Isaac Ross died of old age on September 1, 1902 at 80 years of age in Kawkawlin, Bay County, Michigan. It is unclear exactly when he was born as different documentations states different dates. We do that he was born in England, and his father is John Ross. Thought the family is a bit challenging to research as Ross is a very common name, Isaac lived his life as a farmer enjoying his wife Margaret and their 12 children first in Canada and later in Michigan. (3rd great-grandfather)

Sarah Ann Smith Doughty (yes the name is spelled wrong on the death certificate) died July 28, 1906 of apoplexy at 71 years of age in Alpena, Michigan. Apoplexy is a stroke. Sarah died a widow in the county house, which I have not yet researched but am going to guess is the poor house. Sarah rests in Evergreen Cemetery in Alpena. (3rd great-grandmother)
