Descendants of Hans Peter Meÿ
Anna Maria May [1750-    ]
Generations:  Seven - Twelve
Daughter of Leonard May [1719-1777]


Anna Maria May was the first child born to the immigrant May family after their arrival in America in 1748. A marriage of Anna Maria to John Patrick Lydick was reported to me in March 2000 by a Lydick descendant, Jim Learn. He was my source for the following tree. Other sources for the Lydick family are being contacted to see if we can prove this is Anna Maria May, daughter of Johann Leonhardt Meÿ. My last record of her was when she completed her catechumens in the First Reformed Church in Lancaster, PA in 1766.

Descendants of John Lydick and his wife, Anna Maria (Mary) May, are posted on the internet. The date of their marriage is said to be about 1766 in York Co., PA and their first child was born in 1767. John's given name was Johannes and he most likely didn't have a middle name.

I won't add names from the Lydick source to the following listing until there are some assurance we have found "our" Anna Maria May.
