Alice Wright's maiden name needs verification. Family trees indicate it was May, however list her parents as Wm. Wright and Priscilla Carpenter. Was May her middle name?
Dates are merely copied from family trees and need to be verified.
She first married Peter Wright. After his death she remarried, to Richard Crabb.
She appears in early Oyster Bay records.
"Alice Crab owned a large quantity of land in Oyster Bay, as disclosed by the Town, and other records, receiving the major part thereof by the devise from Anthony Wright, and by purchase.
At her death she was probably one of, if not the wealthiest woman and largest land owner in the town. She was very generous to her children, and other relatives, and the Town Records are full of deeds made by her to them. From a study of these records it is quite apparent that Alice Crab was a very superior business woman, and an early forerunner of many of the women of the present day."
