Elijah Smith May house

Hello, my name is Sarah Deford Williams. My grandparents Fred and Phyllis DeFord lived in a house that was built on an existing foundation in Ellettsville, IN. The foundation was, I heard, built by your great great grandfather Elijah Smith May.

I am an author and I am working on a book that partially takes place in that house. I was wondering if you had any information about the original house built by your great great grandfather. I was told it was a large stately brick home that he built for his wife and many children, but that's all I know. I was rather excited to see him pictured by a brick home in this picture. I am wondering if it's the same house.

If you have any info, I'd be happy to hear it. Thanks!
