My great grandfather John Hacket (Hackett) died in 1898 and I can't find any information on him at all. I'm assuming that he passed away in Tampico as my great grandmother Sarah Richmond Hacket(Hackett)maintained a home there and raised their children in Tampico. Any information you may have would be helpful - thanks He is shown on the 1880 census as residing in Fairfield.

Did you do a site-search here? We have a John Hacket and Sarah & Wm. Hackett buried in our Tampico Memorial Cemetery.
Also showing J. Hackett as Fairfield land owner:
FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP LAND OWNERS as compiled by Les Niemi on this site.

When I go to the historical society next, I will look up the obits for you.

I haven't had a chance to post this in the obits or link to the cemetery index, but here is Sarah's obit:

March 14, 1935
Mrs. John Noon, Mrs. Sarah Hackett and Tony Harmsen Taken By Death

(obit of Marie Noon)
(Death notice of Tony Harmsen)

Funeral services for Mrs. Sarah Hackett who passed away at her home at 9:45 Wednesday morning will be held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 at the house and 2:00 at the Christian church. Mrs. Hackett had been in poor health for some time but had been seriously ill only a short time.'

Sarah Ann Richmond, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Richmond, was born at Maryville, Mo., on Oct. 11, 1860. At the age of 3 weeks she came with her parents to Sheffield where they settled on a farm in Concord township, Bureau county, Illinois, where she grew to womanhood.

On January 23, 1878 she was united in marriage to John Hackett. To this union was born six girls, Mrs. Dollie Hansen of Turtle Lake, Wis.; Mrs. Laura Fox of Turtle Lake, Wis.; Mrs. Fannie Karn of Tampico, Ill.; Mrs. Bess Hammerle of Walnut, Ill., and Blanche Irene who died at the age of three months. Besides her own daughters she took into her home a niece, Mrs. Stella Dingman Williams of Dixon, Ill., who was then one year old and who was cared for as one of her own.

After her marriage she moved to a farm near Tampico where she lived until three years ago when she ***** in town. Her husband preceded her in death, March 5, 1898. She is survived by her daughters; one step-daughter, Mrs. Eva Richmond of Moline, Ill.; 19 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; two brothers, John Richmond of Wyanet and Aaron of Wisconsin besides many other relatives and a host of friends.

I'll see if I can find her husband's obit. Hope this helps or others can add to it.

Well, we have just about every issue EXCEPT March 12 that would have the obit of John Hackett! (It wasn't in the March 5 edition) But, if he died in Bureau Co, then the BCGS may have a copy of his obit indexed.

Your John Hacket (Hackett) was a brother to my Elizabeth Hacket. Both are children of Ziba Hacket and his wife, Elizabeth Myers. Ziba and family moved from Hunterdon Co.,NJ to Bureau Co., IL sometime around 1855 (as that is when he sold his land in NJ and he is listed in the 1860 IL census). I think I have a picture of John and Sarah Hacket and their 6 daughters.
