My name is Maxine Gambrel.  I have created this site to attempt to tell the Breedlove and Gambrel family history.  I begin with the early start in Europe and then of the family beginnings and struggles in the United States.

I could not have done this without the help and support of George Breedlove and Louise James.


In the comprehensive research of this site an attempt has been made to include stories of the real type of encounters and struggles evident with these new beginnings.  These stories starting with the Parr and Pound families and how they are connected to the Breedlove family.  

All stories and pictures are either recorded in or from family members.


I have attempted to include as many pictures as possible.

There is a CONTACT US area where you can include your email address if you have more or different information.
