Re: Breese, Clinton County, Il
Hi!My husband's grandmother was Alvera ("Vera") Wilhelmina Dorries, b. 2/6/1906, from Breese, IL, later moved to St. Louis.As his mother recollects, the family may have also been known as as "Dorris":
Henry Dorries, abt. 1880-1938
m. Louise Kaufmann, abt. 1885-1935
Herman, Sophia, William, John, Leroy, Theodore, Hortense, Olivia, Alvera, and at least one child died in infancy.
Any connection?I would love to help her fill in the family roots -
