Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Alice's last name is often given as Wellsmith or Wilsmith. However some genealogists have indicated this is based on false information and there is no evidence for either name.

Alice may have been born 16 Jan 1632 in Worcestershire, England, and probably died in Springfield, Chester County, Province of Pennsylvania. She and George may have married in 1659 in Worcestershire, England.
