I am researching many different surnames, including BALDWIN (Kent County, England>Kendall County, IL), BREES, BREESE (NJ>IL>FL), LARWILL, LARWELL (England>NY>NJ>IL), LIPPOLD, LEYPOLD, LEOPOLD (GER>Baltimore,MD),MONROE (LaSalle County, IL), OSSINGER/OSINGER (Bavaria,GER>Baltimore,MD>Wash.D.C.>IL), RIGGS (NJ), ROEMER (GER>NJ>IL), SIMMONS (Swansea, WALES>IL), SPANSWICK(Berkshire, ENG>IL>IA), STONEHAM(Kent County, ENG),and the Wilsey TOMPKINS family(NY>IL).
My Baldwin line starts with John BALDWIN b.1794 in Plaxtol, Kent, England. He married Charlotte Stoneham b, abt 1799 England.
My BREESE line starts accurately with Azariah BREES b. abt. 1743. He is supposed to be the son of John BREES and Dorothy RIGGS, but information back this far is sketchy at best. After twelve years of intensive research on the Breese line, I still do not feel satisfied that I have ever found the correct country of origin,be it Wales, England for Breese or Scotland for Dorothy RIGGS. Any information from anyone that gives something more than the Sidney Breese and four brothers from Salop, Shropshire story would be very much welcomed. I would be happy to share any and all information I have collected through the years. I descend from Azariah Brees' son, John b. 20 Sept 1778 and his wife, Elizabeth Lindsley RAYNOR b. 3 April 1781. Their son, Silas G. Breese b. 4 June 1805 married Henrietta Rosina LARWILL in New Jersey. Silas and Henrietta's son, Thurlow Ellsworth Breese was my Great Grandfather. He married Rose TOMPKINS. My grandfather, Larwill BREESE was one of their sons. Larwill BREESE married my Grandmother, Charlotte Barbara OSSINGER. They had two children, Alma Rosella BREESE and my father, Thurlow Wilsey BREESE.
I will add more information about my other lines as time permits.
