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)

 

Clara Doughty & Adelbert Knight married on July 31, 1893 in Killmaster, Alcona, Michigan.  They were married by Justice John H. Killmaster.  Clara’s older sister, Hannah also got married the same day to a much older Caleb White.  (clicking on the photo makes it larger.)

Sarah Achenbach Doughty (check out how the name is spelled on the death certificate!) died July 28, 1906 in Alpena,  Michigan.  She was a widow, her husband having died in 1893.

She is buried in Evergreen Cemetery… hopefully next to her husband.  I say hopefully because I still have my fingers crossed that some kind soul will look for her grave and take a photo of her stone and those surrounding it.  :-)
