About Our Family Research
The Ready family came from The Horse Creek Valley of Aiken County, South Carolina. My Great Grandfather was James E. Ready and a Civil War Soldier. He married Frances E(?) and they had two or three children, John, my Grandfather, Laura and possibly Frank, a half brother. Grandfather John was married to Ella Ethel Napier and they had three children. One, Clarence, died of flu in 1919 and there was Charles Grady and William Alva. My Grandfather John was a Grocer in Graniteville all of his life and ran his own business before his death. Also he was Superintendant of Sunday School at the First Baptist Church for about 27 years.
