Joseph Frost Breeden
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 31, 1883
Maries County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 24, 1954
Cass County
Missouri, USA

Joseph was the son of John W. Breeden and Cordelia Rowden. He was the brother of my great grandmother, Livella Singleton, and the 10th of 12 children in this family.

He was named after his grandfather, Joseph Frost Breeden.

He was married twice. I do not yet know much about his first wife, Elsie Dicks. By the 1920 Census he was widowed. Before 1930 he married his second wife, Ruth Martha Crow.

By profession Joseph was a Barber.

His sister, Livella singleton, wrote about him to her daughter Gala on 11/04/1951:

"...Joe & Ruth have bought a 20 acre farm 30 miles south of Kansas city. Have a nice 5 room house, large barn, chicken house, brooder house, tenant house, well and cistern and a hog tight fence. They have a cow, chickens & hogs. Joe says he is the happiest he ever was. They both quit work but he thinks he will put up a barber shop in his sun room. There is no barber shop where they are, a small town nearby. They have all their rooms all furnished with new furniture, and everything paid for. They should be happy..."
