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:

Thank you for the transfer of my great grand-parents memorial. I can't begin to tell you what this means to me.

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.

Thank You again. I did not have that second marriage record. Nor a divorce record for her first marriage or a death record for Newton.

Might you be related?? If not would you be willing to transfer. She is my great aunt. Also...Josiah's middle initial is T. (some have said for "Troop", but being as his grandfather was "Thomas Parker" (who was a DAR Patriot Ancestor and the Great Grandfather "George" is also) it is probably Thomas.

Josiah's Mem # is 66602285
Roxania's is 66602302

Again as Thank You.

From one F.A.G. Contributor to another....Good Job!!!
