I found Albert and Lilly Collier in the
1920 Census; West Township, McLean County, Illinois
SD No. 9; ED No. 150; Sheet No. 2B; 6 January, 1900
39/39

Collier, Emma, Daughter, W, F, 5, S, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana, None
Collier, Alberta, Daughter, W, F, 3 8/12, S, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana,

Using the birthplaces for Albert and Lilly, and their children, and have
traced Albert Collier back through the 1900 and 1880 censuses:
1900 Census; Miller Township, Dearborn County, Indiana
SD No. 4; ED No. 47, Sheet No. 8B; 21 & 22 June, 1900
165/165

John COLLIER, Self, M, Male, W, 32, IN, Farmer, PA, IN
Elizabeth R. COLLIER, Wife, M, Female, W, 26, OH, Keeping House, ---, ---

Albert J. COLLIER, Son, S, Male, W, 2, IN, , IN, IN
Betsy COLLIER, Dau, S, Female, W, 1M, IN, , IN, IN

Now comes the problem of using the resouces I have available and tracing
Lillie/Lilly Sackett back through the years. She was born 1885 in Indiana.
The only census listing I can find which would seem to match is
1900 Census; Logan Township, Dearborn County, Indiana
SD No. 4; ED No. 44; Sheet No. 1A; 1 June, 1900
3/3
Sackett, William M., Head, W, M, Oct. 1852, 47, M, 20, Na, U.S., U.S., Day
Laboer
Sackett, Emma, Wife, W, F, May 1854, 45, M, 20, 5-5, Ohio, Indiana, ---, ---
Sackett, Delancy, Son, W, M, Nov. 1883, 16, S, Indiana, Indiana, Indiana,
Day Loborer
Sackett, Sara L., Daughter, W, F, Apr. 1885, 15, S, Indiana, Indiana,
Indiana, ---
Sackett, Theadore, Son, W, M, Feb. 1887, 13, S, Indiana, Indiana,
Indiana, ---
Sackett, Lawrence, Son, W, M, Dec. 1889, 10, Indiana, Indiana, Indiana, ---

The location is near the Collier family in Dearborn Co., IN. The daughter,
Sara L. b. Apr 1885 matches the 1885 birthdate for Lillie Sackett in the
cemetery listing. The birth year of William M. Sackett and the name of the
son, Delancy, offers a clue to a connection with a family in the Sackett
database. I23606-Martin Sacket:
1870 Census; Spencer Township, Jennings County, Indiana
Page No. 42; 19 August, 1870; Post Office: Six Mile
310/314
Sacket, Martin, 62, W, M, Cooper, New York
Sacket, Sarah, 55, F, W, Keeping House, Indiana
Page No. 44
Sacket, William, 17, M, W, Day Laborer, Indiana
Sacket, Catherine, 14, F, W, At home, Indiana
------
Year: 1860; State: Indiana; County: Dearborn; Township: Logan
M653_252, Page 590
July 7, 1860
Line 1, 439, 438
Martin Sacket, 52, M, Cooper, 200, New York
Sarah Ann Sacket, 44, F, Ohio
Dlancy Sacket, 23, M, Day Laborer, Indiana
Mary Sacket, 20, F, Indiana
Jane Sacket, 14, F, Indiana
Ann Sacket, 13, F, Indiana
Lydia Sacket, 11, F, Indiana
William Sacket, 7, M, Indiana
Catherine Sacket, 4, F, Indiana

I have Martin Sacket listed as a son of Enoch Sackett, son of Reuben Sackett
of the Vermont Sacketts.

Now, for the question; does anyone have resources available which would
show, whether or not, that Sara L. Sackett and Lilly/Lillie Sackett Collier
are the same person?

Regards,
Thurmon
