naming known members of the seventh, eighth, and ninth generations
of the May family that are descended from
Johann Leonhardt Meÿ and Anna Christina Schuch

The May brothers and sisters who immigrated to America with their mother in 1748 were members of the sixth generation of the Meÿ family, as identified in The Shoemaker's Children. The descendants of Johann Leonhardt (Leonard) and Frantz (Francis) Peter Meÿ (May) have carried the May name into the Twenty-first Century in America. Leonard's first wife, Maria Barbara Lorentz, apparently died in his hometown of Niederhausen about March 1747, following the birth of their second child.
