Thanks for your response. Absalom Gleason was as far back as I had been able to trace, so the other names are all new to me. It seems like that the Absolom Gleason that purchased 150 acres in Kane County in 1843 is likely the same Absalom Gleason who married Elizabeth Denny in 1842 in Kane County. They also had their first child, Nathaniel on 2/3/1843. The other names are new to me, but again, it seems like that they all must be related. It was interesting to note that you mentioned most of them moved to Iowa since Nathaniel fought with an Iowa regiment during the Civil War. That seems to indicate that either Absalom's family also lived in Iowa before moving to Alexandria, Nebraska, or perhaps that Nebraska had no regiments of their own since they were not yet a state (?).
Do you have any information connecting Samuel, E P, Rodger or Absalom Gleason? I'm sorry I don't have more information. Wouldn't it be interesting if Absalom and Melissa were siblings? Jule Goeller
