Alice and William had six children; three daughters Marie, Alice and Dorothy (Dan's mother) and three sons; William, Edward (Ed's father) and John (called Jack).
When her husband died in 1939, Alice was left with six children, ages 20 to 9 and little means of support. Everyone went to work to support the family and try to keep the younger boys in school. It must have been a difficult time.
Thank you Dan, we feel so lucky to have the photos.
