Alice was daughter of Sen. & Mrs. William Moore Gray of Ord (Mira Valley, 8 miles south of Ord). And wife of Oliver P. R. "Ollie" Bell of Mira Valley, but later of Hastings, NE.
Alice was medium height and weight. She had hair that had a trace of auburn coloring in it, but it was otherwise dark. She often had long hair. At one time she could sit on her hair, it was so long. She was graduated from the North Loup, Nebraska high school in the Class of 1897, one of 16 graduates that year, one of whom was Alice's first cousin Louise M. Petty.
Alice and Ollie were married at her mother's home in Mira Valley, south of Ord, Nebraska at 8:00 PM on April 3, 1906. The wedding was performed by George A. Ray of St. Paul, Nebraska, who traveled by train from St. Paul to Mira Valley.
Alice was somewhat severely religious. Some of the Nurse's College classmates of Alice's daughter Jane used to tell that when they would go with Jane to Alice's home in Hastings, Nebraska, Alice would require all of the young women to kneel on the living room floor, with their elbows on living room chairs and pray for awhile. As they told that story years later they were respectfully amused at the oddity and rigor of it; but because of that that friend said that Jane's nursing student friends did not like to go to Jane's mother's house.
