Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it! I don't keep the 60,000 plus photos that I've taken.

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

RE: Cement City
Not a problem. I know what confusion there is with the county line running down the center of the road. I have changed it to Jackson County and I feel that is where it should be listed. The zip code on the listing will remain 49233 as that is a Cement City address.

RE: Cement City
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I believe the reason I had Lenawee county was because that is where Cement City proper is located. I have changed it to Jackson county. I realize that that side of the road is Jackson county as I use to work for the school district and had to become familiar with the county lines when registering students into the Columbia School District and for reporting purposes for the state. Thank you again for your help.

Wanda Rutkowski - photo

Thank you so much for this photo. Wanda passed in 2011, however I see that the stone has not been updated. Would you let me know what, if anything, I can do get this done? Thank you for all the time and effort you have given to this site. J

Thank you so much for the cemetery correction. As they are distant relatives I am glad to make the correction and find their actual resting place. RLE
