You are quite welcome.  Please let us know if you would like us to try to find Alice/Mary Ellen prior to her marriage to James.   :)  I've not been able to find her yet, but perhaps with further researching...

Sorry have not been about for a few days. That would be very kind but it seems a huge task. Have no other information that would help narrower it down.

I will take another look for Alice/Mary on Monday night or Tuesday.  I don't like to give up without exhausting all avenues.   ;)

There most likely isn't any connection, but mentioning it anyway...
Living with the Hursts in 1910 was a boarder, Sterling Bunnell.  He was age 28, born in California, father born in Connecticut, mother born in Massachusetts.  Mr. Bunnell was a doctor.

Looking at his funeral home record in 1957, it is stated that his mother was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Knowing that Mary Ellen states her parents were born in Pennsylvania (one census states they were born in Ohio and Pennsylvania), I wonder if Mary Ellen's family could have known Dr. Bunnell's family; or, perhaps she just had a boarder to help supplement her income?  :-\

 Now your asking. But very common I would have thought  for people to take in boarders --although may be a friend of the  family .
