George D. Hackett.

George D. Hackett passed away at his late home in Windsor, Wednesday, March 1, after a short illness. February 18 he was stricken with a shock and the following Monday with the second, from which he steadily failed until the end.

He was born in Strafford, Vt., January 9, 1843, a son of Moses and Mary Hackett, with whom he lived until the fall of 1861, when he enlisted in the War of the Rebellion, serving with the 3rd Vermont Battery Light Artillery in several battles.

March 9, 1867, he married Ella C. Persons, daughter of Barnard and Amanda Persons of Stockbridge.

The greater part of his life he spent as a farmer in Stockbridge, Sherburne and Weathersfield.

In 1909 he moved to Windsor, living there until his death.

Mr. Hackett was well known and enjoyed a host of friends. Besides a wife, he leaves a daughter, two sons and three sisters to mourn his loss. If he had lived until January 9 he would have observed his 55th wedding anniversary.
