David & Martha Prater May on their
70th wedding anniversary.

From a local newspaper article in 1937 we know the following:

David and Martha celeberated their 70th wedding anniversary at their country home on Lexington road, two miles north of Nicholasville, KY. A retired minister of the Methodist Church, he and his wife moved to the Nicholasville area about 1919. All of their living children attended the celebration: Frank May of Harrodsburg, KY, Mamie May Allen of Harrison Co., KY, E. L. May of Nicholasville [who was living with his parents], Earl May of Harrison Co., and Ida May Shropshire of Bourbon, Co., KY. At the time they had 16 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Among the 45 guests was John Dennison of Cynthiana, whom they had reared.
