CLEVELAND, O.,
Feb. 17. - By the death of Dr. A. S. May, at Findlay, O., yesterday, a strange story was brought to light.  At the opening of the rebellion May enlisted, leaving his young wife and two children at home.  Soon news came from the front that he had been taken prisoner, and later it was reported that he had died.  The young wife mourned for a time, and then married a rich widow.
     All of the estate is in realty except $50,000, nearly all of household effects.  The heirs of the dead millionaire are the widow, a son, Albert J. Snell, and Mrs. Grace Coffin, Mrs. Mary Stone and Mrs. Alice McCrea, daughters.  By law, one-third of the $1,050,000 goes to the widow and the remainder falls equally to the four children share and share alike.
