A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alice ...
Although we found mention of Alice during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alice was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alice was located in Nueces County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alice to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alice - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alice, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alice might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Alice would be found within the (361) area code.
Adding Alice to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
That's the case with Alice: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
We also found Alice on a Road Map for Texas (from Shell Oil, 1956).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Alice on our Genealogy Page.
