Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to express my thanks to everyone who has sent corrections and additional information to me concerning my entries on Find-A-Grave. I hope everyone doesn't think I am rude for not getting back to them and thanking each individual one. There are only so many hours in a day.

Rather than creating a duplicate memorial of a memorial someone else has already entered, why not contact that person and ask them to either edit their entry or at least transfer that memorial to you.

Please, if anyone discovers a mistake in my entries or have any information to add, delete, or would like a transfer of a memorial please contact me through Find A Grave or send me an email.

Please feel free to copy photos I've added on Find A for your own family history records. It is not necessary to contact me directly for permission, but please indicate that I provided the photo and that it is being used with permission.

Fairview Cemetery
Hi there. My father-in-law is the sexton for Fairview Cemetery in Jackson County, Iowa. Has been for near 40 years. I am working on creating a record book on all graves in Fairview, including the link of families buried in other area cemeteries such as Sterling, Buckeye, Evergreen, Reeseville, etc. I have located quite a bit of information so far and will be sending you messages per memorial with changes/additions such as birth dates, name corrections, family relationships, etc. I am also adding photos if headstones are still available. Unfortunately, several were damaged years ago and never replaced, so I can only guess an actual location of many. I am hoping to be able to place temporary plastic grave stakes at those locations so we have some recognition for those individuals. Thank you for taking the time to update all memorials for Fairview Cemetery.

David E Briggs, died 16 Dec 1803 in Sabula, Iowa!?
Hi Thomas,

We've communicated in the past and I trust your knowledge base so I'm going to run a bit of a puzzle through your mind regarding a “burial” monument in the Evergreen Cemetery in Sabula, Jackson County, Iowa, that is from 1803, yes, I said 1803! It's a bit hard to believe, since I don't think there were ANY settlers in the area until at the very earliest, about 1820 something.

David E. Briggs died 16 December 1803, age 10y – 6m – 17d born 30 May 1793.

You have on the fagm# 35084210 that he is the “son of D, May Briggs”. Do you do the inscriptions after you have taken the pics, by going back later and trying to make out what the tombstone says from your pics, or do you actually take the inscription of the names and dates on the tombstones at the cemetery when you're taking the pics?

Do you think there is a possibility that David Briggs memorial actually says son of D.M. & E. Briggs?

I wish when I was back there 3years ago, I would have taken a picture of that stone. I live in Alaska, so it's probably going to be a long time till I get back there again.

So what's your take? Do you think there is an actual body buried there or is it more plausible that a memorial was set up by family, years later? Do you know what the very earliest internment is at Evergreen? This has got to be one of the earliest there. I do remember when I was back there, this memorial was kind of out in an area of the cemetery where there weren't many other graves. Is it also possible that someone moved the stone to Evergreen from a different location after the fact of David's real burial?

Hello Thomas. I have a request. I have noticed you have taken a lot of pictures in Evergreen Cemetery. I live in New Orleans and my 3x great grandfather is buried in Evergreen. Find A Grave Memorial# 143830665.

Would you be able to photograph his grave whenever you would get back that way? I would so appreciate it!

Ann Bankson
I have a question for you concerning Ann 12295923 and Andrew 63030913 Bankson. The only Iowa marriage certificate I can locate for an Ann and Andrew Bankson in Jackson County is in 1864. Do you think this date is a mistake, the gravestone has the incorrect date, or I have the incorrect people. Right now I have Andrew T connected to Ann Bankson. I would greatly appreciate your assistance on this one.

memorial #15627297 & # 15627309
Hello Thomas,
I was hoping to find out if you have a close-up picture of the stone that is attached to both of these memorials so I can read all of the sides. Do you remember if both of their names are on the stone? John & Ann Margaret were brother & sister. I know Ann Margaret was married & I was wondering if he might be on another side.

Thank you for all the work you have done, it means the world to me & my family.
