I admire old portraits; people got dressed up and behaved themselves. I found this old mounted portrait in my Grandmother Helen’s papers. The back of the picture listed the people as “Dad, Grandma, Tilly, and Leone.” The man is Gilbert Nelson Burdick, 1858-1935. Gilbert was Helen’s father and one of my great-grandfathers. The young woman in the back must be Tilly. I have no idea who Tilly was. The older woman in black must be Eliza Jane Gilbert 1840-1915. Eliza was the wife of Augustus A. Burdick. At first, I thought this was unlikely as she does not look old enough but then I checked Eliza’s birth date: she was twenty-four when Augustus was killed. Augustus was nine years older. Eliza died in 1915 so this was taken a few years before her death. She must be in her seventies here. The child in the picture, Leone, was born in 1910. She looks about four years old here so this portrait was made around 1914. Leone latter composed a brief family history that I have been using to disambiguate these old pictures. Thank you, Leone.
