In Reply to: WILLIAM BRESEE - POLY STARK by Arlena Harper-Bresee of 117

Hi, Arlena:

I had almost given up on finding parents for the William Bresee who married Polly Stark. What do you know? I've thought for years that William was a son of Andrew (the son of Christopher and Agness Rossman Bresee). Andrew did have unknown sons born about the time of William's birth. This tentative connection is based on the fact that Andrew Bresee owned land in Penfield, NY at the same time as Asahel Stark, the father of Polly Stark, who married William Bresee in NY. Polly's brother Archibald is also known to have married in Penfield. Also, in Illinois in 1840, Elma Dorous Bresee, son of Michael and grandson of Andrew, lived a few miles from William and Polly Bresee. I suspect that William is connected to Andrew's family in some way, but I've never been able to prove a relationship.
