Isn't it weird how things happen?

I get super focused on one thing and become blinded to what else is going on to the point my mind won't switch gears. Did not used to be that way.  Well I've been trying to work out Thomas Warren-1125 1 st wife Alice . Is she Alice Powell , is she Alice Spencer  , is she Alice Spencer Powell. Anyway there are references to lead one in a direction or another, but not valid proof. Not asking for help here , if you have an answer throw it out here.  Anyway what I'm getting to is this. I'm hunting this down and I keep running across info on Elizabeth Spencer , Alice's sister , so I'm ignoring the info about good ole Elizabeth , coz it's Alice who invited me to Wonderland and out of the corner of my eye Elizabeth grabs me. Elizabeth is the 2nd wife of Thomas and some dates are fuzzy. Elizabeth also has a first husband Robert . So I need to gather up and smooth out the fuzzy dates. I realize in ignoring Elizabeth to hunt for Alice , I have seen the dates I need to source Elizabeth and Roberts end of marriage , New marriage to Thomas and birth of her daughter.  Robert dies 1654 , Liz marries Thomas 1654 , and Liz  and Thom have daughter Elizabeth end of 1654 or beginning of 1655 . Which brings me to my next dilima. Do I even want to consider that the widow Liz was pg when she married Thom.  I am glad there is no proof I've found for that. I'm to far down this rabbit hole as it is. Funny how things go.

People have always been people, still are, and will continue to be. Lives go on, whether we can find documentation or not. Often we can't find it because it doesn't exist.

I'd suggest noting in one (or all) of the biographies that these puzzles exist, perhaps another researcher will have found the other side of the coin and all will be resolved.
