Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Becky and I'm a friend to all animals and most people. I'm an American, a Montanan, a 911 Dispatcher, an EMT, a writer, a Republican, an aviation and maritime enthusiast, a firearms enthusiast, genealogist, a pianist, an aspiring violinist, and a frustrated Raiders fan.

I have an affinity for lighthouses, airplanes and most shades of purple. I was born in Utah, reared in Montana, and consider myself a Michigander at heart. My favorite states are Montana, Michigan, and Maryland. But, I haven't been to Hawai'i yet!

I believe in God the Eternal Father and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

I love my country and am PROUD to be an American. I support our military. I thank our veterans and those of our allies. We owe them so much. Thank you seems so small a gesture for those who have given so much so that we could be and stay free.

I am a proud missionary aunt to Anne, who is serving in North Carolina and KayReah, serving in Colorado. I hope to follow their example someday.

There are so many people that I have a deep respect for. My parents, Walter Maurice Warner and Mildred Elnora (Nash) Warner, and my sister, Brenda Lee Warner, are among them. I suppose my favorite person ever would be my Grandma, Mary Etta (Bradley) Nash.

My ancestry includes Mi'kmaq, French, Irish, British, Scottish, French Canadian, Acadian, and others we haven't confirmed yet.

My roots run deep in Michigan, Utah, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nova Scotia and Quebec.

I have been adding burials from many Southwest Montana cemeteries. I have added burials from the Montana state orphanage at Twin Bridges and the state Children's Home and Hospital in Helena. I have this listed in my virtual cemeteries.

I do this because I believe that every person/being is important and deserves to be remembered. And, if just one person finds a long-lost relative or friend from my efforts, my time has been worth it.

One of my favorite TV shows as a child was The Waltons. In a guest appearance as Martha Corinne Walton, Beulah Bondi said it best, "Neglected graves are a shameful thing." I have seen some very neglected cemeteries. But, neglected veterans' graves upset me the most. I don't believe in "non-perpetual care." I want to make something clear. When I say that neglected graves are shameful, I am talking about physical neglect-- strewn with rubbish, overgrowth, gopher holes, etc. I do not in any way mean that a grave is neglected if loved ones are unable to visit it often. Why anyone would think that is beyond me, but I've gotten enough emails that I felt the need to explain that.

For reasons I don't always understand, some people are offended to find their loved ones listed on a genealogical website. Obviously, they are not genealogists themselves. While I may not always understand their feelings, I do respect them. If a record I've added is of your loved one and you want it removed, let me know POLITELY (unlike one dolt who threatened to kill me and erroneously thought that I didn't have access to enough information about him through a single e-mail to file charges) and I will gladly remove it. I am also happy to transfer ownership to relatives. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for non-commercial genealogical purposes.

Two transfers, please?
Hello -

Would you please transfer Ella Grindley Sites (30403758) and Margret Grindley (30587668) to my management? Mrs. Grindley is my husband's great great grandmother (and my children's GGGgrandmother). Ella is her daughter. When Ella and her baby died, my husband's great grandmother, Anna Grindley, married Ella's widower, James Sites. We came out last summer to visit them and the cemetery and we are now looking at this cemetery as our final resting place, despite the fact that we have relatives buried all over the Helena area. It is such a beautiful spot.

Thank you for all of the work that you have done at Find A Grave to benefit many and to benefit my family. We really appreciate it and we pay it back by doing Find A Grave work elsewhere.

Thank you very much.

Duplicate with your photo
Hi Becky, I'm going to notify and work with a pair of memorial creators to merge a set of duplicates. You have a photo posted on one of them. Might you please copy and post it on the other to hopefully make sure it won't get lost in the process?

Copy from: 57882071
To: 41943591

We are certain that his headstone surname is misspelled, unfortunately. It should be DiGrazia per his parents' headstone, mentions in newspapers and his SS Death listing.

When you're done copying the photo over, could you please let me know and I'll contact the creators for the rest of the process?

Thanks for this and all the wonderful work you do on Find A Grave,

Lewis & Clark Co. Silas Dexter; Civil War veteran
May I use the photo that you contributed to the Find A Grave memorial page of Silas Dexter, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (
He was a Native Son of Vt, being born in Wardsboro in 1832.

You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.
