Bertha Pierce Student Information Card

Student information card of Bertha Pierce, a member of the Seneca Nation. This card indicates she entered the school on November 13, 1895 and departed on February 1, 1899, however those dates do not match up with those in her student file. The dates do not match those of Edith Pierce either (whose name is crossed out here). Bertha did graduate in 1900 and did marry Edwin Smith, so that information is correct, but the other part of the card has yet to be figured out.
