Theodore Read (Reed) and family

Theodore and sons died in 1918 flu epidemic (so I am told) and his widow and daughters were in Easton by 1920. One daughter, Dorothy eventually married Edward William Ivey. Family chatter has Theodore and sons in Easton at their death.

The Iveys are another interesting problem! I know one Edward (EW's grandfather) was a City Councilman for Easton - and his father was one of two immigrants from England -- I am attempting to connect the Ivey families in the Easton-Glendon-Williams Twp areas of Northampton County, PA to each other. It appears there were 2 or 3 families that (from what we can find in the US) were unrelated. But I suspect the immigrants William Ivey and Edward Ivey might have been brothers. Both were from the Cornwall area of England - born between 1834 and 1839 and worked as miners here in the US. Both appear on the 1860 US Census.

SO - my interest in Easton area is diverse!!
