In Reply to: Gleason - Genesee Co, NY - Kane Co, IL by Jule Goeller of 2187

My Gleason ancestors were in Illinois from 1838 to 1855 in Kane and adjacent, De Kalb Co, Illinois. My G G Grandfather Abial Granger married Melissa Gleason from N Y and she died in Illinois in 1842. Samuel Gleason and E P Gleason and Rodger Gleason owned land in DeKalb Co from 9/9/1839. Absolom Gleason owned 150 acres in Kane Co, Illinois purchased in 1843. Have not been able to directly relate Melissa Gleason to others but they all came from back east. Most moved on to Iowa and other states around 1855. Do any of these names appear in your line? Leonard Granger
