I see a Thomas Neal Breedlove who was born in Oklahoma in 27 June 1892 (some records say 1893 or 1894) and died in California in 1978.  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VPCM-Y2Y  There is a Thomas A. Breedlove who died in California in 1971, but that appears to be a different one.

Where are you getting the information about multiple possible wives for George's father?

Name:    Robert Breedlove
Spouse    Catharine Chance
Marriage Date - 17 Feb 1852
Marriage County - Adams, Illinois

1860 census
Dickerson, Lewis, Missouri
Robert Breedlow 52 born Indiana
Catharine Breedlow 36 Maryland
Thomas F Breedlow 18 Illionois
Robert W Breedlow 7
Leo L Breedlow    5
Sarah E Breedlow 3
Martha V Breedlow 1

1870
Canton, Lewis, Missouri
Robert Breedlove 62
Martha Breedlove 22 keeps house born Indiana
Robert W Breedlove 17
George S Breedlove 14
Sarah E Breedlove 12
Martha J Breedlove 10
Alice S Breedlove 8

There are no relationships stated on these censuses but I note that Martha age 22 and robert 62 are both born Indiana. Could it be that martha is a niece/granddaughter or a duaghter from an earlier marriage than the one to Catherine in 1852.

Despite the enormous disparity in age, Martha seems to be Robert Breedlove's wife.

Robert Breedlove
Missouri Marriages, 1750-1920
Name:   Robert Breedlove
Spouse's Name:   Martha Summers
Event Date:   22 Feb 1866
Event Place:   Lewis,Missouri


Here they are in 1880 with a new crop of children.  None of the previous children are present:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9YBK-9H2K?i=7&cc=1417683

I think this is Martha Summers in 1860 [M. Summers, line 3] in Lewis County, Missouri.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GBSH-C4V?i=16&cc=1473181

Robert Breedlove, Martha, and most of Breedlove's children are buried in Missouri:

To complete the progression, here is Robert with first wife Elizabeth in Gilmer, Illinois in 1850:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M85F-FG1

There is clear continuity from one census to the next, with at least 14 children with three different wives.   But only one wife at a time.

And yes, Thomas Neal Breedlove died in 1978, not 1971, but the connection to this family is clear.
