Does the name J.C. Fleming ring any bells? He was the informant on Eugenia's death record. Maybe a son-in-law?

You probably know the names of the children of John and Eugenia, you can look for their death records, watch for names of informants, track them down, they might still be living. Or, maybe one of the regular browsers on this forum with access to other records can help you.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
