John Breese Jr. was born April 29, 1791 on the farm at Horseheads. He remained with his parents till their deaths and then came into possession of the "Old Farm" by buying off the heirs. He was married to Miss Mary Ann Truesdale, a native of Orange Co, NY, Jan. 14, 1817. She was born Aug. 22, 1797. By this happy alliance, eleven children were born, namely: Caroline, Lemoyne, Josiah, Sarah, Esther, John, Hannah, Catherine, Angeline, Horace and Mary, all of whom are now living in this state and in Michigan.

Mr. and Mrs. Breese celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Jan. 14, 1867 at which were present 10 children, 19 grandchildren, one brother and one sister; also a host of friends who were young men and women when this aged couple were married, all of whom brought valuable gifts, kind wishes and pleasant words. They continued to live together untill March 3, 1874 when Mrs. Breese died. She was a kind and affectionate wife and devoted mother. For more than forty years she was a worthy member of the Baptist Church of Horseheads. Mr. Breese has been a member also for many years and by word and deed has done his part in building up good schools and churches. In politics, a Democrat, he never held any official position, preferring the quiet of home to any officials honors. His occupation has always been that of farming. He is now hale and heart, a man of more than eighty-eight summers and whose mind is as good as ever.

From a Chemung County history (1879).
