Different sources spell her name sometimes Millissa and Malissie. She always went by the name of May.

May was the daughter of George Washington Veal and Anna Maria Sears. She married George Washington McPherson around 1882.

The Veal Family History written by Frank Russell Shoemaker states she died in 1897 or 1898.

Rhuie Vitura (McPherson) Landrith's obituary states that her Mother died when Rhuie was 4 years of age. Rhuie was born at the end of 1893, therefore, May would have died about 1898.

Orpha (Nash) McPherson wrote in her family history notes that Malissa Electa Veal was born August 18, 1864 and that she died May 30, 1898 at the age of 34 years.

Her tombstone is inscribed with the year of death as 1899.


May E. McPherson, "Mother", died 1899 (family states she died in 1898)
