Mays Cemetery Information Submitted by Jan Smith

ON the Old Noel May farm which is west of Graves Mills in the area of Buzzard Rocks & Schoolhouse hill areas in the southwes part of Madison County lies an old forgotten family Graveyard on a proprty that was once owned By The May family then later on by Estes family. I think it was known as Estes Graveyard though it was deeded for the May family to use back in the 1850/60's.

Three burials I know are here include: (and I will give all the info I have)

1) Noel May , b. abt 1792/1793 Orange Co,Va., died 1866. He was the son of Thomas & Anna (Hyate) May.

2) Aleavy (Eddins) May, b. abt 1795 Va, died bet. 1860-1863., daughter of Theophilus & Dorothy ( Kirtley) Eddins.

3) William May, son of Noel & Sarah (Collins) May, b. bet 1863-1866. Sarah was Noel's 2nd wife whom he married in 1863. William may have died young.
