Daughter of John May, Jr. [1781-1849]
Granddaughter of John May
The place of Rebecca's birth
is not confirmed since it appears that her parents moved to Floyd
County in 1816 or 17 and the exact date of her birth isn't known.
At the age of fifteen she was afflicted with measles and became
totally blind. In 1847 her brothers took her along with them
when they went on their overland journey to Oregon. She died
in the home of her brother Jeptha in 1878.
