"Mrs. Mary Carre Ozanne, with one exception the oldest resident of the Town of Somers, died of acute bronchitis Thursday, October 11, 1906, aged 87 years, 8 months, and 23 days.
She had been failing for some time and her demise would have occurred in a short time from infirmities due to old age, if the illness of which she died had not hastened her departure.
Mrs. Ozanne was born in the Island of Guernsey, January 18, 1819 and was united in marriage to James Ozanne in May 1847. In June 1850 they sailed for America, landing in Racine and moving immediately to the farm in Somers, already purchased, and upon which they spent the remainder of their lives. Mr. Ozanne having departed this life December 11, 1872.
Four children were born to them, all of whom survive: E.G. Ozanne, Emma Ozanne and Mrs. Helena Hitler of Somers and A.Z. Ozanne of Tempe, Arizona, also six grandchildren, two great grandchildren and one brother, Daniel Carre of Beatrice, Nebraska.

"Willie, the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Carre, died this morning at 7:30 at their home, 1311 N. Chatham Street, Racine, of scarlet fever after a brief illness, aged 3 years, 3 months, and 19 days. Two other children are sick with the same disease. Mr. and Mrs. Carre have the sincere sympathy of the entire community in their sad affliction for it would seem that they were bearing more than their share of trials. Mr. Carre has been suffering with rheumatism for nearly a year, and only recently was able to be about. His faithful wife from long attendance on him was afflicted in like manner and was continued to her bed for many weeks and neither of them have the strength necessary to properly care for their sick children. The case is certainly worthy the attention of such outside assistance as sympathizing friends may be in a position to render."
