"George Nail and his mother, Clarissa Agnes Keefer Nail, established "Nail's Restaurant" in 1908. It was located in the Wilson block on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Main Street in Clarion, PA. George's son-in-law, Ralph Cyphert, joined in partnership in the restaurant and daughter, Bessanna Nail Cyphert, continued to operate the restaurant until 1950. The "Clarion Restaurant" succeeded Nail's restaurant in the same place."
