Info / obit for Charles Norton, 1855 - 1921, married to Mary McDermott

Surnames: Norton
I'm looking for more information on the Charles Norton identified in the death record below. The birth date calculated from the information below is 8 May 1855. He is possibly my great-grandfather, but I would have to overcome these two issues:

1) An 1855 census lists my ggf's age as "3/12", which would place his birth month in March.
2) This death location is 1,800 miles from my ggf's hometown, which is where he grew up, where he lived most of his adult life and which is his residence as of the 1920 Census (which is the last record I have for him).

Two of his children were alive at the time: In 1920, one was in Texas and the other was in Big Horn County, Montana. Both had recently ended their railroad careers. I am not aware of any relatives in Washington, then.

Thanks for any clues
