Rose or Alma Newcomb

Charles Dwight Newcomb (b. 1861) married Ida Holbrook (b. Jul 1868) in 1885 (they eventually divorced). They had four daughters. According to B.M. Newcomb, the oldest was named Rose. But an examination of the census records indicates that her name was Alma, and that her husband's name was Rose (or possibly Ross) Williams.
