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, English, 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.

Annie Matthews - Mt Moriah Cemetery, Montana
Hello 'a Marine's daughter'

I would like to thank you for adding a photo of the grave of Annie Matthews. She is my great grandfathers sister making her my grandmother aunt. My grandmother is 85 and I have been looking for her grandfathers grave which I have found in British Colombia. We are all the way over in Australia so I have asked for a volunteer to take a photo for us. My grandmother never knew what happened to her grandfather and his final resting place was a mystery until recently. Annie was one of his children and we have discovered that there were more children than we realised. My grandmother is hard to convince saying 'but my father never mentioned them'. Well he was the youngest so that might explain a few things as some died as babies and children before and shortly after he was born. He would have known Annie though as he would have been 10 when she passed away.
Just wondering are you related to Annie or is she one of your volunteer grave requests
Cheers
Megan

Pop Pop McCready
Hi Becky,
Thank you so much for you kind words. They mean a lot. My grand father Lloyd McCready was known by every one in the family as Pop Pop.
He grew up poor and was born in what is known as Lawsonia, at a place known as Apes Hole. Growing up he lived on the rough side and carried a gun. He hung around with his cousins who were even worse. Crisfield, Md was known as the Dodge City of the east. In 1907 Crisfield was the 2nd largest city in Maryland. Baltimore being the largest. Today we only have less than 2000.
Pop Pop and Mom Mom (Mildred Bell Huckins Benson McCready,That is believe it or not her birth name except her married name of McCready) never owned much except the home place. They never had a driver's lisences either. They had 4 children. If every family had parents and grand parents like them,then the world would be a much better place.
Out of his 4 brothers and two sisters he worked three jobs so that one of his sisters could finish high school. He was the only one who helped his mother and father with their bill at the local store. He was a GREAT story teller so much so, the National Archives sent a man down to record his life and stories.Family was ALWAYS first. That's what should have been put on their headstone.

Thank You !!
