      Margaret Milne b. 30 Jan 1875, d. 6 Oct 1875
      Stephen b. 12 Apr 1879, d. 1 Apr 1880

      John Alexander May m. Minnie Augusta Embury
      They had:
      Minnie Marjorie (spinster) b. 2 Feb 1900, d. 3 Feb 1982
      Areta Alexandra (Hudson) b. 4 Jun 1903, d. 30 Jul 1991
      John Milne b. 6 Mar 1908, d. 12 Aug 1992
      James Embury b. 11 Feb 1914, d 9 Jul 1986

      James Embury May married Nancy Marjorie Nichols
      They had:
      Joyce Marjorie (Wilson) b. 4 Jul 1940
      Patricia Wendy (Withers) b. 29 Feb 1944
      Kenneth James b. 2 Nov 1946
      Robert b. 7 May 1952, d. 31 May 1952.

      I'm the Kenneth James.

      Apparently, John May uplifted his family and sailed for NZ on the Ionic
      in about 1866 (I have to locate a shipping list) Mary Jane had married
      a Capt. John Henderson, but was apparently given few options but to
      sail with the family and John Henderson followed later.
      They settled in Wellington, in Johnsonville and Jessie and John
      Alexander were well known in the community. There was a farm called
      Glen Ugie, a house called Inverugie, and many other things. A small
      Methodist cemetery in Johnsonville has John and Jane May's graves with
      a gravestone just like the one in Peterhead Cemetery to John May (John
      and Alexander's father).

      Hope you find this interesting.

      Regards

      Ken
