|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

I possibly have information for this memorial. I believe I have found birth and death information. But not sure if you can use this info or if I should submit it to the Iowa Veterans Home cemetery.
Without knowing if you are in contact with this veterans home, if the home still exists, I wanted to know if you can use the info in order to give John Rodberg a birth and death date on this memorial.
If interested, I can send you the info I obtained for your discernment. Would like to see this veteran receive a more complete memorial if possible.
