About Edward Breen

Survived, age 13.

Not long after leaving Fort Bridger on the Plaines, Edward was out riding with one of the Reed girls when his horse fell. Edward was knocked out and his leg was broken. His parents sent back to the fort for assistance, but when the "surgeon" arrived, he recommended amputation. Edward refused, the leg was set, and by the time the emigrants reached the Humboldt, Edward was riding again.

Edward, like Simon, was rescued by the First Relief. He became a prominent rancher and farmer in San Benito County, owning huge amounts of land in that county and elsewhere. He stood over 6' 1", was well-proportioned, and a noted horseman. Edward’s son Harry J. Breen was an avid family historian who collected and preserved numerous documents.
