kristin quevedo at work retouching photographs
In March 2018, a surprise volunteer posted some of our photographs that she had retouched, Kristin Quevedo. We are grateful for her extensive efforts, and also for the knowledge she has shared about the process.
Kristin studied photography and film at San Francisco State University. Here are some of the photos before and after: Details are clarified and a whole new view of the world back then opened up.

Kristin, like many others interested in Table Rock history, lives nowhere close. But like many others, she has her roots deep in the area, including not only Table Rock but also Pawnee City. She offered this little story about those roots, with the family names of FISH, JAEKE, TACKLEY, ad BOOTH.
The Civil War had ended on May 13, 1865, and the Fish family had been living in New York .Eli (born in 1796) and Mary Cross Fish (born 1803) had 10 children, but 5 died between 1842-43. In August of 1865, the year the Civil War ended, two of Eli & Mary Fish’s children married on the same day; Walker Fish married Mary Pearson, and Cornelia Susan Fish married Frank Lewis Jaeke in Wisconsin. The 2 couples both move to Pawnee.
Susan shared a four-generation photo of her family:
