Notes:

Daughter Veronica spelled her last name Breck, and I believe that son Albert also used Breck. I'm not sure about the other children yet.

While John was a farmer in 1910, by 1930 he was a Section Laborer on the railroad.

In 1920, the John Breck family, his brother Peter's family, and his brother-in-law Joseph with Joseph's mother Theresia, were all living on neighboring farms near Cottonwood [Jackson County, SD].
