In going through census records, I have come across a few spelling mistakes!Bresee and Bresie are about as close as can be.
I have found several listings for William A Bresie on the birth records for the West Copake, Columbia County, New York Reformed Church.Then nothing until after my husband's grandfather who was born in Michigan in 1873. I have noticed that there are several listings for Bresee (from NY)living in Michigan
William A Bresie migrated from Stittsville, Michigan to Texas in 1889. I have his autograph book dated Dec 25, 1888.
If you should come across a Bresie listing on any records, would you notify me.Pat Bresie
