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)


Sympathy Saturday – Sarah Doughty

July 16th, 2011 |

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.  🙂
