Lincoln School, Savanna 5th Grade 1911 - Contributed by Jim Klingler -
Jim believes that the girl immediately in front of the teacher (with the large bows) to be his mother, Helen Marie (Schneider) Klingler.
There are two students that have a clear indentation over their left shoulder made by something that was sharp but not sharp enough to puncture. The one is over the left shoulder of the student identified as his mother. The other indentation was over the left shoulder of the boy immediately above the word ROOM on the Class Sign, 4th boy back in that row. The boy might be his father, John Franklin Klingler - or might have been her "boyfriend" at the time.
