You'll probably get some of this info piecemeal from me as i find my way through my papers.
anyway, just ran across the correspondence from Carlie Arntsen on Darius.
Her family group sheet says Clarissa Arzelia Edson was born in Coventry, Orleans, Vt Feb 10, 1834/35 and died after 1870. She said Clarissa and Darius were divorced Oct 24, 1865 and she had left the household 3 years before the divorce after the birth of Ernest. she gives the marriage date as Jan 1, 1851.
She gives the children's full names and birthdates if you want them.
Obviously I have a typo in my data on her death date and will have to correct that.

Kari,
I have further information on Darius Breese for you. My husband is descended through him and his second wife Clarassia A. Edson. I have information through another descendant whose name I will have to look up. She has found and sent me a copy, not of their divorce, but of the Annulment of their 16 year marriage! Clarissa married 2nd a Hiram Allen and in the 1870 Ohio Census they have a young daughter named Hirametta. They are in the 1880 Michigan Census, and he dies in 1878 in Ohio and is buried with his first wife, but I am unable to find her death. My guess is she may have married again! She did witness the marriage of her son Sylvester A. Brees to Myrtle G. Wadsworth in 1883 in Jackson Co., MI.
I have been contacted by other Breese/Brees researchers, one in 2002 was connected to Abram Bennett Brees, son of Elias & Deborah Bennett Brees. I can't find her name, but her Email is krose@carr.org I will check on any other contacts that may be of interest.
