Could Alice's bank balance have come from life insurance policies from both parents, or other older relatives? It seems unlikely, given the number of siblings, that she had that much as her share even from both parents, but she wasn't old enough to have earned a small fortune, which is what that approximated at that time.

The problem of her husband Rex Gavitte is a different sort of question and might explain the use of her mother's maiden name as her pro tempore surname, but Bix likely knew her by her married name, at least initially. So that's another mystery.
