Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 770, Franklin Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"ANDREW S. HACKETT was born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland December 22, 1814, and is one of the eleven children born to TILMAN and CATHERINE (WALKER) HACKETT, natives respectively of Maryland and Delaware. TILMAN HACKETT was a soldier in the War of 1812. He was married in Delaware, where he farmed for eight years. Returning to Maryland, he farmed until the summer of 1836, when he brought his family to this county, then a part of White. He pre-empted 160 acres in what is now Monroe Township, but did not receive his patent until 1841. He was the fourth settler within the present limits of Pulaski County, and here died in 1847. ANDREW S. HACKETT, until twenty-five years of age, remained with his father, after which, for several years, he farmed on shares. In 1837, he went to Kansas, but returned the next year, and bought a farm in Monroe Township. This he sold in 1872, and bought a half-interest in a farm in the north part of this township. In 1881, he sold this interest and bought the place on which he now lives. Mr. HACKETT was first married to REBECCA PEARSON, a native of Ohio, who bore him seven children - none now living. MRS. HACKETT died in 1846, a member of the Christian Church. In 1861, he married MRS. MARY A. (CARR) BARKER, a native of Virginia, who bore him two children, and died in 1869. She, also, was a member of the Christian Church. In April, 1873, he married MRS. MARTHA A. (DOAN) HALL, and this lady is also a member of the Christian Church."
