Alexander T. Sackett, son of Dr. David Filer Sackett and Martha Milliken, was born 1820 in Wayne Co., IN. He was married 20 Feb 1845 in Muncie, IN. to Cornelia Clark Gilbert. Unfortunately, we know more about his service in the Civil War and his death than we do about the rest of his life.

"3962. Alexander Sackett, 1820-1864, son of (1535) Dr., David F. and Martha Milliken Sackett, was married Feb. 20, 1845, to Cornelia Clark Gilbert, daughter of William Gilbert and his wife Anna Delamater. Mr. Sackett was a Union veteran of the Cival War. He enlisted in 8th Iowa Cavalry, which was attached to the 15th Army Corps. After participating with credit in several engagements he was captured by the Confederates in McCook's raid at Newman, Georgia and suffered confinement in several prisons. At length, in 1864, he was exchanged, and broken in health started north on the steamer General Lyon, which was lost with all on board between Fortress Monroe and Wilmington. In 1869 his widow married Hampton Olney, who died in 1883. In 1905 she was residing with her son, James A. Sackett, on a farm they own jointly near Dudley, Ill."
[Descendants of Alexander state that Dudley is in Wapello Co., IA and not in IL.
