122. William Sackett, 1727–1802, of Newtown, L. I., son of (27) John and Elisabeth Field Sackett, was married, Feb. 14, 1749, to (141) Anne Lawrence, daughter of Capt. John Lawrence and his wife (31) Patience Sackett. Mr. Sackett was by occupation a farmer and lived and died on the farm at Newtown on which he was born. (This William Sackett seems to have been a pronounced Loyalist, and if so, is unquestionably the William Sackett of Queens County, who acknowledged allegiance to King George in 1776, and is mentioned by Sabine as an addresser of Lt. Col. Sterling in 1779.)
