I'm searching for more information on the ancestry of Samuel M. Breese who was born on Feb 24, 1821 in Ohio. On August 21, 1845 in Perry, OH, he married Eliza Donaldson (b. Dec 07, 1824 in OH, d. Jun 07, 1899). He died on Oct 22, 1878. Eliza was remarried to G.W. Grimes in 1893.
Samuel and Eliza had 7 children: 1. Mary Violet Breese (b. Jan 29, 1847) 2. Elwood James Breese (b. Sept 22, 1849) 3. Timothy Lee Breese (b. Jul 30, 1851) 4. George Henry Breese (b. May 20, 1854) 5. Rebecca Emily Breese (b.Mar 21, 1858) 6. Samuel Eben Breese (b. Feb 18, 1861) 7. Margaret Ann Breese (b. Feb 10, 1864)
Our family is in possession of the Breese family bible. If anyone is interested, I can try to scan some of the images within to share. Unfortunately, it has no info regarding the ancestry of Samuel or Eliza, so I am very eager to see if anyone out there knows more.
