Only 1 Has A Headstone
The date was August 25, 1931. FIVE men DIED fighting the devastating Waldron Creek Fire west of Choteau. When it was all over, 3 men were buried in unmarked graves. 1 body was returned to his family but no burial site is known. Only 1 had a headstone. It's all in the book that we'll continue reading this evening during Montana History up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. I'll see you at 6 o'clock SHARP tonight for more Montana History at the Heritage as we continue with Dr. Charles Palmer's (of Missoula) tome, "Montana's Waldron Creek Fire: The 1931 Tragedy And The Forgotten Five. Memories are ALL that remain!
