Soledad Alicia "Alice" Machado Osborne
Birth: Oct. 29, 1856, Cuba
Death: Sep. 15, 1917
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

Alice was born in Cuba on October 29, 1856, very likely in Puerto Principe, the family's winter residence at number 12 Santo Ramon Street. All through her young childhood on her father's cattle ranch in Camaguey, she enjoyed the ease and beauty of upper-class life in Cuba. Alice was only eleven when the family fled Cuba returning to live in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts. By age fifteen, she and her family were living in Salem, Massachusetts.

At age 21 Alice became engaged to Theodore Moody Osborne and married him four years later on Oct. 19, 1882. The wedding received the following write up in the Beverly Citizen of October 21, 1882:

"The South Church at Salem was the scene of a large and fashionable gathering Thursday afternoon, upon the occasion of the marriage of Theodore M. Osborne, Esq., of Peabody to Miss Alice Machado of Salem. Rev. E. S. Atwood of Salem was the officiating clergyman. The Church was nicely decorated with evergreen and autumn leaves. The company present included many gentlemen of the legal profession an their wives. The ceremonies were smoothly executed and all present were impressed with the excellence of the arrangements. The couple started upon a wedding trip, which includes the Canadas."

Alice and Theodore rented a house at 5 Carpenter Street, which was directly across the street from her parents' house at number 6. Thus her youngest sister Juanita was able to help with Alice's two children when and after they were born.

Later, after Theodore's death in 1899, Alice and her children moved to Newton, Mass., and then later to Cambridge, Mass. when her son Maurice attended Harvard. To supplement her income she taught drawing and painting.
