Amos Breler BRELAND

Notes of Edward Breland (, ,
about Amos Breland:

He owned land in the area but haven't been able to trace the disposition of his ownership (as of 5/2002). He was listed in 1790 census as AMOS BREELO and then in 1820 as AMOS BRELAND. The composite of children from the censuses shows that he and his wife (name unknown) had at least 4 girls and 3 boys. The names of the males are thought to be Benjamin, Hezekiah and ISAIAH. It is possible that they moved to Mississippi (as did many of the Breland family members) after the 1820 census in which he and his wife were shown to be 45+ years of age. He served in Rev War but his name was misspelled BRETER, and this caused problems in establishing a pension based on this service.
