My Ready Ancestor Disappeared!

Posted: 25 Oct 2005 10:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Ready, Readdy, Reade, Reedy, Readey
My great-great- grandfather was Levi Ready (sometimes Reedy). He was born about 1850 in Tennessee, but migrated very early in life to Maries County MO. He married and had 3 children. When he was about 25 years old, he left Maries County - never to be heard from or seen again - so the story goes.
I have found nothing in Maries County to show that foul play was suspected. I have not been able to locate him anywhere after 1874. I am looking for anybody who may have an ancestor that just 'appeared' on the scene about 1874 or later. He may have changed his name - then I will probably never get it figured out. But if he went by his last name or something close to it - Ready, Reedy, Readdy, Reade, Readey, etc, it may be possible to figure it out.
If he didn't go by Levi, he may have went by Isaac, Thomas, Richard, Robert, Perry, or Henry.
