I recently learned the name of my g-g-grandfather was John May. He married Mary Brown in Pennsylvania and then moved to the Grant Co area of Indiana in the 1830's. They had 5 children Jane (married Samuel Vannurder), William (Married Louisa Dodd) Amos, Caleb (Married Mahala Huddle) and James (married Amanda).
John died before 1850. Caleb and William fought in the Civil War. William from Iowa (he'd moved there with his wife's family) and Caleb (an Indiana Unit). After the war was over Caleb, and James moved to Wright Co, Minnesota. Jane's family and some in-laws moved to McLeod area about the same time.
