I have heard a story about how the Gleason family from Altmar Village, New York may be related to the Ramsey family from Canada. I would like to see if anybody knows the truth behind this. The story is as follows:
Supposedly, Levi Gleason (born in 1851) was living in Canada as Levi Ramsey. There was an incident that caused him to move into New York. When he arrived in New York, he changed his last name to Gleason. He then married and had a daughter.
I have found records of a Levi Gleason back until 1880 in New York. However, there is no record of him beyond that. I did however find record of a Levi Ramsey living in Canada in the 1850's.
If anyone has any further information on this intersting part of history, I would appreciate it if I could obtain the information. You can see my previous posts for additional information on this line of the family. Thanks!
