Elizabeth Carter was born August 28, 1895 at "Sweet Home," the Carter family residence. She was the daughter of George R., 2nd Territorial Governor of Hawaii, and Helen Strong Carter, daughter of Eastman Kodak president Henry A Strong. George Carter was a decendant of the missionary family Judd on his mother's side.

Elizabeth Carter was a founder of the Junior League of Honolulu. She lobbied for the preservation of Queen Emma Summer Palace in Honolulu and Hulihee Palace in Kailua Kona.

Her husband Washington Everardus Bogardus (b. Brooklyn NY Jan 1, 1896) was a real estate salesman in 1920 Honolulu, who eventually became a prominent banker with Bishop & Co. They were married Oct. 20, 1917 in New York City. He had attended the same boys school as David Kalakaua, which may be what spurred him to move to Hawaii.

His parents were Washington A.H. Bogardus and Mary Pauline Couch of New York. He married a second time, to Marise Blair in October 1931, and died Christmas Eve the same year in New York. He is buried in the Bogardus family plot at Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, NY. He descended from famed Dutch immigrant, the Reverend Everardus Bogardus (1607-1647), minister of the Dutch Reformed Church of New Amsterdam, who arrived in what we now call New York in 1633.
