Jim, I am trying to find info on my MAY family in Jay Co.,IN. William May, born 1820, married Mary Ann Cooley. William is said to be the son of Charles and Mary MAY. They were of German descent, and came to Indiana from the VA or PA area.Family history says the May surname may have been shortened from some other name (Mayes, Mayhugh, etc.). William and Mary Cooley May had at least two children, Eliza Ann May(md. a John Cook Hester) and James Elsworth May. Do these names fit in with your May family anywhere? Thanks!
