I am researching my ggg-grandfather and related
of Murray Co., Ga. William MAY was born abt. 1823 in Tennessee. He
with his family to Murray Co were on August 10, 1842 he married Nancy
the daughter of Joseph & Elizabeth MEREDITH of N.C. This union
3 children Nathan Lafayette MAY b. August 8, 1843, Joseph MAY b. May
& Elizabeth MAY b. May 1848. Nancy MEREDITH MAY died between
in Murray County. William MAY married again in Murray County on January
26, 1851 to Barbery N. BATES. This union produced 2 offspring Ann MAY
1852, & John MAY b. 1855. By 1860 the family had migrated North a
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
