    Not sure if it loaded, or if this is even the right place to post. If it did, and someone wants to try and make the photo better, please do.

    Got a scan higher than 960 pixels wide ???
    A quick pass .... I tried to reduce the half tone printing Pixelation ...
    then converted to B/W and some minor picture fixes.

    actually this was posted on a facebook page, but have relatives in it. The photo they posted there was from a newspaper.

    The photo (scan) to the newspaper had to come from someone ??
    It would help to have the original.

    The text says the photo is owned by Fletcher Underwood who is in the picture.
    This would make him well over 100 years old by now, and if it were me, I'd suspect one of his descendants.

    Here's the latest, I've removed some other minor distractions, But not much I can do to improve the detail in picture.
    Is there anything else I can do to the picture ??

    I kinda just glanced over the details. Fletcher was my great uncle. My grandfather is center back row, Edgar. He himself would now be 124 yrs old! And I'm only 47!
    Fletcher had 2 children, probably did come from one of them. I'll have to get with em.
    Thanks for your help and time. (y)
