Two reasons I think Elizabeth A. is Alice.  one, Elizabeth A.  Two, the research of Straub Aunkst names the wife of John McKean as Alice Elizabeth Arney.  Alice's death certificate lists her father as John Arney & her mother as unknown..  but I'm trusting the census over that info.  (John Elias?  Elias John?  Possible)
