He moved with his family to Murray Co were on August 10, 1842 he married Nancy MEREDITH, the daughter of Joseph & Elizabeth MEREDITH of N.C. This union produced 3 children Nathan Lafayette MAY b.

William MAY married again in Murray County on January 26, 1851 to Barbery N. BATES. This union produced 2 offspring Ann MAY b. 1852, & John MAY b. 1855. By 1860 the family had migrated North a couple of counties to Coffee County, Tennessee. I lose William and Barbery MAY from this point on. I am interested in sharing information with any one researching any of these lines. Jim J. Gray
