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:

RE: Isaac Corwin
Thanks, Deb!

I really appreciate all you do on find-a-grave! NY and MI have such a strong family connection, and it's great to find that so many of the descendants of folks I'm working on in NY already have memorials in MI, thanks to you and some other very dedicated volunteers.

Take care.

Dear Ms. Hayes-Wolfe.

I want to thank you for all of your work on Jackson County residents. I'm doing some research for the Political Graveyard, and your efforts have been very helpful. If I can be of any help, please feel free to contact me.

Your Amy BOLLES Headstone Photo
Hi Deb,

I'd like to get you permission to use your photo of Amy BOLLES Headstone (Find A Grave Memorial# 8237996) in her WikiTree Profile. She was my Gr-Gr-Gr Grandmother. Thanks again for your great work on the Grahams at Wright!

Thank you all for your efforts to preserve via photographs the existing head stones. Do you know what might happen to the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Jackson if it is sold. What are the laws regulating such?
My great Uncle is buried there and I had no idea when or where he died. THANK YOU!
Are there any records other than MI death Records 1867-1950 available? Does the Cemetery have any that they will share?
A never ending quest - but you have helped a bunch!

John Crego (Infant)
Hi Deb,

I have a question about the burial of John Crego (Infant) Memorial #19299210. Listed as a son of John & Jenette (Paddock) Crego.

His death birth/death date are listed as Jan. 1844 - Aug. 22nd, 1844.

His mother Memorial #5037799 states that she died in July 24th, 1843.

How could he be born after the death of his mother? Help ?

Thank you
Thank you so much for all the memorials and info that you provide. You show info on some of my very distant relatives, that I didn't have. Thanks very much for all your work.
