Clark A. Sackett, a leading citizen of Tallmadge Township, residing on his farm of 136 acres, was born on this farm in Summit County, Ohio, May 15, 1837, and is a son of Clark and Laura (Aiken) Sackett.
The Sackett family is an old colonial one of New England. Benjamin Sackett, the grandfather of Clark A., died in Connecticut. His children were as follows: Simeon, who lived and died at Canfield, Mahoning County, Ohio; Myron, who died in Connecticut; Salmon, who died in Summit County; Moses and Benjamin, who lived in Connecticut; Clark and Aaron.
Clark A. Sackett attended the local schools and subsequently taught three terms, after which he engaged in farming and in operating a threshing machine. He owns a valuable farm of 136 acres on which he carries on a general line of agriculture, meeting with the success which has placed him among the substantial men of his section. Politically, he is a Republican and has always been a loyal suporter of the Government. During the Civil War he served through an enlistment in Company D, 164th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, which was mustered at Cleveland. The services of this company were utilized around the city of Washington and when they were no longer needed, the regiment was honorably discharged at Cleveland.
Clark A. Sackett was married (first) to Kate Ashmun, who was a daughter of M. Ashmun. He was married (second) to Lottie Austin, who was born at Newton Falls, Ohio, and is a daughter of Enos and Sarah (Sackett) Austin. The father of Mrs. Sackett was born in 1809, at Warren, Ohio, and died at Youngstown, in 1886. The mother of Mrs. Sackett was born in 1820, at Canfield, Mahoning County, Ohio, was married in 1840, and died at Youngstown, in 1883. Enos Austin and wife had three children, two daughters and one son, the latter of whom died in infancy. The daughters are: Phidelia, who married Frank Stiles, a resident of Youngstown, and Mrs. Sackett. The maternal grandparents of Mrs. Sackett were Myron and Orpha (Dean) Sackett, the former of whom was born at Warren, Connecticut, and the latter at Cornwall, Connecticut. This branch of the Sackett family can be traced to Simon and Isabella Sackett, members of the Pilgrim colony.
Prior to her marriage, Mrs. Clark A. Sackett taught for a number of years, first in the public schools of Youngstown and later in the Blind Asylum, at Columbus. She is an accomplished lady. Both she and her sister were teachers, the latter for a period of twenty-five years. Both Mr. and Mrs. Sackett belong to the Congregational Church at Tallmadge, in which Mrs. Sackett is the organist. Mr. Sackett has served in a number of public positions, and has been both supervisor and trustee of Tallmadge Township.
