Young Daniel Lapan died at 2 months of age from malnutrition and improper food.  I know it sounds like negligence, but this was actually common as today it is called “Failure to Thrive.”  I imagine his parents, Anthony Lapan & Maria Ross, were horrified by his death as any parents would be.  Daniel was the last child of the 12 born.  He rests in St. Anne’s Catholic Cemetery in Linwood, Bay, Michigan.  A simple wooden cross with no dates marks his resting place.

Isaac Booth & Josephine Tye Booth rest in  Memorial Park Cemetery in Rogers City, Presque Isle, Michigan.  (They are Michael’s 2nd great-grandparents.)
