  • Notes 
    • NAME: According to Jay Strong, a descendant of Alice Fish, the parish register where Alice's birth and christening is noted lists her name as "Alice Fish" with mother "Jane Fish", and no father shown. Alice's mother, Jane Fish, married Edmund Bury 6 years after Alice's birth. There is no evidence that Alice assumed her step-father's name of "Bury." At the time of her marriage to William Walsh, the British Vital Records lists her maiden name as "Alice Fish." The temple worker listed "Berry" (Wilch) as her name on her endowment card as noted in the sources and below. This information was presumably given by Alice. However, she was sealed to William Walsh as "Alice Fish."

      Alice gives her father's name as "John Stark Berry" and her mother's name as "Jane" on the date of her sealing for eternity to William Walsh and marriage for time to Jacob Strong in the Endowment House. She was, however, sealed as Alice Fish. The source for this is the Temple Records Index Bureau, Endowment House Records, No. 2911, Book B, pg. 119.

      BIRTHDATE: Alice's birthdate is listed as both "11 April 1831" and the "16 April 1831" in the Endowment House Records cited under !NAME. It is presumed this information was given by her and recorded by a temple worker. Family records, however, note her birthdate as 16 April 1829.

      SEALING TO PARENTS: According to Harriet Strong Speirs (as noted on a group sheet she prepared for William Walsh and Alice Fish), Alice Strong Egbert, a granddaughter of Alice Fish Bury Walsh through her son, William Jacob Strong, told Harriet that her grandmother, Alice Fish Walsh Strong had her mother, Jane, sealed to Edmund Bury.

      ORDINANCES: The family group record prepared by John Anderegg, professional researcher, notes her baptismal date as "3 Nov 1805." This would not be possible as she was not yet born. Proxy ordinances were performed for Alice in the Provo Temple on the following dates: Baptism--10 Oct 1978; Endowment--8 Dec 1978. The source is IGI v5.0, from extracted birth and christening records submitted for temple ordinances. Precise details on the source are listed under "sources" for Alice's birth/christening.
