Hi Mary. My Grandmother was Irena Thomas, Amanda's Sister. I have been trying to find Irena's dad's name for years. Where did you find that it was Augustus? Irena died in 1908 or 1909 so any information is impossible to find on her. On all the census her sons (three) have been sited as their stepmothers's children. It like she never was never here. I have been searching info on Amanda hoping to find info on Irena. Irena married Mabry Koller in 1890. Her mother Mary was already a Breadfield in 1890. Augustus must have died before 1890. My other grandmother that later married Mabry Koller wanted my mother to name me August. So, that fits. Back in those days they named kids after their grandparents. My E-mail is lkollerellison67@Yahoo.com. Transcribers for the census got most names wrong most of the time. Hope to hear from you.
