Bascom May (1867-1958)
This is a photo of Bascom May (1867-1958), son of Samuel May (1820-1904) and Mary Osborn May. This `Second Samuel May` was the brother of William James May and the son of Thomas May, brother of the builder of the May House. Bascom and his wife, Anna Mayo May (1869-1953), lived for many years in the so-called `Weaning House` at the mouth of Mays Branch. Bascom made his living with his dairy operation, and his milk wagon was a familiar sight in Prestonsburg. The Weaning House is still standing. Today it is the property of the widow of the late Snow White, Hagar White. (Photo courtesy of Jean Burke of Prestonsburg.)
