Children of Charles Sackett and Sarah Woods

496. Charles Sackett, 1780–1848, of Westfield, Mass., son of (166) Ozem and Mercy Weller Sacket, was married, Oct. 21, 1810, to Sarah Woods. In 1824, Mr. Sackett determined to leave New England with his family and find a new place of abode in the southwest. From Boston he traveled first by water to Philadelphia, and from thence, after a short sojourn, by wagons to Pittsburg, where he secured passage on a flat-boat, which carried the family down the Ohio River to Harrison's Creek. From there they, after a short period, again moved in a flat-boat on down the Ohio to Mauckport, from which point they journeyed in wagons through the wilderness to Corydon, Ind., where they purchased a farm; but a little later removed to Louisville, KY., which became their permanent home. In 1849, Mr. Sackett revisited Westfield, and died and was buried there.
