I am looking into the Readys for the first time on behalf of my first cousin, George Ready.George's grandfather was Albert ("Bert"), b Iowa in 1868. Bert's father was William L (b. Hamilton County, OH 1843), who was the son of Lain, Jr. and brother of Creighton. Now to my question: I see that Lain Ready, Sr. is said to have been from Delaware, born c. 1775-78. Why is Lain (or Lane) Ready not seen in the US census before 1830? I see the Nicholas-Bryan-John-Lain, Sr. lineage referred to, but I can't document it before 1830 in the records. Thanks.
