Narrative

Hattie Dyment, daughter of Henry Dyment and Matilda Mcgillian (?) married James Baker in 1892 in Cambridge Massachusettts. In the 1900 census, Hattie had been married to James Baker for 10 years. They had had 8 children, of whom only two survived. (this might be an error - only 3 children are in Massachusetts births or deaths) The two surviving children were George and Aretha. The family was living in Tacoma in 1900.

Henrietta (or Hattie Ellen) Baker claimed to be a widow in 1909 when she married Charles Andrew Bunn in Victoria, British Columbia. However, James Baker was still living in 1910, and gave his status as divorced in the census of that year. In 1912, Harriet Ellen Baker married Joseph Bramblett. He was 24 and she claimed to be 30 and a widow. On both marriage records, her parents' names were Henry and Matilda Dyment.

In the 1920 census she was living with her daughter and son in law (Ardlia Laframboise) under the name Helen Baker, age 47.

At the time of her death, she was again a widow.

There were family stories that Hattie's children were adopted - the Massachusetts records don't give any indication of this. It is possible that Hattie herself started these stories, to explain how she had teenagers, when at the time she was taking close to 15 years off of her age.
