"Daisy Morrow and first man"

This photograph was found in Ma Davis's trunk, and on the back is written "Daisy Morrow and first man." I don't know which woman in the photo is Daisy Morrow or who the other people are. Daisy was Pa Davis's first cousin. Her father Tobe was brother to Annalizer Morrow Davis, the mother of James Kelly Davis (Pa).

I found the following obituary abstract online at the Itawamba genforum site:

"Mrs. Daisy Greenslade of Kaufman, Texas, died Jan. 19, 1972 in the Baylor University Hospital in Dallas, Texas. She was 54. She is remembered as the former Miss Daisy Morrow. Funeral services were held in Kaufman."

The writing on the back of the photograph is puzzling. What does it mean "first man" - did Daisy have an earlier marriage?

Daisy was married to Milton Greenslade. Her death certificate indicates that she died of viral pneumonia and was buried in Kaufman Cemetery. She was born November 21, 1918 in Itawamba County.
