On September 29, 1896 he married Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bingaman. Together Clarence and Lizzie were the parents of four children: Mildred, Lucille, Gladys, and John Nevin."

  1. A lot of unused background on this one; still the photo is striking.

    The publisher of that local history newsletter probably knows a descendent.

    3. Thank you for preserving and sharing the photograph of Elizabeth “Lizzie” Burd. Since it has been some time since I wrote the article I had to go back to my December 2009 issue so I could familiarize myself with the Burd family of Swengel, PA. Your website is such a treasure, and what you are doing by preserving these old photographs is such a great gift. Oftentimes I see box lots of old family photographs being sold at public auctions as they have no interest to the younger generation. It is so unfortunate.
      Lizzie Burd had four children, and I think that some of her grandchildren might still live in Union County, PA. Perhaps they would be interested in seeing a photograph of their grandmother when she was young. Keep up the good work, and if I can locate any of Lizzie’s descendants I will point them toward your website.
