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:

Robert Richard ABBOTT
Robert was part of the crew of Lt.John Suckiu (Crew # 725, 466th Bomb Group) and indeed was on the plane "Lady Lightening" along with a friend, bombadier, Arthur PALLADINO. Arthur is still living, nearly 95 years old. I have interviewed him and he remembered the names of the crew and related details of the day to me. He has an amazing memory for his age. Arthur was a prisoner of war for 9 months, held on the Baltic Sea until the Russians liberated the POWs there. Arthur parachuted out of the plane from the wheel well area and realized as he floated down that he would land in the middle of the German air field. The plane flew out of the base in Attlebridge, England. My father-in-law, Mike was the chief mechanic for the B-24 & P-36 planes at Attlebridge. My husband & I will visit the museum there this year. The group of men were part of the 8th Army Air Corp. The division was called the "Flying Deck" and broken into the card suits. The Lady Lightening bore the insignia of the "Spades" unit, the one Mike was in. I am writing a biography of Mike and one of Arthur to leave there. Thank you for posting the grave information. God Bless all of our service members. Marcia

Wolfe Family Cemetery
I am researching James Kelley/Louisa Maples Kelley in Wolfe Family Cemetery for a family decendant living in California. Can you please contact me? you appear to be a descendant also. I look forward to hearing from you.

The decendent is looking for information of the father of this James Kelley(1821-1901) who is believed to have died 1850-1851 and Elliner Kelley Stuck, who remarried Jacob Stuck in 1851.

Would you have any information what happened to James Kelly, Sr. (?-1850) who arrived in Medina TWP, Lenawee County about 1833?

Mary Clark Carpenter at Richards Cemetery
I believe Mary Carpenter, buried in Michigan, in Richards Cemetery is an ancestor of mine. I am trying to verify the link on the memorial page to Daniel Carpenter buried in Indiana. Can you tell me what information was discovered to link the husband and wife buried in different states. That would really be helpful. Thank you.
