Thank you very much for responding to my e-mail. I am very new at this but some of the information appears to match the information on my Gleason grandparents.
The maiden name of the mother of my father Fred Treat Gleason and his brother William Sage Gleason was Gwendolyn Carson (possibly Carlson) and her family was from Norway. Interestingly, my Father’s birth certificate states that he was born on April 15, 1920 in Beaver, Utah and that his father was a miner. Certificate indicates that mother was Gwendolyn Carson (possibly Carlson). It is my understanding that sometime after my father was born in Beaver, Utah, the family moved to Reno, Nevada. Soon after arriving in Reno, my grandparents (Fred T. Gleason and Gwendolyn Carson/Carlson) separated and Fred T. Gleason moved to Tonopah, Nevada (a booming mining town approximately half-way between Reno and Las Vegas). My grandfather was a deputy sheriff in Tonopah and was killed in a car accident in the year 1933 (my father (Fred) and his brother (William) were then living with their mother (Gwendolyn) in Reno, Nevada. My uncle William joined the U.S. Coast Guard and also became a champion calf-roper. My father joined the U.S. Army Air Core (now the U.S. Air Force) as an officer and fighter pilot and served as a fighter pilot during World Was II and as a jet fighter pilot during the Korean War.
I am not familiar with census terminology nor with census abbreviations but perhaps you can explain to me some of the information you sent me (I hope you don’t mind). What does “Mi” stand for? Is it Missouri or does it represent something else?
I don’t know the names of the parents of my grandfather Fred Gleason but according to my father, they were from Michigan. My father would always make references to Battle Creek, Michigan. My father always told me that his middle name “Treat” was also a last name belonging to his family and I believe he indicated to me that the “Treat” family was also from Battle Creek, Michigan. He also told me that his father or grandfather had been a champion ice skater from the state of Michigan. That is all I know at this time. Any help in deciphering this information would be greatly appreciated.
Again, thanks for helping me.
