Anna Linn Ramm, 1876-1895
Miss Anna Linn Ramm was born on May 18, 1876 to Mr. and Mrs. William Oswald Ramm, who were residents of Sandusky, Ohio in the 1890's. Anna worked as a servant for the family of Dr. C.H. Mills of Toledo, Ohio. On the evening of December 11, 1895, Anna Linn Ramm cried out in pain. Dr. Mills' mother in law, as well as a druggist, were at the Mills home when Anna became ill. The druggist rushed to the pharmacist for some medication, but by the time he arrived back at the Dr. Mills' residence, Anna had died. The coroner stated that the cause of death of Anna Linn Ramm was heart failure. Anna's parents took the Lake Shore Railroad to Toledo, so they could accompany the remains of their daughter home to Sandusky. Anna Linn Ramm was buried in Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. She was aged 19 years, 6 months, and 24 days at the time of her untimely death.
