    There were two different record of marriage (or licenses issued, as reported in the index records).  In March 1936, a marriage license was issued to Julius and Myrtle in Pulaski County, Arkansas.

    A genealogy by J Fletcher reports that Myrtle "died of cancer with young children yet to raise" at age 36 on 29 Aug 1950 in Arkansas.

    This date of death is 4 years after Julius mrried his second wife, widow Stella Gossom Powell.  But I have found no record of a divorce.  The situation is not clear.
