UPDATE: Deborah Picard writes: "Upon doing some family history research last night, I came across this website. I showed this webpage [Berlin School] to my father today and he would like to pass along a message regarding the second photo: 'I have viewed the photos of the Berlin, NY school children. The boy on the end of the front row in the second photo is either my father, Otto Eugene Picard, or my uncle, Richard Waldemar Picard. They lived with their parents Richard and Lena for one year in Berlin, NY (approximately 1907). My father told me that was the happiest year of his childhood. Mother Lena died of pneumonia while living in Berlin and is supposedly buried in Petersburg, NY; however, my family could never locate the grave. Shortly thereafter, I believe the widowed father and two sons moved from the area.'"
