    maybe it's not a high school at all but the Junior National Honor Society. strange they'd make a big deal of that and make a ring for it.

    St. John Neumann HS was founded in 1980.

    ... That's the one in Naples FL.

    The John Neumann Regional Academy HS in Williamsport PA has been there for 130 years.

    Any chance the red hair is colored from the elements? For example there are 'bog bodies ' in Ireland of people that are completely preserved from hundreds upon hundreds of years ago but their skin is tanned and hair red because of the chemical makeup in the peat. Just throwing it out there.

    Everything is MOO and I am always willing to be wrong!

    Wow. Good Job. Jim Ned HS consolidated in 1957...before it was 31 small schools.

    The only other thing I could think was perhaps...It was some strange popular ring design...where certain things were "backwards". If that was the case...NJ...New Jersey High School. Class of 1971? I can imagine a strange fad of mirror like or reverse images. I guess...if we could see the pictures reaslly well on the ring...to see if it is dated. But...the lettering on it looks pretty dated...1917 seems about right.

    it is possible there was a smaller HS called Jim Ned before they consolidated but they would have been tiny schools.

    the N might stand for North so any town back in 1917 that had a north and south HS could be in the running.

    National Honor society was established in 1921. JNHS was started in 1929...

    The only thing I could think of with the ring was perhaps it was a momento or something taken by the fugitive she was with. It is possible they were engaging in petty theft or home robbery to get money. So...the ring could be a item stolen. Perhaps, she wore it in a wedding ring fashion to make them seem like a married couple...

    This might be it - the description at the Namus profile says this:

    The letters are J H N S or J N H S


    so it could be the Johns Hopkins Nursing School or Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (depending on how one reads the fancy letters)

    if I am not mistaken, here is the class of 1917 from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. the women are named but I have no idea what order they appear:

    ETA: trying to fix the link

    once you view the picture it says it is the property of Johns Hopkins Medical Archives so I don't want any problems posting the link.

    There is not anyone in that group with the initials ILN (i.e., the initials engraved on the side of the ring).

    It may be that 1917 is the year the school (or organization) was founded, and not the grad year of its original owner.

    I was able to trace three of the phone numbers on the phone bill.

    * The 215 945 0131 belonged to a J--- A------ who lived on 7500 Knights Road in Bensalem PA in 1974. That address no longer exists. There is a chance that he obtained that number between 1970 and 1974, but he still had the same number in 1994 (and lived in Levittown at that time).

    * The 615 244 4259 belonged to a B---- D----- of Nashville TN in 1994. He was born in 1935, and lived in the area all his life up to that point.

    * The 716 834 1513 belonged to a C------ F. R--------- in 1994. He was born in 1921 and lived in the Buffalo/Tonawanda area all his life.

    It's possible that they obtained those telephone numbers between 1970 and 1994 (or in the case of JA, between 1970 and 1974), but there would be no reason to do so if they had all lived in the area the entire time.

    Looking in Ancestry, I found that BD and CFR both had younger sisters who would have been around 31 and 32 years old (respectively) in 1970. I was thinking that if the Jane Doe was calling a family member, she might be that sister listed. But I'm not sure how I would verify that at this point.

    I would hope that LE already looked into that angle.
