I am researching the Breese family. My great grandmother Eloise Breese was a granddaughter of Sidney Breese her father Samuel Livingston Breese (the eldest surviving son of Sidney) baptized Joseph Lewis had his name changed by an act of the legislature of Illinois to honor his paternal uncle of the same name. Eliza (Alizir Odile) Morrison was indeed the wife of Sidney Breese. Very complete genealogical data exists for the Breese family. I and trying to move forward rather than back. My great grandmother widowed at a young age remarried and died as Eloise B Wray. I do not know when or where she died since she moved a great deal. She may have died between 1927-1930 in Illinois. Any help will be much appreciated. Sidney Breese was son to Arthur Breese and Catharine Livingston and grandson to Samuel Breese and Elizabeth Chevalier Anderson/Henry A Livingston and Sarah Welles. Two excellent books on the Breese family are:Personal Reminiscences by Walker Breese & Family Memorials by Salisbury (Unfortunately I do not have my data at hand) Any information on the descendants of Sidney Breese 1800-1878 will be greatly appreciated.
