    Hello, I am from Iowa, United States. I didn’t know if this was the right place to contact but I’ll try anyway. We have recently purchased a home who that we believe was built for someone we believe was a resident of Reading in his early years. A man named Henry Harcourt Drake. We were wondering if someone could point us to a source of information on this person, as he has some local historical significance here in Sioux City. Thank you!
