In the County of Wicklow, Ireland, on October 6, 1817, Alice Twamley was born. She was the second oldest of ten children. She received her baptism and was confirmed in the Episcopal church in Shillelegh, Ireland. On February 10, 1836, Alice m. her cousin in 1836 (Ossory Diocese), Peter Twamley (b. 1811). That same year, Alice and Peter came to America and settled near Chelsea, Michigan. Alice and Peter had three children, Bessie born in 1837, Sarah born in 1839 and Thomas born in 1841. In 1842, Peter died leaving Alice with three small children to support.
It was in 1843 that Alice moved her children to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and there started a small business in the millinery line to maintain herself and babies. In the years that followed, Alice found herself facing complete financial ruin not once but several times. After each disaster, she came back stronger and bigger than before.
Mrs. Twamley was survived by her daughter, Miss Bessie Twamley, one brother, Rev. James Twamley of Bedford, England, a niece, Miss Alyce M. Twamley and a nephew she treated as a son, he having been a member of her household all his life, Fred A. Twamley."
