In 1880 Frederick was living in Pine Grove, Van Buren County, MichiganG, and was recorded in the census as Fred P Sackett, a farmer, head of household, aged 42. Living with him were his wife Susan, 36, and their children, Earl, 12, Andy, 10, Grace, 7, Stanley, 5, and Harry, aged three.5
He attended Kalamazoo College, Kalamazoo, Michigan for a time, probably after the war, and later taught school at the "Brown School", a country school near Kalamazoo, from the fall of 1866 until the spring of 1867. (The building was still standing when I last checked, about twenty years ago). Susan Earl was one of his pupils, an eighth grade student. He married Susan Earl on June 11, 1867, in Pine Grove, Michigan. He then turned to farming for a livelihood, and his farm was located at Gobles, Michigan.
He was six foot tall, rather lean and "rawboned"; "a man of good disposition, honest and never was involved in serious difficulties with anyone" according to his son, Frank Sackett. He was blue eyed and had dark brown hair. During his later years he lived on a Civil War Veteran's pension. He died October 16, 1905, at Gobles, Michigan and was buried at the Earl Family Cemetery, Pine Grove, Michigan.
