OBITUARY ~ ALFRED M. SACKETT
July 17, 1847 ~ December 18, 1905

Alfred M. Sackett died at his home in Mt. Ayr about noon, Monday, December 18, 1905. Because of failing health he had but recently moved to town from his farm in Lotts Creek township. He had just got fairly settled in his new home. He had been seriously ill but for a short time. He had been declining in his general health for some time and it was presumed that diabetes was the trouble.

Mr. Sackett was born July 17, 1847, and had therefore reached the age of 58 years, 5 months. He was born in Illinois and when yet a young lad moved with his parents to Iowa.

The family first settled in Henry County and lived there until the close of the Civil War. He moved to Ringgold county over twenty years ago and purchased the farm where he lived for many years in Lotts Creek township.

He was married to Louisa Dear in Henry county and to this union seven children were born, four of whom are now living: Mrs. George Kindblade (Stella), Lester and Alfred of this county, and Mrs. Charles Jagger (Mae) of Chariton.

Mr. Sackett was a member of the M.E. church and was associated with the Fry Chapel organization. Years ago he had much to do with the organization of this society and the building of the church. He had been an important member of the community in which he lived.

The funeral services were held at the M.E. church of this city at 2 PM yesterday and were in charge of the IOOF lodge of which he was a member. The sermon was preached by Rev. T. J. Ream and interment was at Rose Hill Cemetery.
