Breese Family Bible
Posted by: Carissa (ID *****6973) Date: July 12, 2004 at 14:01:08
  of 636

Samuel M. Breese - apparently the original owner of this Bible, was born in Ohio on Feb. 24, 1821. He married Eliza Donaldson (b. Dec 07. 1824 in Ohio) on Aug 21, 1845. They had 7 children - none of which I've been able to firm up a birthplace for. The family Bible does, however, provide birthdates, marriage dates and death dates for a number of his children and grandchildren.

I descend from Samuel's daughter Rebecca and am now in possession of the Breese family Bible which was passed on to her. I've just finished posting scanned images of this family Bible online, feel free to stop by and have a look. Let me know if you find a connection to your line!

Hope this helps someone out! I'd love to hear from you if you do find a connection to this family!
