Ezekiel Lafayette Alexander’s wife Minnie Jordan had a sister named Maximo Jordan. Maximo married a man named George Deatherage on 11 November 1917, giving her the fearsome sounding married name of Maximo Deatherage.

Sadly, Maximo died at the age of 21 on 24 October 1918, less than a year after her marriage. She was interred at Cummings Cemetery in Maud, Oklahoma.
