|May L. Lawhead|
May returned to her parent's home to raise her child, working as a department store clerk to support him. She and Charles Jr. both resided in the family home until 1925 when he married Bessie Beatty. By 1940 May was living with her unmarried twin Gay, still in Monongalia, and working as a mail clerk at the university at age 70. Certainly not the life she had anticipated that spring day in 1898.
