Baby Monster dies

Very little is known about 3-month-old infant other than Monster was his or her last name (accompanying the baby in death is John Monster, presumably the father). As to why the child is not named, it’s possible a baptism had not been performed and so did not have a Christian name yet, or the grave may have been erected sometime later and the infant’s name had been lost to time. Unfortunately, the King County death records only go back as far as 1891 so I could not find any additional information on the baby, its name, or the reason for its death.
