I am writing in regards of John May. My Grandfather was named John May and was from Kentucky. He died over a year ago. I am not sure what county or whatnot. Was never really that close. Thought I would give it a try. Get back to me if possible curious. Thanks Michael May

My great grandfather's name was John May
(born in 1880s) and owned a barbershop
in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He had 3 sons
(legitimate twin boys--one named John May who
died in '89) and 1 illegimate son (age would
place him in his 70s-80s and whereabouts
unknown but may have been named John May).

You might try the Salyersville KY area. There are Mays in my family and they are from that area, possible Lakeville, KY. If your grandfather is from that area, there could be connections with the surnames Power and Fairchild. Good luck.

I am sure this will not help you in your search but I am interested in the name.

Mine is john alfred may

My brother was Christopher James
My father was Alfred James
His father was James
His father had five brothers whose names
are all unknown to me

They are all gone now

We are all from the county of kent in England and I live in Vancouver Canada
I am sure you know where the name MAY comes from but I would be interested in comparisions as to origin

My research finds the following

1st recorded name of May in England is about 1350..He was the Bishop of the City of Ely

the name may have Jewish or eastern european
origins( an abbreviation of MAYER etc.)

It may also be abbreviated from the french
MAY(HEW) or old french for Matthew
There were many Huguenots who fled France in the 1600s due to religious persecution and they settled in England.Many also settled in North America where they founded New Rochelle
in New York.
We also have a Coat of Arms - do you have a copy ?

It would be nice to hear from you and sorry I can not help you with your search

regards
John Alfred May
West Vancouver Canada
