Birth: 1814

Death: Jul. 2, 1903

Rebecca May was admitted to the St. James veteran's Home in St. James, MO on November 11, 1897. She was the 49th resident to be admitted. She passed away when she was 89 yrs old.

In her younger years, in 1864, she was a nurse for the U.S. Army in New Orleans, LA. She was a resident at the Confederate Soldier's Home in Higginsville, MO for 3 yrs before she came to St. James. She was admitted with alzheimer's disease.

My grandfather worked many years as the department head of maintenance. He researched extensively the veterans that were buried there, so that he could help maintain the cemetery. Rebecca May's headstone is missing from her lot. Family members can please contact me for information regarding her headstone. My grandfather would like to pass on the information to family members.
Thank you, -Ryan (SnickerBug)

"The current Missouri Veterans Home in St. James was originally presented to the Department of Missouri, Women's Relief Corps "for ex-Union soldiers and their wives". In the late 1900s, the institution became the "Federal Soldiers Home of Missouri". There is a cemetery on the site, but it is not operated by the Federal Government." -Mayor Jim Morrison
