Gertrude Adella Sackett

FatherSeymour Austin Sackett (1835-1896)
MotherMary Elizabeth Norwood
Gertrude Adella Sackett, daughter of Seymour Austin Sackett and Mary Elizabeth Norwood, was born in Greenfield, Franklin County, MassachusettsG, on 16 July 1887.1,2
     There are two records of a daughter born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, on 16 July 1887, one for Gertrude Adella in the Cambridge, Massachusetts, birth register, and one for Emily in the Greenfield register. It would be unlikely that twin daughters were not registered together and this would suggest that Gertrude and Emily were the same. Alternatively, if there were two daughters, it is possible that an error was made in recording the date of birth in one of the registers (both registers would have been written up some months later, the Greenfield register being dated February 1888 while the Cambridge register is undated).
