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.

Phillip Sparrow
Thanks you for the correction of the 1940 census.
Are you related to the Sparrow family? Phillip is my 3rd cousin, 1x removed. Trying to find out more information on him and his wife.

RE: Ralph Seybert
Thanks for the information indicating one must be a cenotaph e.g. a memory plaque and not an actual burial plaque. Although I am only a distant relative, I think it's important to know where he is actually buried so I will follow up on this and let you know what (if any) information I find. Thanks so much for your reply. D

I wanted to thank you so much for leaving the photo of the cemetery on my memorial for my Aunt. I have moved away from Jackson several years ago and do not have the ability to just take a photo. I appreciate what you did for me so much! Thank You.

For adding the photo for John Bolton, now this baby has been connected to his family.

RE: Addie Jenkins
Thanks Deb, I added the paper write-up. I am having fun going through old Jackson newspapers dating back to 1911 that my husband picked up at a garage sale.
