Bio and Links
Bio Photo Because of fires, floods and loss, I started photographing all the markers in Jackson Co Michigan in Nov 2006. We've discovered the 1927 DAR WPA cemetery transcription project didn't have anyone actually walk any of the county cemeteries. They obtained the information from cemetery records, church records and neighbors. Fortunately for all of us this included records of those graves with no markers. Most of the early cemetery records have perished along with some of the cemeteries. Hopefully, we will be able to provide info for descendants of the early/current residents of Jackson County Michigan. By using census, marriage, death and local history information we try to make our entries as complete as possible. Email with info on your ancestors and we'll add them to any of our records. We'll be happy to help you in your search.

Currently, I'm working on adding maiden names to as many memorials as possible.

As of 22 Aug 2009 Jackson Co FAG volunteers have 66,501 burials recorded, by Jan 2010 72,323 burials and by Jan 2013 101,483 burials. Many of the cemeteries have been completed with pics.

Please request edits, corrections & transfers thru the SAC tab (edit tab on the memorial page) and not here on the home page. Remember to check the new "edit" tab on your own homepage to see the corrections/additions sent to you.

Thanks to all those FAGer's who have trusted me to take care of their memorials and have transferred their memorials over to me while they take a leave from findagrave.

McNaughton Cemetery
Hi - how complete is McNaughton? I just rec'd a copy of the death certificate for Iva Laura (Whipple) West from 1934 and it says she is buried at Oakdale, which is the same cemetery right? Thanks. Also her husband Vernon who died in 1938 may be buried there too.

Margaret Tenant
Thanks for letting me know that Margaret Tenant doesn't have a headstone to photograph. Her daughter, Betsey Moses Maxson, is also buried in the same cemetery, so that must mean she doesn't have a headstone either. Is there a burial list for this cemetery? I wondered if Margaret's husband Jonas might be buried there.

Charles Frederick Smith Sr
Memorial #112963275 Oakview Cemetery, Royal Oak--
You did a wonderful job describing my Great Grandfather's family. His son, Charles Frederick Smith, Jr was my grandfather and my mother was Myrtle May Smith-Frantz.--- I understand there are no grave markers at their graves.

Thanks again---great job with details.

Mary Clark Carpenter
Thank you for responding on the Wheaton question. Now I have a question on Mary Clark Carpenter's birth date. Her birth date is listed as 1794 on her memorial page and the death notice birth date on memorial page is 1793. The tombstone is hard to read. She is now added to my family tree and I'm not sure which date to use. Also her husband, Daniel Carpenter's memorial page shows he is married to the same Mary Clark Carpenter buried in Michigan, but buried in Indiana. Can you help me at all on the story of how he moved to Indiana? I can't find him in the 1860 Federal Census.

Howe tombstone photos
I want to thank you very much for your photos of various Howe family tombstones. I am in Washington State and will probably never be able to go to Michigan to take such photos myself.
Thank you,

RE: Beldings
I appreciate your wisdom.

From the book it says: Consider Belding...[removed] 1839 to Hanover, Jackson, MI. His wife d in Apr 1843 and abt. 1847 he broke up housekeeping and lived with his children until his death in 1849, at the residence of his oldest son, Elihu, in Moscow, Hillsdale Co., MI.

Two children are claimed of dying in Hanover, MI: Daughter Lucretia and Son John; Son Selah died near Hanover. Two daughters married there and moved to other parts of MI.

Am sad they cannot be found.

Thanks for your help! You're the BEST!!!
