Bio and Links
Bio Photo ********I was ill for a few months and probably missed some requests. If I didn't get to it, please resend it.**********My name is 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 Greg serving in Arizona. Also, pseudo-aunt, I guess, to Joe, a member of my local congregation, serving in California and Josie, a former member of my congregation serving in Mexico. 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.

Mary C. Walker's number
Find A Grave Memorial# 37059650

Mary Walker
Dear Becky, I hope you are better and back in the game. I have a correction for you, if I may please, as the name is correct, but the data is wrong. It has the data for Mary R. Walker, which is correct for Mary Rose Walker.

Look at the dates, tho, how confusing and Opportunity is near Sunset Memorial Cemetery, MT., yet I don't know of any connection (yet).

Mary R. Walker at Find A Grave is # 143718786.

Walter Jennings
My name is Gail A. Woolard. I live in North Carolina. My mother was a Howard.

I have been searching for my Grandfather's cousin, Eugene Howard for years. I "think" Eugene Howard was the Father in Law of Walter Jennings. I believe Eugene had a Daughter named Jean Howard. Eugene would have been born in Granville or Person County, North Carolina. Do you think this might have been the same Eugene Howard. Our Eugene Howard's father was Edward Howard.

Thank you!
Gail A. Woolard

Photo for First James River Norsk Lutheran Cemetery
Becky, glad you are back and wish you the best. We had some communications a couple years ago and I added you to as a "friend". I currently have a problem with a photo being approved by Find A Grave and I am seeking an unbiased opinion from one that I greatly respect in the Find A Grave community of volunteers. If you do not agree, feel free to express your honest opinion but I feel "common sense" should prevail and one can't apply a good general rule to every situation.

Your bio includes the following:
"I do this because I believe that every person/being is important and deserves to be remembered."

This is the way I feel about a great-grandfather and 11 others who were buried in a cemetery that has since turned into farm land. There are undoubtedly thousands of descendants, like me, that don't know what happened to an ancestor. Now that my great-grandfather's sad fate has been determined, I want to be sure it is documented, along with the others, so that their descendants can learn the fate of their ancestor and save them considerable time searching and wondering without an answer.

Here is the problem, I wanted a nice photo for the cemetery home page. I found what I thought was appropriate, licensed the photo, and added a caption for this cemetery. However, Find A Grave is rejecting my photo submission for the cemetery as "inappropriate" and suggests that I submit a photo of the main gate, cemetery sign, monument, etc. Obviously none of these exist, not even sure anyone can locate the cemetery any closer than Jamesville Township. Each township consists of 36 sections, each measuring one square mile or six miles square. So, the "cemetery" is somewhere within a 36 squire mile area.

To make it easy, the photo in question is also my profile photo and whether you think it is appropriate to use it as a Find A Grave cemetery photo for a cemetery that was abandoned and returned to farm land in 1940. The details follow but you may not need.

My great-grandfather, Nikolai Larson #14396933 drowned about 1881 and was buried in a cemetery that was abandoned and became farm land in 1940. His name and 11 others, appear on the WPA list dated Feb 1941 for First James River Norsk Lutheran Cemetery in rural Yankton County, SD.

Due to the lack of a physical or Find A Grave cemetery, another Find A Grave member created memorials in another cemetery with a similar name but in the wrong Township. Recently, I had 11 of these 12 Find A Grave memorials transferred to me and then created a new cemetery on Feb 19 and transferred the 11 memorials to the correct cemetery.

The history on the home page and Nikolai Larson's memorial #14396933 is a "work in progress". It started as an explanation on my great-grandfather's memorial and I am in the process of "cleaning it up" to provide a good history and explanation on the cemetery home page with something to be added to all 11 and maybe the 12th whose descendant I am in touch with who is an Olsberg, Find A Grave member "Corey in Nebraska" with documentation that his great-grandfather was buried beside my great-grandfather.

Sorry to bother you, but would appreciate your opinion and suggestions.

Hope you're doing well...
I have re-sent edits that were never processed, so hope you are doing well now and can enjoy your contributions to Find A Grave! If you would like, I would be glad to manage all the "Douma's" in Meadowview Cemetery, as I know the family quite well and went to school with some of them. I plan to get all their memorials updated, so it may be easier for you to simply transfer them to me. Contributor # 46957268. Thanks so much. Stay well!
