Birth: Mar. 31, 1829
Tennessee, USA
Death: Oct. 28, 1908
Burnet County
Texas, USA

From the Burnet Bulletin, 5 Nov 1908:

Captain Breazeale moved to Texas in 1845, and settled in Fayette County. He enlisted in the Texas troops and served with honors under Gen. Zack Taylor during the war with Mexico.

In 1858 he moved to Llano county, and in 1860 he was united in marriage to Miss Alice Mitchell, in Fayette county.

He was one of the most active of the frontiersmen of that day in their fights against the Indians which were frequent and oftimes bloody. His fine judgment and undoubted courage made him a leader during those strenuous days, and he was chosen to command a frontier company during the Civil War, and did much to protect the remote settlements from annihilation. Chapters could be written of the battles in which he participated and occupied a prominent part.

...He is survived by his faithful wife and four children: two boys and two girls, as follows: John Breazeale of Bertram, Robert Breazeale of Willow City, Mrs. Jones of Kerr county, and Miss Lou Breazeale of Bertram.

Two brothers and one sister are also left to mourn the death of their noble brother: Harrison Breazeale of this place, Clint Breazeale of New Mexico, and Mrs. Luce of San Marcos.
