I am researching for my children. I have a Robert Emmett Breen 14JUL1891 to 14JUN1976 m Gertrude Quest. His father was Patrick J. Breen b 1860 m Mary Cannon. In the census records I found that Patricks father was Thomas Breen. Also in the records it indicated that Patrick and his sister Anna were born in Ireland so that leads me to the conclusion that they emigrated to the U.S. sometime between 1862 and 1864 when John the next child was born. There was also a Mary b. 1866, Catharine b. 1868 and Thomas b. MAR1870. This is all I have for now except that Thomas' wife was Mary also, b 1840 in Ireland.

Dear Bill ,
I have very little information , but might be able to get some more from my father in law. His name is John R. Breen and he was the only child of John Patrick and louise Hentz. He was born in Nothern NY (Antwerp ), his parents divorced when he was young , and his father moved to Rochester. He was born in 1914 . I will make sure that we contact him asap.I am afraid that seperation at a young age from his father means that he may not have much info - which is why I decided to take a look for it myself.

I just asked my father - in - law about his father and grandfather. He says his father John Patrick Breen was born around 1893 that he had "lots" of brothers and sisters. Maimie , Catherine and Jimmy - who died of the flu around WW1(1919?)were the only names he could come up with right then.John Patricks father was named Michael Patrick. who was born "the year after Mrs. Murphys barn burnt down " hmmm... I will have to check that one out ! Anyhow , I am not discouraged since we are searching the same area geographically , I am sure someone common is there at some point !

HI MAUREEN, I HAVE FOUND MORE STUFF !LET ME START OVER, MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS THOMAS BARTHOLOMEW BREEN. HE AND HIS FIRST WIFE ( NAME UNKNOWN ) HAD A SON NAMED FRANK. FRANK HAD FOUR SONS OF HIS OWN. ONE OF FRANKS SONS WAS NAMED BART. BART DIED OF TB IN ARIZONA. THOMAS'S SECOND WIFE WAS ANNIE HOEY.THEY HAD AT LEAST FOUR SONS,THOMAS,WILLIAM JOSEPH,JOHN JOSEPH AND DANIEL. DANIEL DIED AT THE AGE OF 16 IN A BRONX APARTMENT FIRE. WILLIAM JOSEPH HAD A SON WILLIAM AND A DAUGHTER RUTH. WILLIAM HAD NO MIDDLE NAME. WILLIAM HAD TWO SONS, WILLIAM JOSEPH (ME ) AND DANIEL ROBERT. MY FATHER DIED IN CLEVELAND. MY BROTHER DANNY DIED WHEN HE WAS 29 DAYS OLD.
THOMAS BARTHOLOMEW IS BURIED IN ST. RAYMONDS CEMETARY, BRONX, NY. WILLIAM JOSEPH IS BURIED IN PINE LAWN CEMETARY ON LONG ISLAND,NY AND DANIEL ROBERT IS BURIED IN RIVERSIDE CEMETARY, ROCHESTER, NY.
SO AS FAR AS I CAN TELL RIGHT NOW, JOHN JOSEPH IS THE ONLY JOHN I HAVE. I WAS BORN IN 1954 AND I THINK MY FATHER WILLIAM ( NO MIDDLE NAME ) WAS BORN ABOUT 1929 OR 1930. MY BROTHER DANIEL WAS BORN IN SEPT 56. THESE ARE THE ONLY DATES THAT I KNOW RIGHT NOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR REPLY

I notice that some of your Breans were in NY.
My father-in -law was born Dec. 1896 supposedly in Brooklyn. Father was a Brean
(spelled that way) mother was Margaret Duffy. Can't find any info. He was born Philip, but changed to William Murray later.
