Unknown Toluca School Photo - Possibly Bennington Township

Contributed by Rick Elgin

Rick writes " I have an old school picture of what I believe is from Toluca. Maybe from about 1919 or so. Only one name appears on the pic. I only know of one person in the pic, which is my grandmother. I didn't know if you might want to put on your site. Maybe others could ID the other people in the picture. I did a search in the 1920 census. I found a Bert Feilds that lived in Bennington Twnsp. who is the right age. I am fairly confident that it is Toluca. My grandmother was Lena P.(Stratton) Wink-Sebastian. She is on the far left of the pic in the middle with the blond hair and black bow. Her brother and sisters may be in the pic as well, however, I can not pic them out. I cannot find my g.grandparents in Toluca in the 1920 census, they are listed in KS. So, this is prior to 1920. There is nothing on the back of the pic except my grandmothers name and Toluca, IL. If I was to guess, the girl with AD over her head could be Angelia Dentino, daughter of Thomas Dentino."
