Gleason Family Genealogy Forum
I am searching for some lost relatives who may still be residing
in Tipperary Co. My g-grandfather, John Joseph Gleason (married
to Mary Long) immigrated to the US from Tipperary around 1903 - 1907. He had siblings who stayed in Tipp. - John, Beatrice,
Mary, Johanna, and perhaps Michael). John's parents names were
Mary Ryan and Michael Gleason. John settled in or near Buffalo
NY and had several children - John (a priest), Mary, William, Nora,
Martin, James and Thomas (my grandfather). My father thinks
that the original spelling of the family name may have been
GLEESON, but he's not sure.
Mary Long was from Galway and left several siblings there -
Ellen, Beatrice, Nora, and Thomas. Her mother was Honora Mullen
and her father was Michael Long.
I would greatly greatly appreciate any information anyone regarding
the whereabouts of my Irish relatives.
Thank you very much,
Sean Michael Gleason,
