Amanda Fitzellen May Burnett

This is a photo of Amanda May Burnett, ninth child of Samuel May and Catherine Evans May. She was born at the May House on October 22nd, 1824. She married John M. Burnett, a local tailor in 1845. This photo was found in Tress May Francis`s May Family Album. Untill recently, not much was known about Amanda beyond what was first presented here. While researching a book on her first cousin, Col. Reuben May [USA], records were found of an 1881 marriage to James H. Layne, the husband of her deceased sister, Charlotte Temple May. They resided in Vernon County, Wisconsin. Her first husband died in Prestonsburg in 1858. (Photo courtesy of William James May of Prestonsburg.)
