It will be on her marriage certificate. The name will be her mother's surname.

I can't even find that.On my dads B certificate her last name was slated as Raye or Ray not sure which she used and when I try to find my greatgrandmother I haven't been able to find her either.not real sure where they are from as far as state,or county.I am also not sure where she was Married at state and or county.They only family member that would have known any of this is my Aunt and she has Alzheimers,and don't remember any of the information that would have helped in my serch.

I see what you mean. I found a couple of trees one says the maiden name is May and the other one says Johnson. Neither has any source I can find to support either of these surnames. The death details above are from Social Security Death Index.

Found this on a tree in They have her surname as MAY no other details for her.
