I am posting this for everyone's input. It is based on various data I have acquired, some proven via census, church or cemetery records but some is not proven yet. I "assume" these represent children of Jeremiah but am looking for more verification. Jeremiah was a brother to my ancestor Christopher I. BRESEE.
