Hi Audrey, we have corresponded before but I have lost touch with you. I am back on the trail of Isam Ready born 1825 in Boone County, Missouri, the son of James L. Ready and Nancy Phillips. I have seen your postings about James's father being Isham Ready of Amherst County, Virginia who died in Hardin County, Kentucky. I would like to gather in all of the documentation for this paper trail. Did Isham leave Amherst County in 1795 and move to Kentucky?
