Appears the first Ready to explore the family history. Apparently she applied to the DAR thinking James Ready was a Revolutionary vet. This is where the story of him fighting for Cornwallis seems to start.

She also apparently raised two of her nieces, Addie V. and Edith A. (daughters of John Lovejoy Ready). as there is a picture of the three of them and they appeared together in Rivertion in the 1910 census.

Eugene Ready, infant son of Ira Ready and Olive Huff is buried in Jennie's plot in Greenwood Cemetery in Franklin next to James Watson.
