7521a. Archie Adelmar Sackett, 1871–1898, son of (4351) Adelbert D. and Julia Griffin Sackett, was born at Windsor, O. At the breaking out of the war with Spain, he was in Wyoming, and there, in 1898, enlisted in Col. J. L. Torry's regiment of "Rough Riders." While in transit to the seat of war on a train of cars, he was detailed as a guard and assigned to duty on one of the car platforms. In passing through a tunnel he was overcome with smoke and gas, fell between the cars and was killed.
