kalamazoo, Mar. 10—The Gobleville Exchange bank at Gobleville, which closed its doors Friday morning, will be reorganized within the next week and the institution will come under the control of the state, according to the statement of Judge Alfred J. Mills of this city, attorney for Stanley Sackett, president of the bank, whiich he made at Gobleville to depositors.
    Sackett and a committee of depositors composed of Dr. C. L. Bennett, Fred Stark, L. O. Graham and Wm. Miller visited the building and made an inspection of the records. Up to the present time nothing which would implicate Sackett in any way has been discovered.
    Judge Mills talked freely. He said: "There is absolutely nothing wrong with the bank and depositors will receive every cent which they intrusted to the care of my client. Overconfidence on the part of the president and the fact that a goodly amount of the money is tied up in real estate caused the closing."
    The Exchange bank at Gobleville is the only institution of its kind in the village and every business man in the place is a depositor.
    Sackett is an old resident of Gobleville and has had charge of the bank for twenty years. He is considered absolutely reliable by the citizens.

There are many of the depositors who do not believe that the bank will be able to pay back in full, but Sackett declares that he has enough assets to insure a complete settlement.

    Tragic Death of Craig Boy
    A distinct shock was felt by this entire community Sunday morning when it became known that Vern Sackett had met instant death about 4 o'clock when his auto ran into a ditch west of the Ross Ernst place. He was returning from Hooper where he had attended a dance and was followed in another car by Milo Longwell and both were hurrying to escape a storm which threatened. The exact facts of the tragedy will never be known as Vern was alone; whether his lights failed, steering gear broke or the wind and dust caused the car to swerve. When Longwell came up Sackett was dead and the car was on him in such a way that help had to be called to get him out of the wreckage. His neck was broken, both legs broken and his chest injured.
    Vern C. Sackett was born July 22d, 1903, at Craig, Nebraska, son of Charles W. Sackett and Susie L. Patterson Sackett, and died Sunday morning, June 30th, 1928 [sic: 1929], near Craig.
    Vern spent nearly all his boyhood years in and near Craig and Alder Grove, making his home mostly with his grandma Patterson and uncle Virgil and aunt Flora Patterson; spending several years with his father and brothers at Valier, Montana and Cortland, Nebraska.
    He lived in his father's home during his early school days in Craig and was a graduate of the Craig High School, completing the 12 grades.
    In January 1927, he joined the U.S. Navy, enlisting at Omaha, Nebr. He was sent to the Naval Training Quarters at San Diego, California, remaining there for several months later being sent to Hampton Roads Naval Training School. From there he received an honorable discharge from the Navy by special order of the Bureau of Navigation April 9, 1925, and recommended for re-enlistment on April 12th, 1928, his discharge papers bear the notation "Character of Service Good."
    In early life Vern joined the M. E. Church at Craig under the preaching of W. D. Stambaugh who was Pastor at that time.
    His many friends are his best testimony of his life and character. None but high words of praise of his character and sterling worth are uttered.
    Vern met his death through accident in his car June 30th, 1929.
    Vern leaves to mourn his death his father, three brothers, Arthur, Keith, and George, and his stepmother, Anna V. Sackett; his four uncles, Virgil, Erastus, Everett, and Harley Patterson and his aunt Flora Patterson.
    Short services were held at the Patterson home Tuesday afternoon and at the M. E. church at 2:30, conducted by the pastor, Rev. David Simpson.

    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.

He was postmaster at Itasca for about a year and was also a notary public in Sherman Center.

Todd of Beatrice, Nebr. Later he was married to Mary E. Stearns, also of Akron, Ohio, who departed this life at Cameron, Mo., November 1, 1886, H. E. Sackett and Miss Charlotte M. Sackett, both of this city, being the children of this union.
    His parents were pioneer members of the Christian church which faith he also embraced in early manhood under the teachings of Alexander Campbell. His gifts to the church were always commensurate with his ability, during his active life.
    As did many young men of his time, he made the trip across the plains following what is now known as the Oregon Trail, crossing Gage county in 1866, returning home from Portland, Oregon, by way of the Isthmus of Panama crossing this point at a later date. He moved to Cameron, Mo., in 1874 where he resided for a number of years.
    Mr. Sackett came to Beatrice from Cameron, Mo., 9 years ago and has since made his home with H. E. Sackett, his son.

    Chas. McPhail Suicide at Farm Home Friday
    Sat Down Under Tree and Shot Self Through Heart with Pistol; Burial Set for Friday
    Charles McPhail, 66, farmer living three miles south of Ingalls, committed suicide near his home early Friday morning, May 29, 1931, by shooting himself through the heart with a .45 caliber U.S. government automatic pistol.
    The suicide's body, propped against a tree about 200 yards from his farm house, was found by Mrs. McPhail, who heard the shot.
    Poor health and despondency are thought to be responsible for his suicide, believes Sheriff M. J. Bradley, who with County Attorney Ernest Jenkins, investigated the case early Friday.
    The theory that financial matters may have caused the death was discounted by Sheriff Bradley who said McPhail was a prosperous farmer with considerable acreage in cultivation.
    The decedent is said to have returned home from Ingalls late Thursday in a dejected condition and to have got his gun. Mrs. McPhail removed the cartridges but some time during the night or early morning they were discovered by the decedent. He was seen to leave the home between 5 and 6 o'clock Friday morning and sat down under the tree where he shot himself.
    Charles McPhail was born near Walshville, Ill., October 18, 1865. He was married to Geneva Stallings July 31, 1906. He came to Oklahoma in 1905 and settled on the farm where he lived until his death.
    The decedent is survived by his widow, two brothers, Tead McPhail, Walshville, Ill., and Hall McPhail, Litchfield, Ill.; two half-sisters, Mrs. Lizzie Barlow, Walshville, Ill.; and Mrs. Mattie Hudspeth, Walshville, Ill.; a half-brother, Lon McPhail, Litchfield, Ill.
    Funeral services were conducted at the Strode Funeral home Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

    Guernsey Sackett.
    Yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, at his office in Park Row, New York, Guernsey Sackett of the firm of Sackett & Long, sank back in his chair and died. He had complained during the morning of feeling badly, and a carriage had been sent for to take him home. His son, who is a member of the firm, had noticed the symptoms of his father's illness and became very anxious, but no such sudden termination was expected. His sudden decease is attributed to heart failure, superinduced by an attack of the grip dating from last January. The body was removed to his home, 477 Greene avenue, this city, later in the afternoon.
    Mr. Sackett studied law with Ira O. Miller in the old American Exchange Building in the years preceding the war, and finally took charge of the real estate law department of Boardman & Boardman. He was an expert in real estate law, and looked upon as an authority. In his younger days he was considered an athlete. He was a large, fine-looking man, and unusually strong. He never lost that strength until his last attack of illness. With gray hair and full gray beard, well formed, Mr. Sackett was one of the class of men who attract instant and particular attention.
    Always an active Republican, in his younger days he was a decided Abolitionist. He supported John C. Fremont and Abraham Lincoln in strong and earnest speeches. In his later days he applied himself to business, and was not often seen on the political platform; but when he did appear, it was always with wise counsel born of experience.
    He was a member of the Union League Club and of its governors, a vestryman of the Church of The Reformation, and a member of many of the Masonic organizations of high degree.
    Mr. Wilson, ex-president of the Union League Club, called at Mr. Sackett's office shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday and tendered his services. He spoke in high terms of Mr. Sackett as a lawyer and as a citizen, and expressed a very high appreciation of Mr. Sackett's valuable services to the Union League Club, of which he was a charter member.
    "During the first three years of my administration," continued Mr. Wiilson, "Mr. Sackett was a regular attendant upon the meetings of the club, and took a very earnest interest in its welfare. I frequently sought his advice in matters pertaining to the administration of its affairs. During the past year, owing to ill-health, his presence at the meetings has been less frequent. His sudden death will be a great shock to the members of the club, and therre will be very deep sympathy with the stricken family."
    The Executive Committee of the Union League Club will meet to-morrow at 3 P.M. at the clubhouse to take action on the death of Guernsey Sackett, one of the founders of the club, and will pass resolutions of sympathy and respect.

Decorations on an elaborate scale added an indescribable beauty to the scene, the beautiful and fragrant groups of azaleas and other cut flowers being set off in artistic manner with stately palms and ferns. The bride, followed by her train, proceeded down the aisle, resting on the arm of her mother, she being attired in a white satin gown, with point lace trimmings and pearl ornaments, while her mother wore a black velvet dress with point lace trimmings. Miss Sackett's gown was surmounted by a tulle veil, caught up with a knot of orange blossoms and carried a large bouquet of white roses and lilies-of-the-valley. Miss Marie Josephine Delatour, the maid of honor, wore pink silk, and the bridesmaids, Miss Mae E. Lang and Sarah T. Kelley, organdy over silk. The ushers were Dr. James P. Warbasse, George R. Sheldon, Amos P. Haerley and Benjamin Haerley, and the best man Frederick Bagely, a lawyer from Buffalo. The bride was given away by her brother, John T. Sackett. After the ceremony the relatives and near friends repaired to the home of the bride, on Greene avenue, where a reception was held, and an abundant wedding breakfast was served. The many ornamental and useful presents received were displayed to good advantage in an upper room, and were admired by all. After the breakfast Mr. and Mrs. Harrison left the city on a ten days' trip to Washington, to reside on their return at the bride's home, where they will start housekeepiing. They have also decided to hold two receptions, May 3 and 10, for which extensive preparations will be made.

    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."

    An adjournment until next Monday morning at 10 o'clock was granted by Judge Murphy in police court this morning in the case of Addie A. Sackett, a bookkeeper, of 215 Allen street, who is under arrest on the charge of forgery in the third degree. George D. Smith of 33 West Tupper street is recorded as the complainant in the matter.
    The Sackett woman was formerly in the employ of Mr. Smith. 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.

    Henry Sackett
    The passing of Henry Sackett on Tuesday evening last cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood. Mr. Sackett was never known to be sick until a few weeks ago, when he was laid off by jaundice, which was not considered dangerous until a few days before his death. Born in New York State in 1844 he came to Canada with his parents when quite young. His parents first lived in the township of Darlington, but after there a few years came to the wilds of Fenelon, settling near Cameron. For over 55 years he lived and labored with the people of the township, helping to clear its forests and build their homes. Henry Sackett joined the Salvation Army shortly after the opening of this corps and has proven by his life to be a faithful member of that body. The deceased will be mourned by a circle of friends and neighbors who prized him for his Godly life and genial disposition.
    His wife, two sons, two brothers and two sisters are left to mourn his loss.

    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.

    Crescent City - Mrs. Oliver MacDonald died suddenly at her home in Paterson, N.J., last Friday morning, May 19th. Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald, who have spent several winters at Grove Hall, left here for their home in Paterson some four weeks ago, well and full of hope for a return next season. The sudden death of Mrs. MacDonald will be sad news to our people and all winter guests at our hotels. The following is from the Paterson Morning Call of last Saturday: "The many friends of Mrs. Henrietta, wife of J. Oliver MacDonald, will be pained to learn of her sudden demise, which occurred yesterday morning. The end came about 11 o'clock, after Mrs. MacDonald had been unconscious for two days, due to apoplexy.
    "Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald only a few weeks ago returned from Crescent City, Florida, about 100 miles south of Jacksonville, where it has been their custom to spend the winter months for some years, and Mrs. MacDonald was in the best of health and spirits. Early on Wednesday morning she was stricken with apoplexy, which proved fatal, and she never regained consciousness.
    "Mrs. MacDonald's maiden name was Henrietta Sackett, and she was a native of Long Island. She was about sixty years old. Mr. MacDonald was for many years senior superintendent of the local office of the Prudential Insurance company, but has lived in retirement for some years at No. 24 Garrison street.
    "Aside from her husband, Mrs. MacDonald leaves one son and two daughters, also nine grandchildren, to mourn her demise. These all reside in this city. Henrietta, the eldest, is the wife of Edward Van Houten, the well known local builder; John M. is an assistant superintendent of the Prudential Insurance company, and Ella A. is the wife of Charles B. Stagg.
    "The funeral will be held from her late residence on Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, and the interment will be made at Cedar Lawn."

    J. O. MacDonald Funeral Monday
    Well Known Wyckoff Resident Passed Away Last Friday
    Funeral services were held on Monday afternoon for John Oliver MacDonald, from his late residence in Wyckoff.
    Mr. MacDonald, who has resided in this community during the past eight years of his life was a well known figure in this section of the state.
    He was born in Fort Lee on November 15, 1843, and spent the early years of his life there, coming to Paterson sixty-seven years ago when he entered the insurance business to become the first superintendent of the Prudential Life. This was in the year 1878, and he continued with this company until his retirement in 1892.
    Mr. MacDonald traces his ancestry back to the Bourdette family, who were of French origin and of the Reformed faith. When the Revocation of the dict [sic: edict] of Nantes caused the emigration of thousands of Huguenots from France, a Bourdette was among those who sought a new home in foreign land. This member came to one of the West India Islands and prospered as a planter. In course of time the planter's son Etienne was sent to New York to complete his education, but like many another before and after him, Etienne found New York so attractive that his education continued to the end of his life. Later some of his forebears founded a home in Fort Lee and here during the Revolutionary War they rendered valuable aid to Washington and their country, and here years later John Oliver MacDonald was born, a descendant of this illustrious family.
    Mr. MacDonald had been ill but a short time when he passed away last Friday. The services were in charge of Dr. J. W. Marshall, an old friend of the family, who paid a fitting tribute to the memory of the departed. Dr. C. H. Van Glahn of Allendale also assisted at the service and Isaac McCrum rendered the ever beautiful hymn, "Abide With Me."

    Fred Sackett, Jr.
    Fred Sackett, Jr. died on Sunday, June 22, 1997, at his home in Austin after a brief bout with lung cancer. He was 75.
    Fred was fond of reminiscing about his British immigrant grandfather, Henry Sackett, who arrived on horseback in Coleman County in time to join the Texas Ranger garrison at Camp Colorado, Texas, in their last fight against Indain marauders. After the land was secured, Henry Sackett bought the fort's headquarters building, married the commandant's daughter, Mary McNamara, and settled down to build a sizable ranch and rear eleven children, the second of whom was Fred Sackett, Sr. Fred Jr. was born on hiis grandfather's ranch and grew up in what he considered idyllic circumstances. He always said that it was while lying on his back in the tall grass of the pasture, watching hawks circling gracefullly in the air, that he determined to become a flyer.
    He took flying lessons at an early age and made air acrobatics his hobby to such an extent that he was spotted by Air Corps brass in the days just before World War II. He was asked to instruct flying cadets and later transferred to the Ferry Command, graduating then to service as a pilot in the China-Burma-India Theatre - "Flying the Hump", as it was called. He completed in excess of forty missions.
    After the war he returned to Austin to resume his studies at the University of Texas, graduating with a degree in higher mathematics. While in university he supported himself and his wife, Dell, and small son by going to work for a construction firm, work he found so congenial and profitable that he continued it for many years. But in 1966, the death of his second son, Eric Sackett, in Vietnam, so embittered and saddened him that he decided on a new approach to living. Invited to join an investment firm, Rauscher-Pierce, he went back to school to learn a new business, and made investments his career until his retirement in 1986. He often billed himself as the only liberal stockbroker in Texas.
    A lifelong Democrat, Fred, from his youth onward, had been a champion of minority groups, and was proud of recalling an early triumph when he and a group of his high school friends shamed his school district into admitting black students to the local high school.
    A dedicated preservationist, Fred served on the board of the Austin Heritage Society for many years. Appointed to the Austin Library Commission, he served as its President for seven years, leading the Commission in its successful fight to add a fourth floor to the new Main Library, which planners had envisioned as a three-story building.
    He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Peggy Sackett; his mother, Fay Moneyhun Sackett of Coleman; his son, Fritz Sackett of Austin; his sister, Patsy Hill of Coleman; his niece, Tamara Mills; and his nephew, John Alllen Crockett, both of Coleman.
    Funeral arrangements are being made by Weed-Corley-Fish, and services will be at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 26, 1997.
    Pallbearers will be Paul Brown, Ronald Earle, Harold G. Robinson, Felder Thornhill, Bruce Todd and George Warren.

    Dell M. Sackett Goeres
    Dell M. Sackett Goeres tilted at her last windmill and left this world on July 31st 2006 following the quest she'd always called, "Life's last great adventure."
    Much of her life was truly an adventure. She was an artist, a writer, a musician, a newspaper editor, a commercial fisherwoman, a cook in her husband's logging mill in Cordova, Alaska, a proud liberal, and a "Yellow Dog Democrat."
    Dell was born in Coleman Texas to her mother Jewell Hughes Mitchell and father Viron Dell Mitchell on September 12th 1921, and spent much of her early years on her family's ranch near Novice, Texas.
    She was always a defender of the liberties and constitutional rights of minorities and the working class. She was on the front lines of the civil rights struggle and was on the original staff of the "Texas Observer" when the fledging paper was started, working closely with Ronnie Dugger the Observers first editor. She always callled July Fourth, "The American High Holy Day of Liberty."
    She was devastated by the loss of her youngest son Eric Sackett who was killed in Dong Pong Vietnam in 1966. Dell was also predeceased by her daughter in law Rae N. Witter-Sackett who was her primary caregiver after the curse of Alzheimer's drilled smokey tunnels through her once brilliant mind.
    She is survived by her son Frederick (Fritz) Sackett, her sister in law Patsy Sackett, her niece Tamara Crockett Mills and nephew John Allen Crockett. She had four step-grandchildren and eight step-great grandchildren. Dell also loved and considered Bill and Mary Godden to be part of her extended family.
    Wherever he shining light has gone - we hope she is now reunited with her family and old liberal crusaders and defenders of the down-trodden. Hopefully they are all now singing a rousting rendition of "Joe Hill."
    Vaya con Dios, our beautiful lady.
    A memorial service will be scheduled near her old home on the Blanco River at a later date.
