Oliver P. Sackett Dead.
Oliver P. Sackett, father of H. E. Sackett of this city, and for the past nine years a resident of Beatrice, died at the home of his son, 1510 Grant street, Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, aged eighty-four years.
Mr. Sackett had been sick for about a month, but his death came as a shock to the family and their friends.
The deceased leaves four children: Mrs. W. J. Todd, Harry E. Sackett and Miss Lottie Sackett of Beatrice and C. O. Sackett of Cameron, Mo.
Funeral services will be held from the residence at 10:30 o'clock Thursday morning, conducted by Rev. J. E. Davis of the Christian church. The remains will then be taken to Cameron, Mo., the former home of the deceased, and will be laid to rest beside those of his wife.
Oliver P. Sackett died at the home of his son, H. E. Sackett, Oct. 17, 1911. He was born in Canfield, Mahoning Co., Ohio, on January 19, 1828, being at the time of his death 83 years, 8 months and 28 days of age.
He came of a family of early pioneers who settled upon the Western Reserve of Ohio, coming from Warren Litchfield Co., Conn. He was a direct descendant of John Sackett, who together with his brother, Simon Sackett, were among the early Puritan colonists of New England, landing at Nantasket Roads off Boston Town February 5, 1631.
Benjamin Sackett, grandfather of the deceased, and Captain Justice Sackett, great grandfather, were soldiers in the War of the Revolution.
The deceased was married January 26, 1856 to Miss Elsie Turner of Akron, Ohio, who died April 27, 1871; of this marriage were born Charles O. Sackett now of Cameron, Mo., and Mrs. Lelia S. 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.
