Note
Buried with her first husband John S. Smith at Doss Cemetery, Mossyrock, Lewis County, WA. Grave marker lists ger birth year as 1862 http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=74886856
Note
Artie and JS Smith had a whole bunch of kids. I'm mostly concerned about the Thomas Hardin murder/suicide, so I'm only listing the two who were present for that.
Note
I'm not sure if Artie and William H Hagerman, Sr. were legally married. Some online trees list a date of 1907 or 1908, but don't show sources. Newpaper accounts refer to her as Artie Hagerman, but one specifically says that people tried unsuccessfully to find documentation of a marriage.
Note
1910 Census shows WHH1 in Chehalis with Winona's family. Oddly, Atie is living separately with six of her kids in Sulphur Creek, roughly 60 miles away. She's listed as Artie Hagerman, though.
