Frank David Sackett

(1865-1954)
FatherCharles E Sackett (1842-)
MotherHannah Catherine Osterhout (1842-1910)
Frank David Sackett, teamster, railroad carpenter, son of Charles E Sackett and Hannah Catherine Osterhout, was born in Hallstead, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, on 25 November 1865.1,2,3 He died aged 88 in Binghamton State Hospital, Broome County, New York StateG, on 24 January 19544,5 and was buried at Rose Hill Cemetery, BinghamtonG.6 He married in Windsor, Broome County, New York StateG, on 4 October 1888, Rose E Gifford.1,7 Rose was born in New York StateG in December 1869.1 She died in 1939 and was buried at Rose Hill Cemetery, HallsteadG.6
     Nothing is known of Frank's early upbringing. Census records for him in 1870 and 1880 have not been found. As far as is known, his parents, Charles and Hannah, were not married, Charles probably being married to Augusta McDonald at the time of Frank's birth. A record for his mother Hannah in 1880 reveals that she had by then married Eli Mott and, at the date of the census, was living with Eli, their three children, and Frank's sister Carrie, then aged 14. Frank was not in this household.
     Identification of Frank's parents is taken from his marriage record when he named them as Chas E Sackett and Hannah Osterhout. On Frank's death certificate, his father was mistakenly stated to be Jobe Sackett. This would have been Charles's father, Nehemiah Jobe Sackett. The error may suggest a hazy recollection on the part of the informant that Jobe had had a part in Frank's upbringing.
     In 1900 Frank was living at Great Bend Township, Susquehanna County, PennsylvaniaG, and was recorded in the census as Frank Sackett, teamster, head of household, aged 33 and born in Pennsylvania. His house was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 30, and their children, Bertie, 9, Leon, 5, and Ethel, aged one. Also in the household was a male boarder.8
     In 1905 Frank was living in Binghamton, Broome County, New York StateG, and was recorded in the census as Frank D Sackett, a self-employed cartman, head of household, aged 37. Living with him were his wife Rose, 32, and their children, Bert, 13, and Ethel, aged six.9
     In 1910 he was living in Hallstead Borough, Susquehanna CountyG, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a laborer on the railroad, head of household, aged 43 and born in Pennsylvania. His house was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 41, their children, Ethel, 10, and Bert, 19, Bert's wife May, and Bert and May's four-month-old daughter Lillian.10
     In 1920 he was living in Binghamton, New York StateG, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a carpenter on the Erie Railroad, head of household, married, aged 50 and born in Pennsylvania. His home was rented. Living with him were his wife Rose, 40, daughter Ethel, 21, and Ethel's husband Carl Van Dusen, 24, also a railroad carpenter. Boarding in the household was a nine-year-old Charles Van Dusen.11
     In 1930 he was living in BinghamtonG in the household of his daughter Ethel and son-in-law Carl Van Dusen, and was recorded as Frank Sackett, a carpenter, aged 60 and born in Pennsylvania. Living with him was his wife Rose.12
     Frank was listed in the Binghamton City Directory from 1905. He was recorded in the 1906 edition as having removed to Great Bend. He returned to Binghamton by 1912 and was listed there again in 1916 through to at least 1944.13

  5. The naming on the death certificate of Frank's father as Jobe Sackett is an error. Frank stated on his marriage certificate that his parents were Chas E Sackett and Hannah Osterhout. Jobe would have been Nehemiah Jobe Sackett, Frank's grandfather. The informant for the death record probably had a hazy recollection that Jobe had had a part in Frank's early upbringing.
