Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it! I don't keep the 60,000 plus photos that I've taken.

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

RE: Tomich
Hi Vern:

You're a man on a mission! I know many people appreciate the work that you are doing, myself included. When I'm back in Jackson, I have gone out to the cemetery to drive around, and notice many of the parents of classmates and neighbors.

all the best,

Good Morning Vernon: I hope you're doing well. A couple of years ago you asked if I wanted to manage my parents [Tomich] memorials/gravestones; Yes, I would like to do that. Thank you so much.

This is a duplicate for my father, Elwin Lloyd Knowles.
49016521 is the correct memorial for him.
Could you please delete this one?

Thank you,
Mary Knowles Brennan

RE: Cement City
Not a problem. I know what confusion there is with the county line running down the center of the road. I have changed it to Jackson County and I feel that is where it should be listed. The zip code on the listing will remain 49233 as that is a Cement City address.

RE: Cement City
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I believe the reason I had Lenawee county was because that is where Cement City proper is located. I have changed it to Jackson county. I realize that that side of the road is Jackson county as I use to work for the school district and had to become familiar with the county lines when registering students into the Columbia School District and for reporting purposes for the state. Thank you again for your help.

Thank you!
A big thank you and a tip of the hat to you for the great gravestone photos of the Welch's in St. John's Cemetery in Jackson Co. God bless you and your family!
