These three photos of Alice Corinne Stewart were found in the files of Marguerite Cook Clark. Marguerite Cook Clark's mother, Mary Marguerite "Maggie" Martin Cook, labeled these photos. Maggie and Corinne were both born in 1887 and were first cousins.
Alice Corinne was the daughter of Sarah Catherine Watts and Elastus Stewart. She was a granddaughter of Catharine Amanda Bryan Watts, sister to my great-grandfather, Terrell Bryan and Marguerite Cook Clark's great-grandfather, Joseph Bryan. Catharine Amanda, Terrell, and Joseph are all children of Reddick Bryan and Elizabeth Regan.
There was little documented information about Alice Corinne in trees at Ancestry and FamilySearch. However, I am persistent and after three nights of searching found a very sad story.

The Bienville Democrat
Arcadia, Louisiana 05 May 1921
In May of 1921, Alice Corinne, Augustus, their son, and infant babies (twins) visited Mr. and Mrs. George R. Boone in Bienville Parish. It appears that they may have stayed in Louisiana as on July 18, 1921, Alice Corinne died in a sanitarium in Shreveport after an appendectomy. It was reported that her twin babies died after nursing as they became infected as well. Her burial place is unknown.
