Hi Theresa

Paul Breen died in 1942. As I was born in
December 1942, they named me after him.

I knew Helen very well as she was my closest
grandaunt until her death around 1959. I spent a lot
of time with her in Stoneham, Mass. She married James Speakman sometime in the 30's or early 40's. They had
no children and I never knew Helen had a child earlier.
Helen is buried in the Breen family plot in Biddeford, Me.
I have some old pictures of Helen taken in the 40's and
50's that I could probably copy and send you.

I would like a copy of your mother's certificate of baptism
and the land records that you have found. I lived with my
grandmother Theresa and her second husband, Roger
Greene, until I was twelve. We spent every summer at our
cottage in Freeport, Me, and frequently went to Saco
and Old Orchard Beach to visit relatives, but I don't remember
their names, except for the Kerrys in Saco.

Theresa C Scruton was Helen's sister, and Arthur
Scruton was her first husband. I have no info as to when
they divorced, but he remarried in 1930. I have traced the Scrutons back to Michael William Scruton who came to NH from Ireland in 1738, which would be of little interest to you.

I have more info but as this is probably of little interest
to the general list, perhaps we shoud communicate directly.

All the best
Paul
