I am just starting to research my grandmother's Brees(e) line. This is what I have: Pearl Bell Brees b. Apr 13, 1884 Westphalia, KS, d. Nov. 20 1947. She married Joseph Albert Phippen.
Her father was Albert M. Brees and mother was Elizabeth Kesselring.
Albert moved to Kansas in 1876 from Indiana with his parents. I don't have his parents' names and am trying to find this out.
Elizabeth came from Central City, Anderson County, KS? and before then from Washington County, Ohio.
Children of Albert and Elizabeth were
Pete, the oldest moved to CA
Claude, believed the next oldest moved to CA
Pearl, as above
Jessie, married Tom Bennett
Ethel, married Clyde Greening
Marie, a half sister from Albert's second wife-don't have the wife's name. She married Loren Rosenburger
If anyone is researching this family, please let me know. Anyone know Albert's parents or have other information?
Thanks, Ken Phippen
