Rebecca Sacket, daughter of Jesse Sacket and Sarah Dewey, was born in Westfield, Hampden County, MassachusettsG, on 10 June 17461,2,3,4 and baptized at the Church of Christ, WestfieldG, on 22 June 1746.5 She married on 8 November 1771, probably in New Milford, Litchfield County, ConnecticutG, Salmon Carrington, son of Dr Riverius Carrington and Penelope Bordman.1,6,7,8,9 Salmon was born in New MilfordG on 18 December 1747.10 He died there aged 40 on 15 February 1788 and was buried at Center Cemetery, New MilfordG.11,12 A death (or perhaps a remarriage) record for Rebecca has not been found.
     Salmon died intestate. An inventory made on 30 April 1788 valued his personal estate at some £60, including livestock (5 hogs, 2 cows, a calf, a heifer, and a yoke of oxen) at £20. His real estate comprising six acres of land, still subject to his mother Penelope's widow's dower, was valued on 9 April 1790 at £13. These sums would have been insufficient to meet claims of £91 against his estate, including medical and other expenses incurred "in his last sickness."13
