Hi Carole, Are you still looking for living family?

You received a lot of information in this thread from 2008:

http://boards.ancestry.com/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=9256&p=localities.northam.usa.states.iowa.unknown

The thread says Lawrence was born in 1918 in Iowa.
Delbert was born in 1922 in Iowa.

In 1925 the family was in Fort Madison, Lee County, Iowa.
Fred T. Reader 30 b England, married in Iowa
FATHER Thomas Reader 58 b England
MOTHER Anna Milleen 56 b England
WIFE Ethel 27 b Wisconsin
FATHER Ed Workman 57 b Illinois
MOTHER Lizzie Shaw 45 b Vermont
SON Fred L. Reader age 7 born Iowa
SON Delbert M. Reader age 2 born Iowa

A 1923 passport applicaton gives Fred's name as Fred Thomas Reader born 10 March 1894 in Marden, Kent, England. Fred immigrated in 1916. Says he has two sons Lawrence age 5 and Merl age 1 (the ship's manifest gives this boy's name as Delbert M.)

Tons and tons of more information available on the thread.

I'm adding all this here in case it helpes any cousins out there to connect with you.
