My GGrandmother was Eliza Jane Breece b 12 Sept 1874 in Lisbon, Cedar Co., IA and d 2 February 1961 in Curlew, Palo Alto Co., IA. She md Ora Marshall Compton on 23 April 1891 in Stanwood, Cedar Co., IA. Her father was John Henry Breece b 5 December 1842 in Ohio d 1 December 1919. He md Clarissa Piper b 6 October 1842 in Richland Co., OH d 11 October 1910. John Henry's father was Henry b c 1812 in Ohio, d 13 January 1896 in Cedar Co., IA and his mother was Eliza Jane King b in Maryland. This is the information my GGrandmother gave the family in the fifties. I have searched for many years for the parents of Henry but have never determined whether his father was Henry or Samuel. I would appreciate any information available. The last three children you list for your Henry match the names of those found in the 1870 census for Mechanicsville, Pioneer Twp., Cedar Co., IA. My Henry is buried in the Union Clear Creek Cemetery in Cedar Co., IA and his stone says he was 87 yrs.
