I am a direct descendant of Silas BREESE, who married Henrietta Rosina LARWILL. They came to Illinois from New Jersey in about 1840 and settled in Serena, LaSalle County, IL. Silas was the son of John BREES and Elizabeth Lindsley RAYNOR. John Brees was the son of Azariah BREES and Susannah GILDERSLEEVE. I would love to hear from any other descendants of Silas or Azariah. I have a lot of information to share. I descend from Silas' son, Thurlow Ellsworth. Thurlow Ellsworth and Rose Tompkins had Larwill BREESE (my grandfather) and Larwill BREESE and Charlotte OSSINGER (my grandmother) had my father, Thurlow Wilsey BREESE. My maiden name was Lori Breese. If you think you have a connection, please write. I have a lot of family memorabilia- pictures, letters and obscure records that I have located in my ten years of research on the BREESE line and would love to find others who would like to share their information.
