Hi Ken My great grandparents are Lydia Breakenridge and Benjamin Weeks. The Breakenridge family has quite a history, dating way back. I don't know how much of this history you know, but if you just type James Breakenridge, Bennington Vermont into your browser it will bring up an interesting article. Let me know what you have and I will share with you. I am living in Kapuskasing On but orginally from Marmora. Hoping to move back to the area next year. I have pictures of Lydia and her parents if you are interested. e-mail me at
talk to you soon
