Hi Deborah, I ran across your query while scanning the message board.
I have a Jeremiah Bresee b 1813 in file with a wife named Susan C. You have her surname as Nickerson, but I haven't found that yet. I have this couple with 9 children so far. I haven't confirmed the parents of this Jeremiah Bresee so far, but do have a possible one for you.
Descendants of Jeremiah Brazie 1 Brazie, Jeremiah b: 11 Feb 1813 in Claverack, Columbia, NY Christening: 16 May 1813 Reformed Church, Claverack, Columbia, NY, # 5208 Christening Witness: 16 May 1813 Jeremiah Konklin/Anatje Van Tassel d 1: 20 Oct 1895 in Franklinton, Schoharie, NY d 2: 20 Oct 1895 in Age 84 Burial: officiated by St Marks Ev Luth Church, Middleburg
If you can confirm that this is the same Jeremiah, I'd appreciate knowing. The parents of this Jeremiah were John J. Bresee and Lavina Conklin.
