|Bio and Links|
I live in Newton, Iowa and will be happy to locate and photograph markers in my area.|
I retired from the Air Force August 1 2009 after 26 years of service as a Master Sergeant. I am also a member of the Rapid City, South Dakota Masonic Lodge #25 and the NAJA Shriners.
Photography is my hobby/passion. I will try to fulfill as many requests as possible with quality photos. I enhance all photos to provide the best quality I can.
I trim grass covering markers and sweep off debris to enable a clear view of the marker. I photograph the entire marker as well as a close up of the name inscription. Past experience I have learned people like to see the entire marker and not just a close up of the inscription. I also photograph the back of the marker if there is any inscription on the back.
I NEVER rub chalk or other substances on markers. Chalk will DAMAGE a marker and speed the deterioration of the stone. I use a foil technique that uses aluminum foil to enhance the inscription. This technique does not damage markers and actually works better than chalk.
I can e-mail the full size photos upon request.
I recently became a member of the Jasper County, Iowa Cemetery Commission.
I am interested in my family genealogy surnames of Bickle, Baker, Hoy, Kintz, Plumb, Rinard, Bladwin and several others.
I have entered memorial pages for all

|Suzy B||Re: Ivan Ford|
Hi Rickie, Thanks for adding the info on Ivan S. Ford. He was the older brother of my grandmothers' grandmother.
I read your bio & thought you might want to look for & add Ivan S Ford's Father to findagrave. He was John E. Ford who was also in the civil war with Iowa Infantry, He was a Captain & a Chaplain. He died August 2,1864 from illness due to his war injuries & was buried in Winterset Cemetery, Madison, Iowa. There is a picture of his grave on the Iowa Gravestone photo project site but I can't find him on findagrave. Peace, Suzy B
