Re: Hildebrand, Lau and Pakes surnames possibly connected
Hello Karin,

I had noticed that you had posted a photo of Anna Mae Cihacek Baker on Memorial# 36255128. I was attempting to find more pieces of information on the surname of Pakes as someone was requesting that I add information to memorials of individuals in a cemetery I had records for.

Do you know if or how the Pakes may be related to the Lau's and Hildebrand's? I am seeing the surnames of Lau and Hildebrand on Ancestry as well when I am searching for information on individuals of the Pakes Family.

Thank you for any possible information.

Ira A. Doty
Ira A. Doty was buried at Fort Sherman Cemetery in Coeur d'Alene. When Fort Sherman was abandoned in 1901, remains were reinterred at Fort George Wright Cemetery; however, no record for Ira has been located.
Do you know where this info. about his remains being moved to Ft. Wright came from?
My step sister stopped and talked to the care taker at Ft. George Wright, he showed her where he thought the remains were buried, but could not be positive. He mentioned that many have come looking to find his grave site too. With DNA, it is possible to I.D. remains. It's time to have his grave I.D. and a grave stone to commemorate his life and service. How to get this done, I have no idea, even harder for me, because i now live in the S.E of the U.S. T/Y Michael Carroll

I see you added many wonderful photos of him to his memorial. Today I added his headstone photo.
Best wishes,

Ira A. Doty
My sister was at Ft, Wright, Spokane, Wash. today looking for the grave of (Pvt.) Ira A. Doty, husband of Zulina Root Doty. He was buried at Ft. Sherman and was re interred at Ft, Wright, when they closed it. They lost the paperwork and are not sure where he's buried. The keeper from the Airforce base was there and he took her to where he thought Ira was buried, no Marker for him. F.A.G. has him buried there. I would like to at least see them placing a marker in a area where there is no grave to commemorate his service in the Civil War. Ira was my 3rd Grandfather. Thanks for the work, Michael Carroll

Doty, Ira
Hi Karin, I will see what I can locate. I appreciate your writing me--especially because I've never known that bit of Spokane history.
So, are you from the area? Somewhere, further East?
Please be patient as it may take me a while to contact the correct person. Sue

Agnes Laumeister Info

Hi Karin,

Thank you for the message! I appreciate hearing my efforts to link family members helped someone else who is researching their family. I've been researching a few lines of my ancestry very broadly and the Vining's are indeed a distant connection to my Sloan ancestry. When I find spouses, parents, or children that are not linked on Find A Grave I try to do enuf research to link them. I'd say I've been successful about 2/3 of the time. Finding the obit that linked Agnes to both husbands thru her children's Vining surname was a "dream" type of find and that's why I wrote the detailed note to John Speer when he questioned me about Agnes' surname. Glad to help and appreciate you taking the time to let me know I did.

John Speer
Agnes Vining
You're in luck! Please read the message on my page from Vicki Edwards a few down from yours. I don't usually question submissions, but was curious as Agnes was buried as Vining instead of her then-husband's (presumably her legal) name.

RE: John Laumeister
I am researching John Laumeister who was my great grandmother's step father. Her biological father was John Burns. She had a brother John Burns stepson of John Laumeister. There are times I have found both names on death certs of her children.
It was very confusing for awhile and I now have it straight lol.
I don't believe he is related but I can't say for sure. If I discover anything I will let you know.

I don't know if you know, but there is a Christian's family plot at the Greenwood Cemetery with a number of other family members there.
