Notes:  Anna Ethel Ichter was born 27 Oct 1890 in Ashley, Luzerne, Pennsylvania.  She was the oldest child of Jown W. Ichter and Janet E. Dunlop.  Her brother John was born in 1892, and brother George in 1897.  One child in the family had died young.
In the 1900 U.S. census, the family was living at 72 Mary Street in Ashley.  Also living with the family was her maternal grandmother, Anna Dunlop.  Her father was a locomotive engineer.

By the 1910 U.S. census, the household included two more brothers - Lester, born about 1904, and Donald, born about 1907.  Her brother John was a laborer in a boiler shop, and brother George was a newspaper boy.  Her grandmother Anna was still living with the family.  Her younger sister Jean was born in 1912.

In the meantime, Anna had gone to nursing school, and in 1911, the Ashley Directory lists Anna as a nurse.  By 1917, her father had died, and Anna had become the supervisor of nurses at the Wilkes-Barre City Hospital.

Anna married David Vernon McNaught on 26 Jun 1918 in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.  When, where, and how they met is a mystery.  In the 1921 Canada census, they were living in an apartment at 324 6th Avenue, in Saskatoon (City), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  David was a manager in real estate, with a yearly income of £2400.

Anna and David moved to Burlington, Vermont in 1924, which is David's immigration date to the United States.  They lived in several homes until about 1935, when they moved to 12 Ledgemere Street, which became their long time residence.

At some point in time David began going by the name D. Vernon McNaught.  He was a New York Life Insurance agent.  Anna, who was a nurse, became the executive secretary for the American Red Cross.  The couple had no children.

In 1939, Anna's mother, Janet Dunlap Ichter, was visiting when she passed away.  About 1948, Jean E. Ichter, Anna's sister, came to live with them.  Jean was a nurse, and became a college professor at Vermont University.  In 1952, Jean moved to Bartlett Bay Road, South Burlington.  Where David and Anna were living between 1952 and 1958 is unknown.

In 1958, Anna and David moved in with Jean on Bartlett Bay Road, South Burlington.  Anna was operated on for lung cancer in Nov 1964.  She died in Jean's home on 5 Apr 1965 of "Carcinoma to the right lung with Metastasses to bones, skin and Lymph-nodes".  She is buried in the Maple Hill Cemetery in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, just a short way from her old family home.
