Got some info about Betsy Ready and, if it is the right READY, we've made a connection. I'll start from the beginning:
JOHN READY, my g-grandfather, immigrated from Kilkenny Co., Ireland, arriving in New York in June 1842. He married MARY ANN CORBLEY and the "Ready Farm" was located on Bennett Street, Brighton.
JOHN JR., the fourth of eight children was born in 1855. At one time his occupation was "cattle shipper." (Brighton, at the time, was the cattle capital of the East).
JOHN JR. married MARIA A. HICKEY and they had three children:
- MIRIAM born 11 Mar 1897. She married PAUL D. EVERETT on 15 Sep 1917.
- WILLIAM born 2 Oct 1900. He married ALICE FITZPATRICK.
- WALTER. Don't know who his spouse was, but I do know they had two children:
RICHARD (who was retarded) and
That's a long way to get to your BETSY, but it does give you some background. And they did live on Bennett Street.
The READYs are Roman Catholic. Most of G-GRANDFATHER JOHN's children were baptised in St. Columbkille's Church in Brighton, including my GRANDFATHER PATRICK and GRANDMOTHER ANNIE (KEENAN) READY, my father and aunts and uncles. Some of the first Masses of St. Columbkille's were held in my g-grandparents home on Bennett St. In fact, G-GRANDFATHER JOHN was St. Columbkille's first sexton. Prior to the establishment of the Parish of St. Columbkille the READYs attended Mass at St. Mary of the Assumption in Brookline where the first of the eight children were baptised.
That about wraps it up for now. Hope it helps Let me know if I can be of any help in your quest.
