New on sackettfamily.info

The Sackett Family Association website has been updated with the following:
Featured Sackett
  • Jacob Edwin Sackett (c1850–1898), flamboyant impresario who sought his fortune by entertaining the masses with everything from freak shows to opera. The "J E Sackett", found in numerous self-publicizing stories in Minneapolis newspapers and in the bizarre marriage announcement in New Zealand (No cards. No cake. Nobody's business.), is here identified as a son of Orsemus Sackett (1826–1896), the eccentric inventor and newspaper vendor of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
See Change Log for all updates to the website.

  1. Further info on Leonard HOGBIN who is on your site, surveyor to Stepney MBC.
    He designed 4 houses in Staples Rd Loughton, now buildings of townscape merit (nos 39-45, "the four sisters") in the Staples Road Conservation area. The application is dated May 1905 and I have a copy of the building plan. LW Hogbin was resident at Preston Rd Leytonstone as per your account of him.
