In Reply to: Brecheen, Brechen Family by Diane of 89

Hello Diane,

I am the great granddaughter of John Henry and Barbara Lowery Brecheen. My grandfather was not listed as one of their children in the above article. His name was Frank Brecheen and died at the age of 45 leaving my grandmother, Alice Crayton Brecheen, with 10 children. They are all now deceased as well. Their names were Fred, Warren, Della,who was my mother, Delma, Stella, Thelma, Frank, Ernest, James, Ella, who died as a child, and Edward.
I have been told that Mildred Brecheen Husser has a geneology record of the Brecheen family. Since my grandfather died so young and my grandmother later remarried, the family must have lost touch somewhat. My mother often spoke of her family and went to several reunions that were held in Greensburg.
My siblings and I were never privileged to meet many of her family members outside of her siblings. One of my brothers knew Aunt Nettie McMurray and still speaks of her.
It seems the family has some interesting history that I, as well the others who have posted messages would like to know. As you can tell, I don't know much but will be happy to furnish any information I can.
