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.

Christenson cemetery
I received a message from a man who is from Wisdom, MT. He is concerned that the spelling of the cemetery is wrong, and it is listed in Jackson instead of Wisdom. If you created the site I wonder if you could make the changes. This is his message:

The only area find a grave error that I see in the Christenson Cemetery. That Cemetery is not near Jackson, but is 13 miles North of Wisdom, near the Wallace Christiansen Ranch. Note the spelling is Christiansen. Wallace’s Son Larry and Ted and grandchildren still live in the area, and the ranch is still in the family!

If you could take care of this I'm sure he would be very happy.
Thanks.

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 !!

Genealogy Site??
Find A Grave was not a genealogy site until it was purchased by Ancestry.om
It was supposed to be a kind, respectful to the deceased. for one hate all the crap people want on them now. It is so offensive.

Hello, I just happened on the memorial pages for these people, and I must say what a wonderful photo you have posted. I'm researching this family because a Daughter of theirs married into the Pavlovic Family that is the main Family name I'm looking into at this time. Any way again what a very nice photo! Cheryl

RE: Lawence Tromly
RE: Lawrence Tromly
Earnest, I added Laurence Tromley to Mount Moriah because this is where he actually is buried. The SAW memorial site is shared by St. Patrick's Cemetery and Mount Moriah Cemetery. St. Patrick's is Catholic and Mount Moriah is the city/county cemetery. In documenting the graves for these veterans, I went by the official records of both cemeteries.

My apologies for failing to add this note to Laurence's find-a-grave memorial:

"While officially buried in Mount Moriah Cemetery, Laurence Tromley is also listed in find-a-grave at St. Patrick's Cemetery along with all SAW Veterans who are buried in the dual DAR plot for Spanish American War Veterans."

I have a copy of his official military burial record showing him buried at Mount Moriah. I can send you a copy if you wish. He is on record at Mount Moriah and not St. Patrick's. Pat

This is the answer I got from Pat
