Janet... I could have passed on an answer I guess, huh?

Samuel was the son of Timothy Brees -- who was a revolutionary war soldier. See the emails from Marilyn in this same forum -- he's the same Timothy Brees. Timothy was born in Morristown, New Jersey between 1751 and 1758 -- I've never found any definitive date. He is buried in Lost Creek Cemetary in Fort Madison Iowa -- which I've never found either. I even stopped in Fort Madison and asked the police where that might be -- they hadn't heard of it. They pointed me to some old cemetaries but he wasn't there that I could find.

Hope this helps... John
