Jack May`s Great Grandchildren
Found in Tress May Francis`s May Family Album, this photo shows three great-grandchildren of Colonel A. J. May. These are the grandchildren of Byrd May Chapman, the fifth child of Colonel Jack May and Mary Matilda Davidson May. The father of these children was William Byrd May Chapman, son of Byrd May Chapman. Byrd May married Rees Cecil Chapman of Tazewell on January 28th, 1892. She died while she was still a young bride--on August 31st, 1894. I haven`t yet been able to piece together the story of Byrd`s tragic death. She is buried in the May Family plot in the Tazewell Cemetery. {Photo courtesy of William James May of Prestonsburg.)
