My answer

No matter there is "early" or not, the preposition "on" should be used here.

You can use "in" or just a "comma",
e.g. :-
a) Early in the morning of May 1, we started out for the village."
or
b) Early, the morning of May 1, we started out for the village."

Re: "如果没有early应该填哪个介词?"

如果没有early, then you have to use "in",
"In the morning of May 1, we started out for the village."

In my opinion, it's better to write it like this:-

a) We started out for the village in the morning of May 1st."
b) On May 1st, in the morning, we started out for the village."

Re: "IN"

Re: "Early ___the morning of May 1,we started out for the village."

For your information, there were no multiple answer choices to the question, just a blank space. Even though the most appropriate answer was the preposition(介词) "in"(which I had indicated), the only other alternative was to fill in a "comma" in the blank space to make the sentence complete and grammatically correct ("Early, the morning of May 1, we started out for the village.").

If you don't know how to use the "comma", you'd better take a refresher course in ELEMENTARY ENGLISH GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION before yapping your nonsense here.
