I too am a descendant of Holden G. May and Jane Palmer through their dau. Susannah who married James Culbertson. Holden would have been my 3rd great grandfather. I too have heard that a story about some kind of storm or natural disaster (tornado) that came through the area and the next morning there he was found holding onto a gate and then the family took him on to raise.
I have heard this happened in the month of May so therefore his name was given as Holden Gate May. So who raised him? This is considered to be the beginning of the May line from which we descend but who exactly raised him? I too have this book so maybe I need to get it out and look it over and re familiarize myself with it.
