May, Dr. Frederick d 26, January 1847

At his residence in this city, on Saturday night, at half-past 9 o'clock, in the 74th year of his age, Dr. Frederick May.

Dr. May was one of the oldest and most deservedly respected inhabitants of Washington, of which he had been a resident for nearly fifty years, during all the time practicing his profession with great assiduity and success, having been for many years the oldest Physician in our city.

His most estimable personal character secured to him, whilst he lived, not the respect merely, but the affection, of all who knew him well; and, dying, he leaves to lament his loss, besides a wide circle of sorrowing friends, a family of sons and daughters grown up to manhood and maturity, to whom he was one of the most affectionate and devoted Fathers that ever lived.

Now to point out the obvious, they show the death to be 26, January 1847. But the article ran on the 25th of January 1847. Dr. Frederick May, passed on the 23rd of January 1847.
