    My condolences on the death of Susan. Her mother was Lizzie LUCIUS-CLINE, the sister of my grandfather Perry LUCIUS. I guess the means Lizzie was my great-aunt and Susan would have been my cousin. I have been doing the LUCIUS tree but have had a hard time finding much on Lizzie. I am particularly looking for a picture of her. Would any of you be able to contact me for more information on Lizzie. I have the rest of the LUCIUS family researched. If you see this could you contact me, please
