Introduction:

During the Revolutionary War period, a son of Joseph Hackett of Freetown, Mass. and a daughter of another son married a sister and brother, children of the Anthony3 Booth (Benjamin2, John1) of Dartmouth, Mass., a neighboring town of Freetown, Mass. My primary research over the past seven years has focused on the descendents of John1 Booth of Marshfield by about 1644 and Scituate, Mass., who for the first 150 years were concentrated in Plymouth and Bristol Counties of Massachusetts. This double “Hackett-Booth Connection” motivated my recent research effort on the Hackett family side. Online postings (including but not limited to RootsWeb, Hackett-L and Booth-L archives) yielded some conflicting ideas, but most were undocumented or lacked reliable source citations. The objective was to see what facts could easily be found to support reasonable conclusions using mostly original, primary sources. The study was done relatively quickly, using primarily census (federal and state) and pension records that were readily available. This ruled out use of most land and probate records, which could yield valuable evidence not cited here, but are time consuming. Those sources need to be examined, if they have not been. The results presented here are tentative, and I invite your critique and additions of any kind, but especially if supported by evidence.

Note:  Unless “direct” evidence of either a parental or a marital relationship, and/or the location of those events, is found in a reliable source, I have labeled it “prob.” (probable) if I was able to find primary, original, “indirect” evidence that supports it.  If I found only one or two pieces of indirect primary and/or secondary evidence that suggests it might be true, and I have not been able to rule it out, I have labeled it “poss.” (possible). Also, please note that most arguments for my conclusions about relationships and other events are argued in the endnotes, so be sure to check those first for answers to questions that may arise. I am particularly interested in learning the female children of Josiah and Mary (Booth) Hackett, and I hope this posting helps someone.

Descendants of Joseph Hackett, Probably of Freetown, Massachusetts


Generation One

1.  Joseph1Hackett was born circa 1723 at prob. Freetown, Bristol Co., Mass.;[1] he died prob. between 4 Aug 1800 and 6 Aug 1810 at Oxford, Chenango Co., N. Y.[2] Joseph Hackett is head of household on the census of 2 Aug 1790 at Hillsdale, Columbia Co., N. Y.[3], and on the census of 4 Aug 1800 at Oxford, Chenango Co., N. Y.[4] It seems certain that Joseph arrived in Oxford from Hillsdale with two adult, married sons, Abel and Josiah, and their families, in 1798 or shortly before. This conclusion is based on Josiah’s sworn pension application stating he came to Oxford in that year from Hillsdale, and on the fact that all three of them appeared on the Oxford census rolls in 1800. Abel was also on the census rolls in Hillsdale, with apparently one son under 16 years old plus four females, suggesting that perhaps three of them could be his daughters. A “Henry Hackett” also appears on the 1800 Oxford census, a young man and his apparent wife, both of age 16 but less than 26 years, with no children. Subsequent events suggest that this is a son of Abel, rather than Josiah. The latter is perhaps old enough to be Henry’s father, but from knowledge of Josiah’s marriage date, the ages of his known children, and Mary Booth’s available birth intervals, we can rule Josiah out. In addition to Henry, Abel arrived with or acquired in Oxford by the 1800 census period, three sons and two daughters under 16 years old. These three sons plus Henry appear to be the major contributors to the growth of the Hackett name in Oxford over the next 50 years. In contrast, only one son of Josiah contributed, the other two having migrated on to western N. Y. and beyond, and were gone from Oxford by 1830.

 
The first census of the Hackett clan in Oxford showed that Joseph was “empty-nested,” as in fact he nearly was in the 1790 census in Hillsdale, having apparently only two daughters then remaining in the household. Josiah was somehow missed in the 1790 census in Hillsdale, having arrived there by 1780 according to his pension application. From subsequent records, we calculate that Josiah arrived in Oxford at age 39 years with sons of ages 19, 6, and 2 years, as basically confirmed by his 1800 Oxford census counts (see below). We find no record that he added any sons thereafter. By that same date he also has three daughters all under the age of 16 years, and appears to have added no more thereafter. By 1820 he is also “empty-nested” at age about 62 years. All of these summarized results are addressed below with source citations.
 
Joseph’s purported son, Edward, who shows no evidence of ever residing in Oxford, is briefly covered in a family summary below, but will be treated more fully in another article covering the Hackett-Booth group that settled in Locke, Cayuga Co., N. Y. at about the same time.

Henry H. was born 11 Sep 1838 at prob. Liberty Twp. McKean Co. Penn; hedied after 1913.
Here we list some unplaced Hackett “orphans” found in census records for Oxford, most of who may be descendents of Joseph. In the 1810 census: Edward Hackett, age 45+ (disappears thereafter); and Edward Hackett, 2d, age (26<45). In the 1820 census: Amaziah Hackett, age (26<45), (disappears thereafter); Edward Hackett, age (26<45), apparently the “2d” from 1810, (disappears thereafter); and Major Hackett, age (26<45). In the 1830 census: Sallsbury (or “Sallsthy”?) Hackett, apparently a female, a. (40<50), (disappears thereafter); and Major Hackett, a. (40<50), (disappears thereafter). In the 1840 census: William H. Hackett (a. 20<30), not further traced but may show up in later censuses. In the 1850 census, “Roxy A.”, a female (a. 20), b. N. Y., living in a Ransom household.

 
One final comment: clearly the Hackett branch in Oxford arrived with two other families, into which they either had already married or did so shortly after arriving. Both Lyon Ingraham and Job Ingraham (earlier spelled “Ingram”) first appeared in the 1800 census with the early Hacketts. Thereafter the census almost always listed Job “Ingram” between two Hackett families. In later years, Hackett singles began to show up in Ingraham family households (e. g. in 1850, 71 year old Henry “Sr.” was resident with Charles A. Ingraham, a. 29, and Hiram, a. 17, was resident with Orange (sic) Ingraham, a. 42). These strongly suggest family relationships.

[1]Steve Newton, "Re: [Booth-L] Booth Orphans #1: John-1's Unconnected Souls," e-mail message from Steve Newton (Booth-L@rootsweb.com) to Mac Young, 22 March 2004, Newton first suggested to me (without citing a source) that Joseph was the father of Josiah (of Oxford) and Edward (of Chenango Co.), both formerly of Freetown, Mass., as apparently was Joseph the father; his age is calculated for a 25 year old father on birth of oldest known child (Edward). Hereinafter cited as "Booth-L List: Hackett, Booth".
[2]Joseph Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, http://www.Ancestry.com/, Second Census of U.S. Schedule M32-28, N. Y., Joseph was enumerated as head of household in 1800, clustered with Josiah and Henry on the same page, but is not found there with those two, and other Hacketts, in 1810; it appears he died between before June of 1810. All census sheet references hereafter are from Ancestry.Com unless otherwise indicated.
[3]Joseph Hackett, 2 Aug 1790 Hillsdale census sheet, First Census of U.S. Schedule M637-6, New York,(230); Joseph has counts: [1,0,3,0,0], suggesting a family with two daughters; he is listed on the same image (adjacent pages) as Abel Hackett, a probable son, and three images (5 pages) from a Samuel Hackett, a possible son.
[4]Joseph Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, (770); Joseph has counts of: M [0,0,0,0,1], F [0,0,0,0,1], and O [0,0], a typical empty nest for this elderly couple.
[5]Samuel Hackett, 2 Aug 1790 Hillsdale census sheet, (235); Samuel has a count of: [2,1,6,0,0], suggesting a mature couple, married, say 12 years if all others in household are their children. He is listed three images (5 pages) from a Joseph Hackett, a possible father; we calculate his birth date from a 25-year-old first time father now having seven children.
[6]Lucy Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Hillsdale census sheet (186), Godfrey Library (online), Second Census of U.S. Schedule M32-22, N. Y., Lucy has counts of: M [0,0,2,0,0], F [1,2,1,3,1] and O [0,0]; this apparent widow with eight females (one over age 45) and no mature male (26 or older) is a good candidate for a widowed wife of the Samuel Hackett, enumerated here in 1790. If so, these census data suggest a couple married for about 12 years, and we estimate her birth date for a 20-year-old bride.

[18]Abel Hackett, 1 June 1830 Oxford census sheet, http://www.Ancestry.com/, Fifth Census of U.S. Schedule M19-86, New York,(66); a completely empty nest, one male ["Ail", sic, Abel], a.

[19]Abel Hackett, 2 Aug 1790 Hillsdale census sheet, (229); Abel has counts of [1,1,4]; he is listed on the same image (adjacent page) as his probable father, Joseph.
[20]Abel Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, (772); Abel has count: M [2,1,0,1,0], F [2,0,0,1,0], and O [0,0]; both Abel and his apparent wife are under age 45, and have 5 young children under age 16, four apparently new since the 1790 census. The missing 1790 male child (then under 16 years) is gone here; supporting the belief that the newly appearing Henry is that person, the oldest son of Abel.
[21]Abel Hackett, 6 August 1810 Oxford census sheet, (309); Abel has count: M [0,1,1,0,1], F [0,1,0,0,1], and O [0,0]; this suggests a family that could spawn two new male households by the next census.
[22]Abel Hackett, 7 August 1820 Oxford census sheet, (243), Abel with counts M [1,0,0,1,0,1] and F [1,0,0,1,1] and O [0,2,0,0]; apparently Abel and his wife are both well over 45 years old, and likely have living in the household a son, age (16<26) and wife of son, age (26<45), and two children under age 10 years.
[23]1 June 1830 Oxford census sheet, (66), a completely empty nest, one male ["Ail", sic, Abel], a. (70<80) and one female, the same age category; enumerated on same page as "Major Hacket" and one page from "George Hacket".
[24]Abel Hackett, 1 June 1840 Oxford census sheet, (74); Abel has counts of one male (70<80) and one female (70<80), the same as in 1830; this is very likely in error (should be age 80 and less than 90) not only because he cannot be in the same 10-year age category twice in successive census years, but because Abel is almost certainly older than his brother, Josiah (listed as age 82 in this census).
[25] Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War, Vol. 7, (4), Ancestry.Com online database.
[26]4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, (772); Henry's candidate father, Abel, has counts of: M [2,1,0,1,0], F [2,0,0,1,0], and O [0,0] in this census; both Abel and his apparent wife are under age 45, and have 5 young children under age 16, four apparently new since the 1790 census. The missing 1790 male child (then under 16 years) is gone here, supporting the belief that newly appearing Henry in this Oxford census is that person, the oldest son of Abel (birth date taken from 1850 census for Henry, see below).
[27]Henry Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, (770); Henry shows counts of: M [0,0,1,0,0], F [0,0,1,0,0], and O [0,0]; suggesting a newly wed couple, whether in Oxford or in Hillsdale, we do not know.
[28]George Hackett, 1 June 1830 Oxford census sheet, http://www.Ancestry.com/, Fifth Census of U.S. Schedule M19-86, New York,(67); George in his census appearance has counts of: M [1,2,1,0,0,1,0...], F [1,1,0,0,0,1,0...], and no other entries; he is likely the son of Abel; we calculate his birth date from this census data.
[29]1 June 1840 Oxford census sheet, (74); George has count M [0,0,1,3,0,0,1,0...] and F [0,1,1,1,0,0,1,0...], O [0,0...]; he is listed on the same page as Abel, the second line below him; his probable wife is in the same age category; he appears to have added a daughter but no sons since the previous census.

[32]Town of Dartmouth [Mass.] Records: (n. p.), FHL microfilm 903382; this source (photocopy of the original town record book) states they were married by " Abner Lewis, Elder", a piece of evidence not included in the oft-cited Dartmouth VRs to 1850 (see below, this note).; also, Helen Gurney Thomas, Freetown VRs to 1890, "Marriages"(n. p., "Booth", Mary), she "of Dartmouth" and he (by silence) is of Freetown, according to Thomas, who found this in Freetown records labeled as a "Dartmouth record" and entered as being performed by Elder John Lawrence of East Freetown (sic), in direct conflict with the Dartmouth record itself; we chose to believe the particulars of the Dartmouth record have more validity; also Vol. II - Marriages, Dartmouth VRs-1850: S&R CD Set, (69); she being of Dartmouth and he, of Freetown; this source also cites Bristol Co. Marriages records as giving 20 November for the marriage date, however it well known those records (copied from Town Records) are unreliable.
[33]Steve Newton, "Booth-L List: Hacketts, Booths," e-mail to Mac Young, 22 March 2004; Josiah Hackett Pension, gives date and location of birth (in sworn deposition), plus a date of death (but no location) in the Pension Bureau transmittal form.

Nathaniel Kellog" who is said to live "about 10 miles distant" and had known him "more than 50 years".
[36]Josiah Hackett Pension Application, Josiah Hackett Pension, deposition as part of his pension application.
[37]Ibid.
[38]Josiah Hackett, 4 Aug 1800 Oxford census sheet, (770); counts for Josiah are: M [1,0,1,1,0], F [2,1,0,1,0], and O [0,0]; at age 42, this fits Josiah nicely (26<45) and also Mary Booth, age about 41, is a good fit in the same age group. We note they have been married 23 years and probably have some children out of the household, with a male is about to depart, almost certainly "Josiah, Jr." (see 1810 census).
[39]Josiah Hackett, 6 August 1810 Oxford census sheet, (309); Josiah has counts: M [0,0,0,0,1], F [0,0,0,0,1], O [0,0]; it appears not only did Josiah, Jr. depart, but so did a male who should be (10<20), two females who should be (10<20), and another female who should be (20<26). The later could be explained by a marriage, but three marriages? Possible. It seems unlikely the younger male departed by marriage at that age.
[40]Josiah Hackett [Sr], 7 August 1820, Oxford census sheet, Godfrey Library (online), Heritage Quest Pro, (240); we find Josiah [Sr.] (not indexed) with counts of: M [0,0,0,0,1,0], F [0,0,1,0,1], and O [0,0,1,0]; from his known birth date we see Josiah is misplaced in the age category, while wife, Mary, is correct; they appear to have one daughter, age (16<26), or housekeeper, in the household; Josiah is in "Commerce", and we know him to be a shoemaker from other sources; at his age 62, this is an almost empty nest.
[41]Josiah Hackett, 1 June 1830 Oxford census sheet, (63); Josiah has counts of: M [1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0,1...], F [0,1,1,2,0,1,0,0,0,1...], and [0...]; because Josiah, Jr., is found in Addison, Steuben Co. with his brother, Seth, this suggests, firstly, the head-of-household is "Sr.", present with his wife (both are age 70, less than 80); secondly, we see an apparent widower, age (50<60); thirdly, there is a middle aged couple present (both of age 30, less than 40) who are perhaps responsible for all seven youngsters under the age of 20 years (or at least the five under age 15 years). This seems almost certainly to be Daniel, son of Josiah, Sr., and wife, who appeared first in the 1820 census with 4 children under 10 years, 3 of them girls, making an excellent fit to both these parents and their apparent children.

[45]Josiah Hackett Jr., 6 August 1810 Oxford census sheet, (309); Josiah, Jr. has counts: M [0,1,0,1,0], F [0,0,0,1,0], and O [0,0]; we calculate his birth date range from his almost certain appearance in his father's 1800 census as age (16<26), together with his parents marriage date of November, 1777, concluding he must have been at least 26 on 6 August 1800 but probably was not born earlier than, say September, 1778 (first interval). After examining his 1830 Addison, N. Y. census, showing him to be (40<50), it appears he was born before 2 June 1780, which defines the upper end of the range we use here. Almost certainly, he was born in Freetown.
[46]6 August 1810 Oxford census sheet, (309); the male of age (10<16) in his household can best be explained as a younger brother, perhaps the one of age less than 10 years old in Josiah, Sr.'s 1800 household. We might have concluded this is Josiah, Jr.'s son if there had been a female (16<26) in the Josiah, Sr. household in 1800, suggesting the presence of a second, young family. Absence this, the other way this could still be possible is if the female (10<16) in 1800 is misplaced from the (16<26) age group.
[47]Josiah Hackett [Jr.], 1 June 1830 Addison census, (356); Josiah has count of: M [0,1,1,1,1,0,1,0...], F [1,3,0,0,0,0,1,0...], and no others; the apparent head of household is age (40<50), as is his apparent wife; the belief that this is Josiah Hackett, Jr. of Oxford, Chenango Co., N. Y. (1810 census) is based on three things: first, his age category is reasonably consistent with his age in the 1810 census (he would be about 51); second, his presence here with Seth Hackett of Oxford (1820 census) and their common absence from Oxford (Josiah, Jr. since 1810, Seth since 1820); and thirdly, evidence that they are brothers, sons of Josiah Hackett [Sr.] of Oxford, hence probably migrated together; Addison is about 100 miles west and slightly south from Oxford as the crow flies.
[48]Daniel Hackett, 14 August 1850 Oxford census sheet, (413); taken on 14 August, dwelling #1323, family #1610, head of household Dan[ie]l Hackett, a. 58, b. N. Y., with apparent Wife, Abigail, a. 59, b. N. Y., and several others. Daniel’s birth date is calculated from this census.
[49]Ibid; their marriage date is calculated for a 25 year old groom.
[50]Re: [Hackett-L] Hackett, NY, 1874, online http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/index/HACKETT/1999-04; Gary Hackett cites the Chenango Co., Town of Oxford, listing of DEATHS reported in the 1875 Census, June 1, 1874 - May 31, 1875: "Hacket, Daniel, Apr. 12, 1875, 83, widower, Conn., Kidneys, farmer." [This death record repeats the 1870 U. S. Census obvious error in his place of birth, in conflict with his own head of household reports in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, in which he attested he was born in " N. Y.”; it was impossible for Daniel, born in 1818-19, to be born in Connecticut when his father and mother were living in Oxford, N. Y. continuously from 1798 to her death in 1865. Both errors can likely be attributed to Hiram Hackett, who must have confused his father's with his grandfather's birthplace].
[51]Daniel Hackett, 7 August 1820 Oxford census sheet, (241); Daniel (not indexed) is listed on the same image (adjacent page) with "Major" Hacket, and has counts of: M [1,0,0,0,1,0], F [3,0,0,1,0] and O [0,1,0,0]; with both he and his apparent wife being of age (26<45), with four children under 10 years, this suggests a marriage of about 6-1/2 years, and a head-of-household of age at least 28 (for a 21 year old groom) ranging perhaps to age 32 (for a 25 year old groom).
[52]Daniel Hackett, 1 June 1840 Oxford census sheet, (65); Daniel has counts of: M [0,1,1,2,0,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,0], F [0,2,0,1,1,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0], and under "Pensioners for Revolutionary or Military Services" we find: "Josiah Hackett", age "82". This large, extended family household is easy to explain, taken together with the 1830 census. Apparently sometime prior to June of 1830, Daniel and his family moved in with Josiah [Sr.] after first being enumerated as a separate families in 1820. In 1840, it is clear that Josiah is no longer "head of household", and has turned affairs over to Daniel. This re-enforces the absence (and likely death) of Josiah, Jr. Comparing 1830 to 1840, it's clear that an unidentified widower is still there, also that Josiah, Sr. and Mary are still there, as are Daniel, his wife and their children. Daniel has added 3 more children under age 10, has 5 remaining under age 30, and has apparently lost only 2 of the girls (by marriage or death).
[53]14 August 1850 Oxford census sheet, (413); taken on 14 August, line #38, dwelling #1323, family #1610, head of household Dan[ie]l Hackett, a. 58, farmer, real estate value $2500, b. N. Y., no other entries; apparent wife, Abigail, a. 59, b. N. Y., adult child, Joseph, a. 22, b. N. Y. [named for great-grandfather?], and second head of family (#1611) in same dwelling, Henry, 2d, a. 28, farmer, b. N. Y., and apparent wife, Julia, a. 25, b. N. Y. We find no evidence of a Daniel, Jr. in the Oxford 1850 census (after a thorough browsing) who first appeared in the 1860 census at a. 40 years.
[54]Daniel Hackett, 10 June 1860 Oxford census sheet, (286); dwelling #232, family #238, Daniel Hackett, a. 68, Farmer, $5000 real estate value, $1200 personal estate value, b. N. Y.; enumerated with him are: Abigail, a. 6(9?), b. N. Y., and apparent son, Hiram, a. 35 (sic), Farmer, b. N. Y.; re-appearing in the same dwelling is family #239, "Daniel, Jr.", a. 4(0?), Farmer, b. N. Y., his apparent wife, (Lelinde?), a. 35, b. N. Y., with apparent children (all b. N. Y.), Elizabeth, a. 19, Alice, a. 16, William, a. 13, Charles, a. 8, Hannah, a. 6, and Rosy, a. 3. This dwelling is immediately before that of Josiah’s son, Joseph Hackett.
[55]Daniel Hackett, 14 June 1870 Oxford census sheet, (350); dwelling #66, family #69, Daniel, a. 78, Retired Farmer, [$6000 real estate value is shown under Hiram family], , b. "Conn." [sic; disagrees with previous two censuses and genealogical evidence], no wife [Abigail d. 1865], and citizen of U. S. [We strongly suspect this dwelling and family should be listed for Hiram, with Daniel as a resident with him.].

[59]Daniel Hackett Jr., 10 June 1860 Oxford census sheet, (286); "Daniel, Jr.", a. 4(0?), Farmer, b. N. Y., his apparent wife, (Lelinde?), a. 35, b. N. Y.; the birth of Lelinde and their marriage date are calculated from this census data, including birth of oldest known child.
[60]10 June 1860 Oxford census sheet, (286); line #26, dwelling #232 (owned by Josiah Hackett, a. 68) is family #239, "Daniel, Jr.", a. 4(0?), Farmer, b. N. Y., his apparent wife, (Lelinde?), a. 35, b. N. Y., with apparent children (all b. N. Y.), Elizabeth, a. 19, Alice, a. 16, William, a. 13, Charles, a. 8, Hannah, a. 6, and Rosy, a. 3. Almost certainly, this is a son of Daniel [Sr.], who should have appeared in 1850 but was not found after a thorough browsing of the records. This dwelling is immediately before that of Joseph Hackett, apparent brother of Daniel, Jr.
[61]Daniel Hackett, 14 August 1850 Oxford census sheet; a second head of family (#1611) in same dwelling, Henry, 2d, a. 28, farmer, b. N. Y., and his apparent wife, Julia, a. 25, b. N. Y.; we assign Henry, 2d as candidate son of Daniel and Abigail; knowing this is a married couple (see 1880 census) the date of their marriage is estimated as within one year, based on their ages and the absence of children.
[62]Henry Hackett, 11 June 1880 Oxford, ED 107, SD 9, (301A); dwelling # 182, family #188, head of household, Henry Hackett, a. 58, married, Farmer, b. New York, father b. Mass., mother b. Mass.; Julia A., a. 54, wife, married, Keeping House, b. New York, father b. Conn., mother b. Mass.; Anna L., a. 12, dau., single, at school, attended school in year, b. (self, father, mother) all New York; Roxanna Hall, a. 77, mother-in-law, widowed, at home, disability "fever", b. "Massachusetts", father and mother both b. "Mass." [It appears that Henry and Julia have taken possession of the farm.].
[63]Daniel Hackett, 14 August 1850 Oxford census sheet; this household included an apparent adult son, Joseph, a. 22, b. N. Y. [named for great-grandfather?], and others; Joseph's birth date is calculated from this census data.
[64]Joseph Hackett, 10 June 1860 Oxford census sheet; we calculate the wedding date for oldest known child, taken from this census data.
[65]Joseph Hackett, 10 June 1860 Oxford census sheet, (286); dwelling #233, family #240, "Joseph", a. 32, Farmer, b. N. Y., his apparent wife, Lisa, a. 25, b. N. Y., with apparent children (all b. N. Y.), Charles, a. 6, George, a. 4, and Elizabeth, a. 2. This is a probable son of Daniel [Sr.], also found in Daniel’s household in the 1850 census. His dwelling is immediately before after that of Daniel, [Sr.] and before that of Lyman Hackett, a. 68.
[66]Orange Ingraham, 6 August 1850 Oxford census sheet, (391); Orange (sic) Ingraham, head of household, a. 42, Farmer, b. N. Y., with apparent wife, Mercy, a. 32, b. N. Y., and their apparent children (all b. N. Y.), Rebecca, a. 14, schooled, Helen M., a. 13, schooled, Charlotte, a. 9, schooled, Eliza, a. 6, schooled, and John H. 2d, a. 3; and also resident is Hiram Hackett, a. 17, Farmer, b. N. Y., schooled within the year. [Speculation: Hiram is living with his married sister, a daughter of Daniel Hackett.]
[67]Hiram Hackett, 14 June 1870 Oxford census sheet, (350); dwelling #66, family #68, Hiram, a. 35, Farmer, $6000 real estate value, b. N. York, with apparent wife, Lusia, a. 21, "house keeper", b, N. York, and three children (all b. N. Y., all apparently his), Fanny, a. 8, attends school, Daniel, a. 5, attends school, and Freddy, a. 1, at home. [Speculation: this situation suggests that Hiram, unmarried and living at home with Daniel in 1860, married very soon thereafter, had three children, and his wife died bearing the one year old. Henry quickly married a 21 year old, who is obviously too young to be mother of the 8 and 5 year olds, and likely is not the mother of the one year old either. Meanwhile, Daniel has clearly turned the farm over to Hiram.].
[68]Ibid; dwelling #66, family #68, Hiram Hackett, a. 35 [sic; same age entered in 1860, which looked wrong there, when he was about 27; he's now about 37], Farmer, $6000 real estate value [he had no real estate in 1860, Daniel must have turned the farm over to him], $360 personal estate, b. N. York, U.S. citizen; apparent wife, Lusia, a. 21, "house keeper", b, N. York, U.S. citizen, with three apparent children (all b. N. Y.), Fanny, a. 8, attends school, Daniel, a. 5, attends school, and Freddy, a. 1, at home. [This census sheet is loaded with errors. It shows no dwelling family numbers for Hiram Hackett, despite his significant real estate value; the numbers used above are continuations from the previous page, for a head-of-household, George Lanton, a. 29, Farmer, with $9000 real estate value, and no apparent connection to Hiram's household; meanwhile, the next household entry after Hiram is Daniel, who has dwelling and family numbers for just him alone, but with no real estate or personal estate values -- impossible!].
[69]Seth Hackett, 7 August 1820 Oxford census sheet, (235); Seth has counts of: M [2,0,0,1,0,0], F [0,0,0,1,0], and O [0,0,0,1]; this suggests a young couple married within the past five years. Because Seth Booth is Josiah's brother-in-law (he married Mary Booth, Seth's sister) we strongly suspect this is a son of Josiah, and assign him as Josiah's candidate son. His birth date is calculated from the age of 26 (on Aug 8) at the earliest date and a marriage of 4-1/2 years (2 children under 10) at a marriage age of 21, for the latest date, which together pegs his birth range at 1794-1798, an estimate that supports the Eggler date with original source, primary information (see next note below).; David Eggler, online http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=deggler1849&id=I5941, downloaded 7 April 2004, taken from: "Descendant Register, Generation 1, Seth Hackett", partially source documented, citing derivative, secondary information only.

[73]Seth Hackett, 1 June 1830 Addison census sheet, (360); Seth's household shows counts of: M [1,1,1,0,0,1,0...], F [0,2,0,0,0,1,0...], and no other entries; this couple has added one boy and two girls since the 1820 census in Oxford. This is a perfect fit for the births of Charles, Lousia, and Permelia.
[74]Seth Hackett, 1 June 1840 Liberty, Penn. census sheet, (88); Seth has counts of: M [1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0...]; F [1,2,1,1,0,0,1,0...], and no other entries; knowing the birth dates of all nine children, these counts match up with all of the five girls, and three of the four boys. In the male age group (20<30) should be Moses (age 21) and Charles (age 20). The missing one is Moses "K.”, married by about the time of this census (birth of child, 1820-21), and found living in Port Allegany, Keating Twp., McKean Co., in the 1860 U. S. census, with eight children ranging from 18 years down to 2 years, including what appears to be ten-year-old twins.
[75]Seth Hackett, 24 August 1850 Liberty Twp, Penn. census sheet, (53); line #40, dwelling #95, family #805, head of household is Seth Hackett, a. 53, farmer, $1200 real estate value, b. N. Y., with apparent wife, Electa, a. 51, b. N. Y., and apparent children (all "Hackett", b. N. Y.), Margaret, a. 19, Mary, a. 17, Ann, a. 14 and schooled within year, and Henry, a. 11, also schooled within the year.
[76]David Eggler, 7 April 2004, taken from: "Descendant Register, Generation 1, Seth Hackett"; also, from Seth Hackett’s 7 August 1820 Oxford census sheet (235), that original source of primary information supports the birth of two boys within the first four years of marriage.
[77]David Eggler, 7 April 2004, taken from: "Descendant Register, Generation 1, Seth Hackett", gives no marriage date, which we calculate from birth of child, the location being based on the bride's birth and death location; the bride is a daughter of Job and Nancy (Woodruff) Gifford.
[78]David Eggler, 7 April 2004, taken from: "Descendant Register, Generation 1, Seth Hackett"; no explanation is given for the apparent return to Oxford, Chenango Co., for the birth of Permelia after moving from Oxford to an unspecified location in Chemung Co. where Lousia was said to have been born. Chemung Co. is about half way between Oxford and Addison, which are about 100 miles apart. Lacking documentation, we mark this 100 mile round trip as questionable.
[79]David Eggler, 7 April 2004, taken from: "Descendant Register, Generation 1, Seth Hackett"; the 1830 federal census for Addison, Steuben Co., N. Y. showing one new male, suggests he was born in Addison.
