Beverly Clark May (1856-1929)
Beverly Clark May, son of William James May and Cynthia Powers May, was born at the May Farm on September 28th, 1856. He inherited a portion of the original May Farm and erected a house a half mile up the road from the May House. During the 1880s he served as Floyd County Sheriff and in 1889 he married Anna Laura Auxier, daughter of Elijah Auxier. Three daughters and two sons were the issue of this marriage: Maggie, Tress, Anna Laura, Charles, and William James. Beverly owned a store in Prestonsburg, and during the 1890s he traded in timber and floated logs to Catlettsburg. A popular man with the voters, he was elected County Judge in 1913. He and his wife Anna Laura are buried in the May Cemetery.
