I am looking for any information on The surname "Gleason" in Colfax County New Mexico. Particularly the parents of Edgar Gleason B march 1876 D: approx 1907 who married Daisy Popejoy B: 30 Jan 1881 who died 18th Oct 1960 in Raton New mexico. Edgar's parents were supposedly alonzo or alfonso "fritz" Gleason and Sara jane Sumptner Married dec 25 1872 in Colfax County and both originally from Reading ,Michigan but this information may be incorrect. We have found an Alvaro Fritz Gleason in the same area married to a Sara Jane Mercer with a birthdate a year off but the same day 13 april 1843 and are trying to acertain if alvaro and alonzo are one and the same or brothers or what. Have you ran across any information on the Gleason family in that area during your research? Any information you have would be appreciated. A reply would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,
Lori Martin
