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 photographing my Dad's grave at Highland Cemetery in Brooklyn Michigan. My husband and I have walked the cemetery twice and cannot find the tombstone. The church, city hall, county have not been able to help me and I don't have a call back from the sexton.

Would you have a record of where you saw this grave at Highland?

Thank you for your help. And thank you for doing this find work.

Re: Anna & Ida Thode
Thank you so much for not only finding information on my great-aunts, but also taking the time to make a memorial. I was so excited I drove to the cemetery, but the office was closed, and not sure where to look. Thanks again, I now only need 2 or 3 more great-aunts and great-uncle to complete 1 generation. :)

I wish there was a way to know if a person has a headstone or not. I'm sorry about asking for a photo request and there was nothing to be found. Thank you for trying and I really appreciate the help you've given me.

Thanks, Deb, for checking. it is odd that her first husband, Herbert Schlenker would have a marker in that cemetery but she does not.
Thanks for all you you to remember those who have passed. Your Find A Grave photos and information have been extremely helpful in building my family tree on Ancestry, Jeannieology.
