I am looking for members of the Bresie family. A possible variation of Bressie.
William Arthur Bresie was born in Saginaw, Michigan on Dec 18, 1873. His father worked in logging camps in the area.
I have his autograph book that was a Christmas gift in 1888. He left his family and made his way south. He was in:
West Branch, Missarskee Co. MI on Mar 2, 1889
Stittsville, MI on April 26, 1889
West Branch, MI on Feb 21, 1890
Warren, TX on Dec 22, 1890 - May 30, 1890
Groveton, Texas on May 10, 1892
Cleveland, LA on Apr 10, 1893 and signed by his future wife, Carrie Anna Hall on Apr 21, 1893. Carrie born Mar 24, 1875 in the Pass Christian, Miss. area
They were married in 1895 and lived near DeQuincy, LA
He was listed as a logging foreman in 1901 when my father-in-law, William Arthur Bresie, Jr. was born on Dec. 6, 1901.
Willie and Carrie had 11 children: 7 girls and 4 boys.
If anyone has a connection to this family please respond. In using the white pages on the internet, the only Bresie entries are known relatives--all 10 or so first and second cousins in the USA!! Most of us live in Texas. Pat
