"Joe Ready" was my great-grandfather. He came from Ireland to Boston (1864 time frame seems right). He married Amelia (Emma) Trenholm and they had three children John, Amelia (Mamie), and William Nathan. Amelia died of consumption. William was raised by an aunt in ND (Dr. Benjamin Trenholm, Emma's father,took William to Emma's sister). We heard Amelia went to a convent, but don't know for sure. We don't know what happened to John (son) or Joe (father).
