  • Notes 
    • The Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy entry for her mentions her marriage to Liverius ("Levvineus") De Graff, but doesn't include Neltje among her listed children.

      Following her husband's death in Chicago in 1869, she shows in the 1870 census as still in Chicago, but according to the 1880 census, she was back in New York City by then, along with her by-then 15-year-old daughter Neltje.

      The 27 Jul 1899 Brooklyn Eagle obituary for her mother indicates that Alice lived at that time at 87th Street and Third Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
