MAY, Harry May settled on May's Prairie, in Callaway co. in 1820, where he built a horse-mill and opened a race track. This race track became a place of note in those early times, and a great many races were run upon it. On a certain occasion, the WILLINGHAMs and KILGOREs, of Audrain co., borrowed Sanford Jameson's fine race nag, Janus, filled her mane and tail full of sheep burs and took her to May's race track to run against a crack pony known as Nick Biddle, which had been brought from KY. by THOMAS, DAVID and SINGLETON SHEHAN. The mare presented such a poor appearance with the burs in her mane and tail, that the bets were all in favor of the pony, and nearly every one present staked some money on the favorite. COLONEL JEFF. JONES, who was a boy then, was there with $7.50 in his pocket, and he bet $5 of his money on the pony. When the race came off the mare beat the pony 250 yards in a run of 600, and there were some pretty long faces in the crowd that witnessed the result. Mr. Jameson afterward sold his little mare to a gentleman from Louisiana, for a large sum of money, and the latter won $80,000 with her while he kept her.

The next day he was killed by an accident on the cars, and the friend to whom he had entrusted so much, endeavored to keep the land, but had to relinquish it after four years of litigation.

She was the first member of the Methodist church in Callaway co., and the first class of that denomination was organized in her little cabin, 16 x 18 feet in size, in 1819. Preaching was held there regularly for 30 years, and her house was often filled night and day, with people who had come to head the gospel preached. They frequently came as far as twenty and thirty miles, and she would borrow beds from her neighbors for them to sleep upon. The men would bring their guns and dogs with them. The guns were stacked in one corner of the house, while the dogs remained outside and fought. On one occasion, the dogs treed a catamount during services, which were immediately closet so that all could go and witness the fight.
