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.

Not sure why my email disappeared from the contact info:

Hi Deb, thank you for taking care of this for me. Since the legible markers have been uploaded, were you able to confirm that she is buried there?

Ira D. Knapp page
I know of at least two other pages on Findagrave that should be linked to Ira, but they're administered by two separate people. One is Imay Knapp Perkins, who was a daughter of Ira and his (first?) wife, Ada Raymond Knapp. Also, a listing for Iola E. Wilkes, whose full name is Iola Erma Knapp Thuston Wilkes. She was a daughter of Ira and Ada as well. They also had seven other children, one of whom was a twin to Melvin. Feel free to contact me if you'd like.

Peter Lowe
Thank You for taking the picture of Peter Lowe's grave and all the others! It really helps! Peter Lowe is my husband's ancestor. It took a long time before we found where he died. It is sweet to be able to link his stone to our tree.
Thank You

Thanks for the correction. I have edited his memorial and linked him to Ester Taylor. I was also able to add the taylor line to my tree.
Thanks again

Hi Deb
I agree with the death date you found because it looks like the marker was put there at a later date.
Thank you

Welthia Shepard French
Do you know any descendants of the Joseph and Mary Ann (Thayer) Shepard family? This family appears to be part of the Lothamer/Lumbard family tree on Ancestry (don't have subscription so can't contact). There is a picture of the three Shepard women attached.

Welthia's grand-father can be found here:
# 114094979, Joseph Shepard, West Jamaica, VT

Her sister, Ella, married Henry French, found here:
# 23512094, Ella E. French, Onondaga, MI

Another sister, Myrtle Pierce, found here:
# 44745116

Anson and Wealthy Baker
Thanks again Deb for clarifying that for me. Once in a while I've come across a situation where there has been no stone to find out there is also no burial - mis-recorded cemetery, So thanks for clearing it up for me.
