In Reply to: Eloise Breese or Rose Breese parents? by Shannon B of 637

Dear Shannon B., Eloise Breese Wray was the eldest daughter of Samuel Livingston Breese, Judge Sidney Breese's eldest surviving son. Joseph Lewis Breese was Samuel Liv. Breese's original name before he had it changed by an act of the legislature of Illinois 22.June.1852 after graduating from the USNA in Annapolis, and apparently in honor of his uncle Samuel Livingston Breese [Judge Sidney Breese's eldest brother].SLBreese married Rosa Lee of Baltimore with whom he sired at least five children (Eloise,Rosa Lee,Daniel A., Sophia,Richard, and perhaps Virginia) of whom Eloise,Rosa Lee, & Daniel A. surivived to adulthood. Eloise first married Charles W. Toney and is therefore my great-grandmother!!!He died a year later 1877 leaving Eloise a widow with a 13 month child, my grandfather Samuel Livingston Breese Toney. Eloise Toney (Breese) remarried c.1882 a doctor Frank H. Wray and had 2 sons Kenneth & Lester E. Wray--half brothers of my grandfather Samuel L.B. Toney. Rosa Lee [Eloise's mother died in Philadelphia in 1867] and S.L.Breese remarried in 1869 E.C.McCullough with whom he lived until the year of his death in 1899. He did not have ANY children by his second wife. As you can see, this family is of great interest to me and I am quite surprised to read of your interest in my gt-grandmother Eloise.
