  • Notes 
    • Thanks to Sharon Smith Logan for her detective work on her discovering Frances' true maiden name in her words: "Frances' maiden name is not Fairchild as family tradition states (I was led to believe the same thing). Her maiden name was Chiles . I can prove this through the will of Paul Chiles who left his daughter Frances Chiles 200 acres on Mayo River in his will dated 2 September 1761, Halifax County Virginia. In 1773, Richard Breeding and his wife Frances sold 130 acres to Joh n Stanton in Henry County, VA (Henry was created from Halifax). Also, of note, Paul Chiles parents were Henry Chiles and Ann Rowland".

      Birth date was estimated, figuring she may have been around 20 when she married Richard Breeden (20 was the average age of women to marry during that time). Since their first child, William Breeden was born in 1775, they may have been marriepoximately a year before. Her death date has estimated from the fact that she on the tax list of Shelby County, KY from 1799 to 1829. Francis did not appear in the 1830 tax list, this may indicate she was deceased by that time.

      HISTORY of JACKSON COUNTY, IOWA by Hon. James W. Ellis, Volume 1, Illustrated, Chicago, S. J. Clarke Publishing Co, 1910, pages 364 and 365.
      Sketch of the Life of B. B. Breeden
      At about the beginning of the year 1700, three brothers, Henry, Job and Richard Breeden, came from England and settled in Virginia and married.
      Job remained there all his life, living on the old homestead. Henry and Richard, with their families, went west after a time, and settled in Lawrence county, Kentucky. They each took up homesteads. During an encounter with the Indians, Henry an d his two sons were killed, but not until Henry had killed six Indians before he fell.
      Richard married Fannie Fairchild, a Virginian woman. To them were born eleven children, seven boys and four girls, the seventh child being Richard Jr., who was born in 1778 in what is now known as Louisville, Kentucky.
      The children scattered to various parts of the country. Paul went to Louisiana; James, William and Richard, Jr., to Indiana. Richard settled in Monroe county, Indiana, in about the year 1818. He was married to Miss Lucretia Curl before he left K entucky. To them were born fourteen children, thirteen of whom lived to be grown. We give the names in order of their ages: Fielding, born 1810; Millie, Richard O., William, Polly, Dudley, Blan Ballard, Susan, Lucretia, Jane, Berryman, Calvin, J ames and Amanda. The first six were born in Lawrence county, Kentucky, while Ballard and Susan were born in Monroe county, Indiana. The whole family afterward moved to Putnam county, Indiana, where Jane and Berryman were born, the family afterwa rd going to Edgar county, Illinois, where the rest of the children were born.
      In the year 1838 the family moved to Iowa. Millie married in Illinois and moved back to Kentucky, but afterwards returned to Illinois. The family settled in Jackson county, Iowa, and each of the sons took up claims for themselves. Fielding and W illiam were also married in Illinois. The remainder married in Jackson county.
      In about the year 1850, Fielding, Calvin, Ballard and William went to California to make their fortunes in digging gold. Berryman joined them in 1852. They were three years returning via Pacific Ocean, Isthmus of Panama, Atlantic Ocean, and Ne w York city, thence overland to Iowa. They failed to realize their expectations of making their fortunes.
      Nearly two years after their return, Ballard married Miss Mary Jane Furnish. To them were born three children--Sophronia, DeSoto and Otto. She died on the 12th day of February 1861. On the 5th day of September, he married Miss Mary Ann Campbell . To them were born seven children: Frances J., Dora L., Willaims S., Lillie V., Arizona M., Millie L. and Clarence Bird. Williams S. and Millie L. died in infancy.
      Richard Breeden, father of B. B. Breeden, died in September 1872; Lucretia, his mother, died in February, 1874, at the ages of eighty-four and eighty-three years, respectively. Fielding moved to Keokuk county, Iowa, where he died in 1887. Willia ms returned to Illinois and lived in Hancock county where he died in 1896. Berryman never returned from California. He died in the year 1875 or 1876. Owen was killed by a falling tree while hunting, on the 12th day of February, 1868. Millie die d in Illinois in 1865. Polly died in Kansas in 1878. Dudley died in Jackson county, Iowa, in 1842. Susan died in Jackson county in 1845. Lucretia died in infancy in Putnam county, Indiana. Jane now lives in Mariposa county, California. Calvin di ed very suddenly on October 31st, 1899. James lives near Clear Lake, Wisconsin, and Amanda in Jackson county.
      Mr. Breeden died on June 7, 1906, being eighty-six years, five months and nineteen days old. His life was long and useful and he was loved and honored by all his family and highly respected by all who knew him.
