My 2nd great grandfather (born 1848) was Anselme Ratté, which was his birth name in Quebec. When he immigrated to Alpena Michigan in 1879, he Americanized his name to Samuel Ratté. He married Sarah Picard in Quebec in 1864. I have found information about his children's births from records of St Anne's Catholic Church in Alpena, but I can't find a death date for him, or where he might be buried. As far as I can tell by records, he died sometime before 1905 in the Alpena area. Sometime before 1920, his family packed up and moved to WA state. Sarah survived him and died in 1930 in Grays Harbor, WA state. If anyone has any information on his death and place of burial in Alpena MI area, I would appreciate it.
