Gleason Family Genealogy Forum
I am a descendant of Absalom Gleason and Elizabeth Denney. I am sure you know where they are buried. If not, I have that information. Francis Marion Gleason was married twice. The first to Sarah J. (Unknown). The second was to Martha Irzula Gleason. They are buried in Highland Cemetery in Oilton, Creek County, Oklahoma. Francis is found with Absalom and Elizabeth on the 1885 Kansas State Census along with his two children from his first wife Lula and William D. (David). William David married Sarah J. Bryant. They are buried in the South Heights Cemetery in Sapulpa, Creek County, Oklahoma. They had a son Johnnie David Gleason, who was my great-grandfather. He was married to Nellie Leona Hiland/Highland. They are buried in Green Hills Cemetery in Sapulpa, Creek County, Oklahoma. This is actually adjoining the South Heights Cemetery (which is considered the oldest).
I am actually visiting Johnnie's youngest brother who is still living but is in poor health. He is 80-years-old. He has William David's bible, tons of pictures of the family and other school records, etc. I am unsure of exactly everything he has, but I will find out this Saturday when I visit. All of this information has been verified by this living brother as true and correct. I have actually visited these cemetery plots. The headstone for Francis and his wife Martha Irzula is actually somewhat obstructed by a bush, but it is in great condition considering. I will be having this bush removed and the stone reset very soon, as I just discovered it this last weekend.
