    [As John and Lois are recorded as having been married for 10 years, it is assumed that the children listed are from previous marriages. The birth data suggest that William and Henrietta would have been the children of John, and Thomas would have been the son of Lois. Thomas may have taken the surname Sackett, although it is more likely that the enumerator mistakenly assumed that all members of the household were named Sackett.].
