Dear Madam, I did already have the information you posted although a few items are in conflict. Sidney's wife was Eliza not Eloise. But he did have a daughter Eloise and a granddaughter Eloise (my gt grandmother). I have Samuel L. Breese's date of birth as 26 Dec 1831 not 1830. I would love to correspond with you & establish the provenance of your dates. Mine could be in error. I have seen Thomas Lee described as Colonel, but in what capacity? He resigned his commission in the USMC in 1831 at the rank of lieutenant. And have as of yet not be able to establish how he is named Colonel Thomas Lee. If I remember correctly Sarah Ann Breese was an elder sister to my Sidney Breese who is my gt-gt-gt grandfather, so that we are 6th generation descendants of two siblings. And 7th from Arthur Breese & Catherine Livingston? In another posting you make reference to a family bible does it include dates for the children of Sidney Breese, 14 in all. I have all the dates but would like to confirm them independently. Regards, Alan Toney
