Dear Lloyd Reedy, I'm very sorry but I haven't anything on your Robert BENTON b. 5 Mar 1831.
I was seeking information on William READY b. around 1680 who in 1717/1718 was in Chowan County, North Carolina. There were other READYS/REEDYS in Chowan Co., NC who might also be related to this William READY such as George REED, Adam RABY, David READY, John READY, Thomas READY, James READY.Then there was another generation of REEDY or READY such as John, William, RAchel, Hezekiah, Shadrack.
He might be related to my John READY b. abt 1751 of Ashe County or Chowan County, North Carolina who married about 1774 Euphemia BROWN and 1779 md 2nd my Susan Rachel JONES.There were other READYS in Chowan Co.,NC at the same time as my John READY but my John READY moved out of Chowan Co., NC and died aft 1811 in Alabama.The remaining family along with John's wife Rachel Jones READY who moved to Tennessee.
