This could be them. I think the Marvin is actually Maxim but hard to tell due to the cursive.

They weren't brilliant at writing back then, could be many abbreaviations for Maximillian  ;)

Tell me about it haha. It'd solve so many issues with misspelling if we knew their distinct styles

I think I found some entries that might be them, under the spelling of Shoppee.   ::)

In the meantime, another Holy Cross burial that is very promising, mainly because the informant was a Dobbins:

Deceased:  Jennie Marie Storm
Born Canada, 08 July 1878
Father: Maximillian Shappee
Mother's name unknown.
Informant: Mrs. Dobbins 1702 S Yewdall St (which is the same address as the deceased)
DoD  27 Apr 1878

Ah oddly enough I did find that out, but didn't have her associated with my main tree.
Thank you for referencing that!

Although the list of children on the censuses that Sandra posted aren't identical, I think they are the same family, which would point to Anna's parents being Maximillian and Mary Scott.  They appear to be Catholic, so I'm surprised to see the lack of births showing in the Catholic Registers.

Here's the death index for Levy  (His marriage/censuses/children are very easy to search in Washington State):
Name:    Levi Peter Shappee
Gender:    Male
Birth Date:    abt 1865
Death Date:    22 Mar 1933
Age at Death:    68
Death Location:    Seattle, King, Washington
Father:    Maxsin Shappee
Mother:    Mary Scott
Record Source:    Washington State Death Records

Haha trust me, I have found like 7 different variations of the spelling and its driven me up a wall for a while, hence why I held off on trying to drive deeper into her family. Chapue would probably be the best bet when I head down looking for Maxim's family, as thats probably the cloest to the French origin of the name.
