Charles Gleason-living in FL in 1906

Hi everyone! I am very new to this, I am researching any information on my grandmother, Mary Anna Gleason b. 1906, d. 1939. She was married to Abraham Lincoln "Link" Kennedy. She was born in Sanford/Wagner, Florida. It is unknown if she had any brothers or sisters. She passed away when her own children were only 6 through 12 yrs. old, so my mother doesn't remember too much about her. I also am trying to find out any info about Mary Anna's father and mother, my great-grandparents. Their names were:
Charles George Gleason d.1937 in Florida, and Dolly Gleason, (maiden name or any other info unknown). The only history known for sure is that when Mary Anna Gleason was 7 yrs old, her mother, Dolly Gleason, passed away, so her father, Charles George Gleason, placed her in the Methodist Children's Home at Enterprise, FL in 1913. I do not have any info, where Charles Gleason originated from, or know if there were other family members. Just that he was living in Sanford, Florida in 1906, when Mary Anna was born, and that he died in 1937 in Florida. If any of the names below sound familiar-I would be grateful for your help.
Charles George Gleason, aka-C.G.Gleason, aka-Charlie Gleason. d.1937
Dolly Gleason-died in Florida about 1912(?)
Mary Anna Gleason Kennedy b.1906, in Sanford, Florida, d.1939 Laurens, South Carolina at the age of 32.
Thank-you for any help or advice in advance.
I hope the above isn't too confusing-like I mentioned--I am very new at this, and not sure of myself!
