T. A. May

We regret very much to learn of the death of Mr. T.A. May whose demise occurred Sunday night, Nov.12th 1899, at his home near Grapevine where he had moved for the purpose of running a blacksmith shop for the Bluff City Lumber Co.

Mr. May was born and reared about six miles southeast of Toledo.  He married Miss Sallie Gray who survives him. To them have been born twelve children.  Mr. May was a hard working honest man.  He was a member of the Methodist church.  Mr. May leaves surviving him a mother, Mrs. Mary May, a brother Mr. R.J. May and a sister, Miss Nannie May all living at Toledo besides a wife and children to mourn his loss.  His remains were interred at Wesley's Chapel Tuesday evening.  The HERALD extends sympathy to the bereaved family.
