Dear madam, James Buchanan Breese was son of Judge Sidney Breese & Eliza Morrison of Carlyle, Clinton County,IL. And a younger brother to my gt-gt-grandfather Samuel Livingston Breese a captain in the USN. There is abundant & ample information available (in printed & manuscript form) about the Breese family. As this family is of great interest to me, please indicate the scope of (relation to JBB) of your interest in the Breese family. I know of four children born to JBB & JOY:James Buchanan Breese, Edward Yarde Breese, Mary Ormsby Breese & ?(I do not have my research at hand). There is a letter in the Breese Collection (of which I have obtained a typescript) at the Illinois State Historical Library, written by Charles B. Breese (JBB eldest brother) & addressed to his father Sidney Breese, wherein he mentions the birth & later (in a subsequent letter) the name to be (James Buchanan) of a younger brother!*Note--Sidney Breese was at that time in WDC fullfiling his obligations as U.S. Senator for Illinois (one term 1843-1849.
