She gave formal consent to his marriage, stating in the record that although John's parents were living they had "deserted their son and contributed no support for years".

Living with him were his wife Mary, 22, their six-month-old son Calvin, and John's widowed maternal grandmother Mary, aged 80 (listed as Sackett but was Hubbert.)9
     In 1910 he was living at Ferry Road, New Britain, Bucks County, PennsylvaniaG, and was recorded as John Sackett, a watch salesman, head of household, aged 31. He owned his home free of mortgage. Living with him were his wife Mary, 31, and their children, Calvin, 10, Delores, 8, and Abigail, aged three. The family were living next door but one to John's parents, William and Maria.10
