Author’s Note:

for the purpose of this document, the following was utilized in determining “circa birth dates,” unless otherwise noted:  For males- actual date given minus 25 years from marriage or firstborn child.  For females- actual date given minus 20 years from marriage or firstborn child.  It should be noted that I have erred on the conservative side in estimating such ‘circa’ dates. A much greater value than 20, or 25 years, may be the case.

Breakey,

Isaiah &

Obediah

      Isaiah Breakey of Greenvale Mills and Obediah, who lived at Derry Big House, were brothers of John  'Soople' Breakey and William (Billy Bon) Breakey; however, no dates of birth can be ascertained for them. Isaiah Breakey is allegedly the ancestor of the Breakeyville, Quebec lineage. Obediah's grandson, Obediah, fought in the French War  under Wellington in 1809 and died  from gun shot wounds at Isaiah's in Aughnamullen.  This entry has been taken from extant lineage lines in circulation, but the reader must remember that these charts are based on The Memoirs of Thomas C. Breakey of Drumskelt House.  John A. McIvor in his Extracts from a Ballybay Scrapbook, 1974,  states: James Breakey, of Drumskelt, wrote two quarto manuscripts books - the former in 1898 and the latter in 1901 (book courtesy of Art Montgomery to author, 1983).
