    Family 2  Nannie Claires,   b. Est 1868,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married  Between 9 Aug 1927 and 12 May 1935 
    • A second wife is listed on Euzema's death certificate (Nannie Chaires), in his obituary (Nannie Claires) and in his will (Nannie C). According to Euzema's will, she was declared legally insane at some point before his death, and was moved to a mental facility in Florida. No marriage certificate has been located for Euzema and Nannie in Decatur County or all of Florida. It is also not known when or where she died. The records at the Chattahoochee Mental Health facility do not go that far back. A memorial article for Menla Powell Rich, Euzema's first wife indicated that he was already married by 12 May 1935.
