EPHRIAM BREES, my ggggrandfather resided in Hancock County until at least 1872. His wife was Lavinia BERRY. I am trying to identify his parents, brothers and sisters and place of death and burial. He is believed to have been born in Basking Ridge, NJ in 1794. Ephriam's son Isaac Breese was my gggrandfather who also resided in Hancock County and is buried in the cemetery at Philadelphia, IN.
