Notes:  Alter's youngest son was said to be a boy genius by the age of two.  He died shortly before Diane was born, so she was blamed for his death.  Her family never forgave her for it and distanced themselves from her.  Her sister, Francis, kept in contact with her, and Francis' son, Seymour, stayed close to her until she died in 2003.
