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.

#25846333 Joseph P. Hartmiller

Joseph Hartmiller was the son of Germany immigrants. His father, Mathew Hartmiller was born in Dirmstein, Pfalz, Bavaria. Matthew Hartmiller traveled with his family through France to board a ship to America. Joseph’s mother, Margaret Floersch was born in Worms, Rheinhessen, Hessen, Germany.

Joseph P. Hartmiller was born on June 12 ,1859 in Cleveland, Ohio and moved Montana in 1882 at age twenty-three. He worked in the Bald Butte mine in Marysville and did some placer mining on Poor Man Creek in the Lincoln district.

In 1898 he discovered a vein of silver and lead. He named the mine, the Mike Horse Mine. It is 3 miles up Beartrap Creek from the Blackfoot river. The mine was originally claimed from public land in 1890 by Joseph Hartmiller. Joseph organized the Mike Horse Mining company shortly after the discovery. By 1901 the mine adit was 1,100 ft. long. The mine was sold many times, but developers soon went broke and Joseph would foreclose and get it back.

He was married to Nellie Ellen Robinson on June 8, 1909. Nellie was born on March 20, 1886 in Lincoln, MT. Nellie's parents emigrated to America in 1870 from Stockport, England. Her parents were William Robinson and Elizabeth Davis.

Joseph and Nellie lived in Marysville. They had four daughters. Mary Josephine Hartmiller born July 16 1923 in Helena, MT. Anna Mae Hartmiller born March 30, 1920 Catherine Helen Hartmiller, who was born Sept 26, 1917. Lillie Licebeth Hartmiller, she was born July 7 1912.

Joseph P Hartmiller died of Pneumonia on January 4, 1948 in Marysville, MT. Nellie passed away the year before, March 3, 1947 in Helena.

I would like to add a bio to Joseph's Memorial and link family members.I don't know if you would rather transfer it to me or if you wouldn't mind doing it. I would be greatly appreciative either way. Thank you.

Transfer of Ella Grindley
Hello again Becky -

Thank you for all of your wonderful work regarding so many relatives of others including my family's relatives. We went to see Ella today in Jefferson City - we found her because of YOU!

I would like to request transfer of her grave to my management. #30403758 When Ella died, James married Ella's sister, Anna, who is my husband's great grandmother and he is my husband's great grandfather. In fact, Nellie is the daughter of Anne, not Ella, and Anne's first husband, Harry Whiting, in Detroit. We have the bible given to Ella by her mother, whom we also found today, thanks to you.

I very much appreciate your consideration. Thank you.

Thank You!
Hello Becky,
I wanted to thank you for your selfless efforts in helping people like myself and my family members. I am planning a long overdue trip to visit my grandparents graves over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and I was thrilled to find the pictures that you have taken.
Thank you again and God bless you!
