Hello My name is Vicky and I have been researching several Mays that are matches in my ydna for my Nelsons. I live in Rowan Co.,N.C. and my Nelsons lived in Lincoln Co.,N.C.,Davie Co.,N.C.and Rowan Co.,N.C. I have Mays on both sides of my family. First a Alexander May md. to a Lucinda Eller were witnesses for the marriage of my Mary Ann Eller to George John David Goodman around 1880. This Mary Ann Eller was the daughter of Farley Eller and Julia Ann May.Mary Ann and George J.D. Goodman were my g. grandparents.This is on my Poole side of my family.
Next is on the Nelson- Shelton side of the family. Ydna places 4 different May men as matches to this side. Only one has a lineage tree that is found on familytreedna that I can actually look at. It comes from Benjamin May abt. 1750 S.C. through his son Reynolds May b. abt .1777 who md. Hannah English. Now coming to my point .I believe that my James Nelson( 3 G.grandfather)and his wife Nancy Reynolds living in Lincoln Co.,N.C. are related to Reynolds May through his mother, wife of Benjamin. I have seen a posting of a Thomas May with this set of Mays md .to a Reynolds. Also My 2g.grandfather John Nelson B. 1821,( son of James and Nancy) md. a Julia Ann Shelton b. abt. 1823-1828 of Rowan Co.,N.C. I also am trying to connect my Julia Ann Shelton Nelson to Henry R. Shelton living in Rowan Co.,N.C. in 1820 and 1830 ,later his son was listed in Davie Co.,N.C.. Davie Co.,N.C. was formed from Rowan Co.,N.C. about 1835. Now checking the 1820 census of Rowan Co.,N.C.I found on the same page living very close by to a Henry Shelton was Josiah English (related to Hannah English. md. to Reynolds May?) and a Martin May, the one you have been posting about. A possible sister to my Julia A.Shelton was a Nancy Clark Shelton. Hince the Clark surname. I also have Bryant,Craft, Green,Lawrence,Morgan surnames in my Nelson dna, but there are no lineage trees to with the names of the matches for me to check to see where I might connect. If at all possible would you contact me to discuss your ideas about all this. My email is hodg5497@ bellsouth.net. Thank you.
