Birth: Aug. 6, 1890
Jersey County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jun. 22, 1954
Alfalfa County
Oklahoma, USA

Daughter of Charles A Poor and Henrietta (Murphy). She was born in Jerseyville, IL. On June 21, 1910 she and Andrew Jackson Brown wed in Galesburg, IL. They were living with his brother Lynn Brown. This was for a short time and later moved back to Jerseyville were they lived and had their children. Alice was the mother of Ramona Latona; Helen Lucretia; Dorothy; Alice Lola; Buster Bruce; and Andrew Jackson. Her father Charles had become sick with TB and had to go to a hospital in Kansas City Mo. He later died there and was buried behind the hospital. Alice's mother Henrietta Murphy Poor moved to Cherokee Ok. I was told that Alice's grandmother Mary Hand Murphy was there and sick and that is why Henrietta left Illinois. However, Henrietta's husband Charles did not die until 1935. So unsure as to when Henrietta move to OK. Alice left her husband and took the six children about 1928 and moved to Cherokee. Alice was unable to care for the children and placed them in the Western Oklahoma Orphanage for White Children in Helena, OK. Aunt Alice Sanborn told me that her mother Alice would visit often, every week and there were times the kids would go home for the weekend. Aunt Alice Sanborn also said that it wasn't so bad after she got use to it. But my dad Buster hated it and ran away often. She worked in the kitchen and as they kept the boys and girls separated she only saw Buster and Andrew "Andy" at meal times. Aunt Alice also told me that older sister Ramona was married and did not go to the orphanage, but thought sister Helen was put into and indentured contract to a man with two children and she was to take care of the children and the home until she became 18 years old and she was free from the contract. How long she worked for the family is unknown. Alice Brown was found later in the 1940 census says she is divorced, has last name of Wakefield. On her headstone is Brown.
