Who was Sipe Sackett?

Thurmon King writes:
"The post about the picture of an unidentified person reminded me of a picture I received a while back. The picture is of a Sipe Sackett taken 3 December 1911 at the Ore Hill Mine near Warren, Grafton Co., New Hampshire.
I think that Sipe was a nickname and trying to guess at his age, I haven't come up with who this guy is."
Please leave a comment if you think you can identify this mystery Sackett.
