Frances Feather is my maternal grandmother, and i am currently working on the Feather/Tweedie lines. I have found an Alice Feather, who married Ernest James Newman 1908. On Ernest' army record he describes himself as Widowed (although the original entry, crossed out - states married.Archives have a probate record for an Alice Feather aka Newman dated 1923. Any ideas as i can't locate a birth for this Alice, even though a death notice states she is the youngest daughter of the late James and Elizabeth Feather.

Any thoughts?

thanks.
