J.S. (John) CANAVAN / CANIVAN / CANOVAN, etc. date of death?

Surnames: CANAVAN, SANFORD, SCRAMLING
After his marriage in 1817 to Naomi (Scramling) Sanford, in Mendon, OntarioCo NY., by the 1840 Census they were in Ypsilanti Twp.,WashtenawCo. MI. In that census, John's age was stated as "50-59" (possible error) while Naomi's age was "40-49". They had three living children - two b. in NY and one in MI. I have not found them in an 1850 census.

I cannot find a source for the date of death for John OR Naomi in WashtenawCo. and would appreciate suggestions on finding those. I am not familiar with where to ask this question - or where to find the answer! I can find no answers Online.
Thanks for your suggestions, Patricia

I’m not related to any member of this family.



You wrote - "They had three living children - two b. in NY and one in MI. I have not found them in an 1850 census."
Wha makes you sure these children were born in NY & MI since the 1850 census is the 1st census to list/show birthplaces???


NOTE -
Michigan did not require “by law” birth, marriage & death registrations until 1867.
