Weygant's "The Sacketts of America" pages 158-159 has:
655. Benjamin Sacket, 1762-1844, of Warren, Litchfield County, Conn., son of (203) Capt. Justus Sacket , was married Nov. 22, 1782, to Betsey Eldred, who died Mar. 9, 1819. On Oct. 5, 1819 he was married to his second wife Mary Gaylord, who died in 1856. He was a soldier in war of the Revolution, serving in Capt. David Olmstead.s Company, of Col. Enas' Regiment. His name appears on pension rolls of 1832 and 1840 as a resident of Warren, Conn. [NOTE: On this page, I have links to headstone pictures for Benjamin and Betsey which you can use if you wish. The pictures were taken by Fred Sackett, the owner of the sackettheadstones site.]
