Also looking for the Breese Family connection. My Greatgrandfather Henry Francis Brees or Breese was born in Jefferson County Nebraska in 1881. His parents were Frank and Mary E. Brees (a fourth cousin). Henry was adoped after the death of both of his parents within a year or two of his birth. He had two sisters Rosa and Lotta. We believe Frank's father to be Henry (b Ohio 1828). In 1880 a Henry and Elizabeth (b MO 1844)are listed in the Jefferson County Nebraska census. Perhaphs Elizabeth is a second wife as the children listed are Ida age 19 Evaline 15, George 18, Henry 9, Hatie 7, Rosa 4. Also listed is John 20 a son-in-law. My Greatgandfather married Sarah Catherine Wicker and they lived in Monroe County Iowa when first married. Does this information tie in with anyones?
