Sympathy Saturday – Sarah Smith Doughty

September 10th, 2011 |

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)
