Werien/Warren J Sackett
Warren bought 80 acres of land in Jackson CountyG on 30 May 1837.4
In 1850 Warren was living in Concord, Jackson County, MichiganG, and was recorded in the census as Warren Sackett, a farmer, aged 56 and born in Massachusetts. Living with him were his wife Betsey, 35, and their children, Frances, 18, Abigail, 11, Jacob, 10, and George, aged four.5
DNA test results for Warren Sackett's gg-grandson, Glenn Sackett, match those of participants with well-documented ancestries linking back to Simon Sackett the colonist and, through him, to Thomas Sackett the elder of Thanet, Kent.
It may be concluded that Warren was a descendant of Thomas Sackett the elder, or at least shared a common ancestor with him. Although not proved, it is likely that Warren was a descendant of Simon Sackett the colonist.
Candidates for Warren's parents are Solomon Sacket and his wife Betsey Kellogg who were married in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in 1793. The Kellogg Genealogy states that this couple were childless. But two children, a boy and a girl, are listed in Solomon's household in 1800 and 1810. The children were aged 10 to 15 in the 1810 census, fitting with Solomon and Betsey's marriage date. DNA test results for Warren's descendant, Joe Grokett, that may support this hypothesis are being evaluated.
