BUCE BUSE BUICE Family Tree Genealogy


BRESHEARS Family Trees

Not all the BUCE family researchers will be interested in the BRESHEARS connection, but I am. My great-grandmother Omie BUCE was a BRESHEARS. Not only that, but - provided a single contested link in the BRESHEARS lineage holds true - the BRESHEARS family can trace their ancestors directly back to the Earl of Bath (England) and through a marriage to Anne Plantagenet, to King Edward the III, and through him to the Emperor Charlemagne. (For more information on the BRESHEARS line, visit "Deep Roots and Tangled Branches" - a website maintained by Georgene Humphries.

The BRESHEARS family intersects with the BUCE family via two marriages. Lillie A. BUCE, daughter of William Riley BUSE, married Samuel Henderson BRESHEARS. Lillie's brother, Charles Marion BUCE, married Sam's sister, Omie Jane BRESHEARS.

Please note that not all the information below is verified and/or backed up with documentation. We've pieced some of this from the scraps of information left by BUCE/BUSE researchers. This information is all I have (gathered into one spot) at the moment. If you have data to add, or photos, please email them to me!!

Most of the children of Joseph Breshears and Prudence Henderson seem to have been born in and around Bolivar, Polk County, Missouri.

There has been some confusion by other researchers regarding Prudence HENDERSON's name. The confusion was explained by Judy BRESHEARS in this way: "I think re: Prudence - this is where it gets complicated. Joseph's father was married to Prudence Tipton. (He was also a Joseph). They lived near William and Sarah Henderson and two of Joseph's sons married Henderson daughters. Just so happened that Joseph married Prudence, hence the confusion. That is the way I have understood it, anyway."
