She was a twin to Jennie Louise Seymour (my maternal great-grandmother). They were born at home on Wampanoag Trail in Barrington, RI. Their parents were Capt. William Francis Seymour and Mary Anne Wheaton. Since their mother was an invalid due to Myelitis and died when they were only 17, they then lived with their aunt Juliette Lucretia Peck Seymour.
"May", as she prefered to be called was a wonderful cook. She graduated from "Normal School", a teaching school and was also a court stenographer.
May was always beautifully dressed and stylish. She had her own dressmaker.
She married Herbert Astle and they didn't have any children.
She had breast cancer but did survive it. Although she became withdrawn because it was so devastating. She had to have one or both breasts removed, I am not sure. She died of old age, three years after her twin.
Twins run every other generation on the maternal side in our family. May and Jennie's grandaughters: Martha and Jean are twins.
