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.

Re: Gayle Knickerbocker
Thanks for the info, yeah I see it now, when I did my search it didn't show up because it's one of those 1/2 crapped memorials, one would think when you are making a memorial they would atleast have the dob and dod it's not hard to find on soldier.

Jackson Mich marker
Thank you. Thanks to you and a photo you shared I discovered that the information we had on my Great-great Grandma was incorrect. My Gr-GR Grandfather Luke Cassidy Sr was listed as being married to Rose. It showed they had a daughter Rose as well. By seeing your photo we discovered his wife was Susan. I looked up a death cert for my Great-Grandfather Francis to find it listed Susan. I would not have discovered this had I not seen your photo, which I was going to borrow for a family book I am writing. So thank you much for the work you've done. John

Stillson Memorial
Hello, and thanks for accepting the link to Eli Stillson. I was following a branch of Pickards and crossed the Stillsons. Do you have connection to either lineage?

Thank you for your kindness
You put up some of my Skiles relatives in Ingomar Pa in 2007, and I wanted to tell you that finding them has really helped me.I am sure it will help many other people too, now and future. Bless you.
