Ernest Gleason

I am looking on information on my mothers father. His name was Ernest Gleason and he ran away from home at the age of 14. From that point on he made his own way, working in logging camps in northern Michigan and Canada and eventually as a dairy farmer in Washtenaw Co., Michigan. He married Mable David and together they had a number of children, Rex E., Oren, Ray, Daisy, Cora, Mable, Patricia, Ellen & Ellena (twins), Guy and Gus (twins) Margaret and finally Harry. I am not sure of the birth order with the exception of Rex being first and Margaret and Harry being the last two. Margaret Gleason (my mother) married Donald A. Geiger and they resided in Clinton, MI. They had two children Cynthia Sue and Rex Charles. Cynthia (me)married Christopher Tirb and we have three daughters, Margaret Sue Geiger Tirb, Elspeth Rene Tirb and Kylista Marie Tirb. Rex married Sheri Systema and they have three children, Jordyn Donald Geiger, Ryan Sieba Geiger and Grace Louis Geiger. Rex and his family reside in Tecumseh, Lenawee co. MI. Any information on my grandfathers family would be appreciated. The only information that he passed on that I know of, is that they had been silver smiths in the past and I do not think that his father was in the same trade.
