Alice French (March 19, 1850 – January 9, 1934), better known as Octave Thanet, was an American novelist and short fiction writer. By 1890, she had been settled in her comfortable life-long partnership with Jane Allen Crawford (1851 – October 17, 1932) for close to a decade, dividing their year between their home in Davenport, Iowa, and their plantation in Arkansas. The two women shared their lives, except for Jane's four-year marriage (the ending of which is mysterious) and Jane's European tour.
Alice and Jane are both buried at Oakdale Memorial Gardens, Davenport, Scott County, Iowa, USA, in the French family plot, section 1, Lot 13.
