Mr. Hackett was a soldier of the Civil war,having been a member of Co. D, 12th Regt., and went from Tunbridge.

He was a loyal member of the G.A.R., and had been more than once commander of Orville Bixby post, G.A.R. In 1904 he built a mill for finishing lumber and had a flourishing business which he sold in 1910 to his son, ill health having made it impossible for him to continue it himself.
