I have just started work on a family tree for the Breese family. My great-grandfather, William Breese, had an older brother, Robert Bush Breese, who family records show was born in Reepham, Norfolk, England on October 9, 1818, came to Canada in 1836 with another brother, Stephen, settled in Chicago in 1837, had a daughter, Mrs. Dickerman(?) and a granddaughter, Miss Dickerman(?), and died in Chicago on January 24, 1903. The Dickerman information comes from a newspaper clipping from 1898 describing a visit by Robert Breese, his daughter and granddaughter with Robert's brothers and sisters in Chatsworth, Ontario, Canada.

If you think our Robert Breese is the same person, please reply. I have the original marriage certificate of Robert Breese's parents, James Breese and Martha Bush, dated 1807 a copy of which I could sent along with the information I have gathered so far.
