Love these school pictures. "Diane Matine" must be Lillian Diana Martin, dau. of Edward K. and Lura E. (Swett) Martin, b. 8 Dec. 1911 in So. Paris, d. 6 May 2004 in Brunswick. She married Murray Ring and later Daniel Forsyth. She was living in Woodstock in 1920 with her mother and stepfather Ernest Day (they were enumerated right after your ancestors Prentiss and Augusta Thomas).

Thanks for the catch, Chris. I had some trouble reading all my great-grandmother's writing. Wasn't 100% on the spelling of Yondervia DeVee, Hilding Gustasson and noticed my own typo, Arnie Coffin should read Annie Coffin.

"Yondervia" must have been Yerda Elizabeth Davee, daughter of Fred G. and Caroline (Packard) Davee of Woodstock, b. 6 Dec. 1911, d. 9 Aug. 2001. She married Charles Peter.

Small correction -- Lillian Diana Martin's father was Edwin (not Edward) Kimball Martin.  She, throughout life, was known to friends and relatives as Diana, although some records list her as Lillian D.

Thanks, Troy, for the great picture.

Yes, it was Edwin.
