May was the only child of her father John Winston Williams. She had two half siblings, Joe Wood Grider and Mary Alice Grider Black. She was a member of the Brethren in Christ Church and also attended the Freedom Separate Baptist Church. She married James Patterson Conover on Mar 31, 1901 and had five children. She was survived by three children and her mother, Amanda Leach Grider.

Their marriage notice from The Adair County News, Apr 3, 1901:

Last Sunday afternoon, a party of eighteen ladies and gentlemen reached Columbia, in buggies, from the White Oak section. From the public square they drove to the residence of Rev. W.B. Cave, two of the party desiring to be married. A knock at the door soon brought the minister to the front, and while Mr. James P. Conover and Miss May Williams were seated in their buggy, the solemn and impressive ceremony which unites two hearts was pronounced, after which all the crowd [retreated] on their homeward trip.
