From 1913 to the mid-1920's, Winifred lived with her mother, step-father, Charles Edgar Sherwood, under an assumed surname, Walker. Records for the family during this period are under that surname. Some records for Winifred after that time may appear with the surname, Sherwood, but what has been found so far show that she was using the surname of her birth father, Alexander George May.
