I found an Abraham Breece in the History of Placer County. I don't know if he's related or not. But you might want to check it out as there is no confirmation about Bertha's maiden name. One of the obits said Bion. But I didn't find a Bion in Placer county under marriage. Although the dates match up. If you didn't get the attachment, I'll send you the obit by email. Let me know.
