05.18 Parents of Hannah May Found!


<img style="float: right; margin: 10px 10px 15px 15px;" width="" src="http://www.clanstirling.org/uploads/newflash.jpg" alt="NEWSFLASH" title="NEWSFLASH"> Woodinville, WA - May 18, 1998 Ann Buckley has found what we now believe to be the parents of Hannah May! Ann located the information in The Mayflower Descendant, Vol 27 (1925) which had information regarding the family of Edward May and Anne Parris.

Further Research by Michael L. Jex has added further information to this exciting addition to the family line of James Sterlings companion Hannah.

We know Hannah's father was an Edward May from Golds history of Cornwall. We also know they likely came from outside the Cornwall area, as this part of Litchfield County was being settled at the time. With the information found, we also find several names of family members were also used by the May family. An extensive search has been made for all persons named Hannah May for the 1700-1750 time period. Special thanks to Ann for bringing this information to Clan Stirling.
Further research is ongoing for the names MAY & STERLING in this area.

Now if we can just find how they met, and how James came from Scotland! (Note: Current research indicates James was born in Connecticut)
A group sheet has been prepared for review -
