In 1850 James was living in Lumberland, Sullivan County, New York StateG, and was recorded in the census as J W Sacket, a millwright, aged 47 and born in New York. Living with him were hiis wife Nancy, 35, and their children, Laura, 15, William, 14, Susan, 12, James, 10, George, 7, Wesley, 3, and Frances, aged one.3
In 1860 Nancy was living in LumberlandG and was recorded as Nancy Sacket, aged 59. Living with her were her children, James, 26, George, 25, Wesley, 22, Frances, 16, Margaret, 12, and Charles, aged five. This census record must have been the enumerator's, or perhaps a neighbor's, "best guess". It must refer to this family, but the ages are all wrong: Nancy was 45, James 20, George 17, Wesley 13, Frances 12, and "Margaret" was Martha, aged 10.4
