Though these essays are directed primarily at the ancestors and descendants of John May, the four essays on the family in the Rheinland Palatinate and the two on their lives in Lancaster and Berkeley Counties should be of interest to the descendants of John's uncles and aunts who immigrated to America. The only uncle who has descendants known to be living in America is Johann Leonhardt Meÿ (Leonard May). Limited information on the families of John's aunts in America has recently been found. Anyone with knowledge of these lines of the May family are requested to contact Fred T. May.
