History of John Sackett Chapter
The John Sackett Chapter, NSDAR is based in Redford, Michigan. The chapter was organized November 8, 1941 at Botsford Inn, Farmington Township. There were eighteen organizing members present, ten of whom were descendants of the man whose name the chapter bears.
The name, John Sackett, was considered quite appropriate for this chapter in view of the fact that in Redford, the Sacketts were among the first settlers and played an important part in the development of the town.
John Sackett was a private in the Revolutionary War and was credited with service in regiments commanded by Colonels Field and Ludington. Colonel Field commanded the Third Dutchess County Militia in New York State.
Membership is open to any woman who is at least eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, blood line, descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American Independence. This service may be through Military Service, Civil Service, Patriotic Service or as a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. The applicant must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death.
