Alvin & Marguerite (Hill) Gleason

Looking for descendants of Alvin and Marguerite (Hill) Gleason.

In October of 1933, when my father, previously named Omar Gleason at birth, his apparent birth parents, listed above, were both 29 years old, as detailed on the Certified copy of his birth certificate.

My father's biological family lived in the Auburn, Washington area for decades.

I further understand that my father's biological father was someone by the name of "Spike" O'Reilly, or something to that effect. I understand that Marguerite eventually divorced Alvin and married Mr. O'Reilly.

My father's attempts in the past few years to get up the courage to seek his biological family came at a price. Both parents are deceased and his biolocial older brother could have cared less, even though they both share a passion for golf.

There are other siblings from the O'Reilly union, but we were not given any information on them.

Sad, really. My dad loved the parents that raised him, had a good life, but always yearned to be reunited with his biological family. After finding out that they lived so close and then wanted nothing to do with him, really was sad. Oh well.

If anyone has further information they can provide, I would appreciate it.
I further understand that Alvin
