Alice Pond1

b. circa 1855
  • Alice Pond and Alice Whitlock may be one and the same The key to the problem of the two Alices who married William Ansley Brewer lies in discovering the true date of birth of Hiram Dow Brewer. If it is discovered that he was born in 1875, then the Alices are two seperate individuals, if born in 1881, then they must be one and the same.

Content of the interview was related to Chris Chester, by Paul Brewer via e-mail dated 20 Dec 2008. "I talked with a Mrs. Lorna (Estey) Estey, whose mother was a good friend of Bessie Brewer Stewart. She confirmed what we suspected. When Ensley Brewer's wife left him, Bessie was raised by the Stewart family. She married Daniel Estey and had a large family. They lived on the Banks Road in Durham, and later at Taymouth. She gave me the names of the children and I will follow up on that. One daughter is living in Marysville. She also told me that it was her great-grandfather, Arthur O'Neill that ran off with Ensley's wife. She said that it was something that was never talked about. Apparently when they got to Maine she left Arthur and he came home "with his tail between his legs." He lived separately in another house for a while but eventually moved back home. Lorna was not sure if her name was Alice Pond or Alice Whitlock."
