Daughter of Simeon (Sim) and Eda Hayes Sackett.

It appears that there was a earlier daughter born whose name was "Betsey"; it is quite possible that this Betsy was named in her memory.

It isn't clear if the original given name was "Betsey" or "Betsy" - it would be easy for newspapers to use one or the other name in error. Will use the "Betsy" found on the inscription in the burial plot, but with the caution that the inscription was mis-engraved. Any clarification would be appreciated.

No Fairfield area newspaper obituary found for Betsy in the microfilm records on file at the Fairfield Public Library. It is possible that one was published, but overlooked, so it isn't 100% certain that a Fairfield area obituary wasn't published.
