Eugenia Brooks Muse is mentioned in a Turner LWT as grandchild of Andrew

  Notes for JAMES ME. MUSE:
Though his middle initial appears as "Me" on some records, he was very
likely named James Madison Muse following the admittedly twisted logic
that since he was close to his older brother Berry Grove Muse, frequently
moving together from place to place, and Grove named his eldest son James
Madison Muse it was after his brother.
