RE: Agnes Vining
Hi, I read your message. Yes, does seem unusual but I suspect she was buried as a Vining because that's the marriage that produced the children (note the markers labeled mother and father). It's also possible that was simply her wish or the wish of her children and that it was agreeable to her 2nd husband, Laumeister.

I only found the marriage to Laumeister because I was searching for the son, Orrin. One of the items that came up (he was a prominent Seattle attorney so there were over 100 items for him on GenealogyBank) was his mother's (Agnes) brief obit (Seattle Daily Times 16 June 1930, p 4) in which she is named "Mrs Agnes E Laumeister, former Seattle resident", provides date & location of her death, and notes at the end "Surviving are her husband, Charles E. Laumeister of Dawson, and a daughter and son by a former marriage, June and Orrin Vining, of Seattle".

I have run into this same situation before where the surviving spouse remarries but is buried with the spouse with whom he/she had the first/longest marriage and (usually) produced children. Her Laumeister husband is buried up in Dawson where he lived most of his life.

I think the above clearly shows her 2 marriages and burial with the Vining name was decided back in 1930 if not before. We may think she would have been buried as a Laumeister but of course we weren't part of their lives to know why she was buried as a Vining and with her former husband. Recall, too, her 1 year old daughter was already buried at this cemetery. Possible he (Vining) bought multiple plots for the family at that time (1905) and Mr. Laumesiter understood her wanting to be buried with that infant daughter.

I hope you will link Agnes to both husbands since her obit clearly documents her 2nd marriage. And yes, Agnes did divorce Vining.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and hopefully being open to this additional information to demonstrate possible reasons for her burial as a Vining.

RE: You're welcome, but
Really long story..

RE: HUTTON in Seattle question
Solomon Hutton had 2 children. One is John Clinton Hutton who is, I believe, still living in Seattle and is about 90 years old. Solomon's daughter's name was Mary Ann. I do not think she was ever called Ann or Anna. Being that she was married if this was a tombstone with the surname of Hutton it would not be hers. I do not know her married name.

RE: Grave photo of Gordons in Seattle

We generally go up twice a year to functions that are held at the Chapel. This is a family photo that was posted, but there was nothing that would have prevented me from taking a picture of every space. I would call and see what hours they are normally open.

Hi John, I found the 1870 US Census on Family Search and it shows U.S.A., age 1, living with Peter and Hattie Panchot in Hastings, Dakota, MN. Monica

Hattie Panchot
Hi John, That sounds like a reasonable plan. I like to see them connected in the hope that someone may come forth with information to validate the data. Also, it helps other genealogists with their own research. Thanks, Monica

Hattie Panchot
John, My Hattie is Harriet (Hattie) Melissa Taplin-Panchot. She was born 1849. If she was married at age 18 in 1867, she would have been about 19 when U.S.A. Panchot was born. Census records show he was born in 1868/9. It could be the headstone is incorrect. If you need more information, let me know. Thanks, Monica

I meant that he was the son of "Mr James Hatfield of Riverdale, Yarmouth".

RE: Stanley Hatfield
The dates fit. Also his father is recorded as being the "son of Mr James Hatfield of Riverdale, Yarmouth"[]. See also this link[] As for his age, those were different times. Half of his crew was under 25.
