Hi, I don't know his fathers name. I'm not even sure of the spelling of his last name. Brissee, Brazee etc... My GGGrandmother was born I believe as a result from an affair. Louisa Dann was her mothers name, and Slack was the family that raised her in Lackawanna PA and the surrounding areas. It has been passed down that Fred Bresee was part indian and kind of a scoundral and a wanderer(keep in mind this was the other family)She was born in the mid 1870s.This fredrick you spoke of..was he ever in the Pennsylvania area?? If you have any more info please feel free to contact.
