Thank you so much! I tried looking into the name that you gave and find it weird that I can't find the year he passed away. In fact, I can't find any thing other than the information your provided.
I know you're going to think I'm crazy but really weird unexplainable things started happening after I brought the book home. For instance, I placed the book in a new zip lock baggie, to keep it sealed and hopefully preserved, and on two different occassions, I walked into my "home office" to find the baggie lying on the floor and the book sitting on the shelf. I live by myself so its not like someone else in the house could have done this. I have many other copies of old books which I've collected over the years and I've never experienced anything of the sort, which is why I felt a need to look into the history of Mr. Sackett. I don't believe in supernatural, nor am I supersticious, however it's still creepy. I'm going to visit my parents over the weekend and I'm taking the book there for my mom to hold. I want to see if she mentions anything (I haven't told them what I've experienced) while it's in her possession, or if maybe I'm just going insane at 25 yrs old! LOL.
