Looking to Learn About Little Liz
I found your magazine from an online search for info on the “Little Liz” gas engine.
John Henry Birch, one of the proprietors, was my maternal great-grandfather. My interest is in finding someone who has one of these engines in the hopes that I can share some information that I have inherited from my grandmother, Marcella Birch Toth, about her father, John Henry Birch, one of the cousins that patented the engine.
I have included a picture of John Henry Birch and John Hays Birch with the engine, as well as a brochure advertising the engine.
Hopefully someone with one of these engines will see this and contact me.
