The book inscription that is shown in the 2007 photo above is in a book that belongs to a descendant of Allen Lester Korns of Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA. The book was used to record births and deaths of Somerset County individuals, and their relatives. The records were apparently maintained by Mrs. Allen Korns, and then after her death, the records have been expanded by one of her daughters-in-law.
The inscription reads "Presented to Allen Korns for regular and punctual attendance, excellent deportment and scholarship for term of 1911 '12 by John D. Liebau, Teacher." Since Allen Lester Korns (son of John Wilson Korns) was born Nov. 7, 1904, this book was probably presented to him in second or third grade.
