There are several possibilities for a George and Alice Newsome in AL and GA.  It would be easier for someone to help if you included any of the following that you might know of:

Dates or approximate dates of b, m, d?  Could be 1750 or 1940!!!

Names of any children?

Names of Alices' parents or her  siblings?

Any of these details might help locate the correct couple and timeframe.

Alice L. had 2 sisters, Fannie and Janie, and a brother George. Do not know if he was a Junior or not . Thank you for any help, Jay

I found Alice living with her parents, children and sister Fannie in 1930 census in GA.  She is already divorced by then.  Didn't find any 1920 census with Alice/Hettie/Gladys - or their birth records. Sorry.

There is a WWI draft registration for George Newsome married with 2 children in Gibson, GA - but spouses name is not given.
