  • Notes  Married:
    • According to family history, Jewel eloped with a pharmacist named Walter Milton and Euzema got in the car and went after her in another county. The marriage was very short-lived. Jewel went to Reno, alone, to obtain a divorce and while there, the boarding house where she was staying burned to the ground.
