Have copy of his picture and obit which I found at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC, York County in 2010.

Mr. Kenon Breazeale died last Saturday morning at his home, about four miles west of this city , and on Sunday afternoon his remains were laid to rest in the Salem Baptist Churchyard, after a short funeral service in the church, conducted by Reverend H.B. Fant, in the presence of quite a large crowd, who had assembled to pay their respects to his memory.
Mr Breazeale was born near Belton in this county, on the 7th day of November, 1814, and was, therefore, in the 79th year of his age. He spent his life in this county, and we can truly say that by his death we lose one of our best citizens. He was held in high esteem by all who knew him, and was indeed, a useful citizen.
After completing his education, he taught school for a few years after which he began farming, which occupation he followed very successfully until his death. At the age of 33 years he married Miss Elizabeth Fretwell, a sister of the late Captain J.Y. Fretwell, who with six children are left to cherrish his memory, one of whom is our townsman, Hon. John E. Breazeale.
Mr. Breazeale was twice elected a member of the Board of County Commissioners for this County and was the chairman of the board both terms. In this position he rendered the County valuable services. He also filled other positions of honor and trust. Truly may it be said of him that he discharged every duty with fidelity and zeal. He was a very active and energetic man, and only a few weeks prior to his death seemed to still possess that energy and activity that was characteristic of him. He was firm in his convictions yet was of an amiable and gentle nature. He also greeted his friends with a smile and a cordial handshake. He felt deep interest in young men, and was ever ready to give them a word of advice. He was a warm friend to the writer; and it was always a great pleasure to us to meet him. His intimate friends will cherrish his memory as long as life lasts.
Mr. Breazeale joined the Salem Baptist Church several years ago, and was an active and devoted member. His christian life was exemplified in his daily walk, and brightly did his faith shine during his last days. His words spoken to the memories of his family and his friends will long be remembered by them. Such a life and such a death has not been in ....(vain? ... last word torn from article; Newspaper name not listed, but must have been The Anderson Newspaper.)
