Winnie A. (Kaiser) Yearnd Scrapbook, page 15

Page fifteen contains Aunt Jane photographs. Aunt Jane was Margaret Jane Yearnd. She once told us a story of being sent home with a note from the teacher, early in her first year of school. The teacher said there were too many girls named Margaret in the class, and she would be known as Jane. Interestingly, on the 1910 census, the year of her birth, she is Margaret, and on the 1920 census, she is Jane. It stuck!

Here is Jane:
