The May Family Of Tennessee

     My branch of the May family, originally from England, came to Tennessee from Virginia around 1800. My ancestors began moving to Ohio from Lawrence County Tennessee in the mid 1920's. They moved to Stark County and Shelby County.

       Others who moved to Ohio from the Lawrence county, Tennessee area around the same time include the Martin, Clayton, Leighton, Foster, Trapp, and Gunnell families.

Dear Anon Cousin. Thanks for your gift. Please email me. I would like to know how we are related and I have a few questions.

This website begins with the family history of Alvin Rye May (MAY 106) born in Lawrence County Tennessee in 1914. His line is traced back to James May (MAY 100) born in 1731, who was born British Colonial  Virginia. This website was started on March 7, 2019. I will be adding information regularly. While most family members I talked to believe the May name to be German according to WikiTree my May family actually came To British Colonial Virginia from London England. My Great Aunt Marie May Smith (MAY 104-09) believed our family came from England in the 1600 and was originally Mayes. She did believe the Mayes were of German descent.         Read More
