Lena Hakes taught school in Towanda as well as in Mosherville and other places. She was first cousin to my grandfather, Lee. D. Tice. Lena's parents were Leticia Tice and Willis Hakes. Lena lived from 1887 to 1939, and she married Tracy Everitt. A couple of boxes of her  postcards and photos came to me in an unusual way. Some of Lena's family had moved to Florida and apparently some of her items were with them. In 1999 a person in Florida bought the boxes of her "stuff" for $1. He contacted Phil Green who has a web page on the Everitt Family and sent the box to him. When Phil realized that Lena was cousin to my grandfather, he turned it all over to me, and no one could appreciate it more. It includes postcards to Lena from my grandfather and his siblings teasing her about her boyfriend, Tracy. It includes three of the souvenir booklets and at least two school photos with Lena as teacher. They are undated, but assumedly match with the booklets, although I can't say which  photo matches which year. I already had photos of Lena in my grandfather's collection. She is recognizable in any photo at any stage of her life from infancy on, by her unusual and distinctive eyes. The collection also includes a photo I take to be the Teacher's Institute held at Towanda as I have postcards she and Tracy exchanged about that. Tracy was also a teacher. 
I believe this to be the Bradford County Teacher's Institute about 1909. This is
part of the collection of postcards and photos that had been Lena Hakes'. Lena is
second from the right iin the second row.Just guessing, but Tracy Everett is 
probably right in front of her. I have postcards exchanged between thm about
goiing to Teacher's Institute in Towanda.
