Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in history and genealogy my whole life. I recently started my own family tree and I came across this site. It's been helpful to me and I think they're doing a great service for other people like me. I will do my best to fulfill any photo requests I get. I am able to go to most cemeteries in Clinton County and Jackson County here in Michigan.

I have started focusing on the smaller older cemeteries in my county and surrounding counties. I'm trying to collect the information on those graves before they're lost to time.

You don't have to request using my photos on other websites or your own personal projects. You have my full permission to use my photo of your family member's headstone.

Thank you!

P.S. Daniel and Ann Cole
Made a typo: that should be "per the 1860 census" in: "per the 1850 census, they had at least three children". Guess we can't edit our own messages.

Daniel H. Cole & wife Ann

According to information in the Fleagle Family Database, Daniel H. Cole (143929867) was born in 1807 and died in 1863. His wife was Ann Bushnell (143929622) who was born in 1814 and died in 1877. Sources for this information are not explicitly given in the database, unfortunately, but may have come from a granddaughter, Nellie Henrietta Fleagle Marshall, in 1942.

Based on census and marriage records I've found, Daniel was born in Massachusetts; Ann in New York. Daniel H. Cole and Ann Bushnell married May 1836 in Geauga Co Ohio. In the 1860 census, Daniel H. Cole was listed as the "Sup" [superintendent?] of the Sandusky County Ohio infirmary (which included the county poor home) and per the 1850 census, they had at least three children: Mary (b. MA), Henrietta F.(?--initial unclear)(b. NY), and Orville B.(b. NY). In 1850 he was listed as a farmer, same county, same three children.

Mary M. Cole was Peter Fleagle's first wife (which I how I got involved in this!), both also buried there.

Thought you might want to re-word this and add some of it in a note, especially for Daniel. As you say his stone is illegible, you might emphasize that the birth and death dates are from an outside source, not the tombstone itself.

Was delighted to find your entries for Daniel and Ann Cole--completed just a couple of months ago.

Hope you find the above useful.

Keep up the good work!

GAGE, Clarissa
First, thank you very much for the headstone photo. Did you take this photo with an ipad? You turned it and when you saved the photo, you saved in evidentally forgot to flip the photo! Maybe go back to your original photo, and flip it!

(Blanche is her sister)
I will inform her that is not the case.
Thank you for your help

I greatly appreciate all of the time and effort you invested in trying to find Benjamin (B) Sooy's headstone in Old Fulton Cemetery! I am sorry that it was a wasted trip...

Thank you so much!
