Alice Isabel was born in 1855 in Watertown, Massachusetts, the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Bonney) Norcross. She certainly grew up in Watertown, the second of 4 children.[1] She attended local schools and graduated from the Watertown High School.

Alice became a teacher by 1880, when her occupation is given as "school teacher" in the 1880 census.[2] In 1885, she was hired by the city of Somerville, Massachusetts, as a teacher in the Pope School.[3] She worked there for many years, while residing in her hometown of Watertown.[4]

In 1891, she applied for a passport. She was described as being 36 years old, 5 feet, 5 and a half inches tall, with brown eyes, brown hair and a dark complexion.[5] She and her sister also traveled to England in 1912, arriving home via Ellis Island in New York.[6]

She remained as a 6th grade teacher at the Pope School as late as 1921.[7]

She died in 1932.[8] She is buried at the Newton Cemetery in Newton, Massachusetts. [9]
