Per Carl Breeding: "He (James H Breeding) was a farmer and had a country store. They reared their family on the head of Breeding's Creek, Knott County, Kentucky. They are buried there. They were my good grandparents we called them, because when we visited them we got candy from the store and she always had some old fashioned gingerbread for us. I'll never forget the night, about midnight, when my dad answered the telephone, I could hear weeping through the receiver as he talked. He turned and said "Mother is dead." Our good grandmother had died of a heart attack. I was eight years old."
