My great grandfather was Joel Dola Gleason, Son of Joel Gleason. Joel Dola was born in Three Rivers Michigan in 1871. His mother died shortly after his baby sister died. When his father remarried he was 4 yr old and the new Mrs. Gleason did not want the son from a previous marriage. Joel Dola was boarded out to a family for 10 years. He knows that his father was an engineer for the rail road Air Line in Mi. Around 1885 there was a train wreck and his father Joel Gleason was the engineer and helped to save lives. He was later rewarded with a gold watch. Later the older Joel moved out west and was a cattle rancher. We think this Joel was born in Huron Co. Ohio. If you can fill in any blanks I would appreciate it.
