In Reply to: Obediah, Moses, Samuel, Israel MA,NY, PA by Gary T. Horlacher of 2187

I did find a book by John Barber White and Lillian May Wilson, 1909, "Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas Gleason of Watertown, Mass., 1607-1909. I think Obediah Gleason that I am researching was the son of John Gleason or Obadiah Gleason and grandsons of John Gleason of Enfield, Connecticut (page 133). Anyone with a connection to exactly how this family fits it or where the family of John or Obadiah mooved to after Manchester, CT and Granville, MA would be of help.

Following is what I have put together tentatively on the family I am researching:

Obediah Gleason, born 1760-1770, died about 1842 Hartford, Susquehanna, PA; second wife Elizabeth born 1775-1780, died 1830-1840 PA. Resided: Manakating, Sullivan, NY; Lenox, Susquehanna, PA; Hartford, Susquehanna, PA. Children:

1. ?Israel b 1783 MA, ?son Levi md Lucinda Howard
2. Samuel Gleason b 1784-1790; wife Sara; children: Israel, Daniel, Alpheas, Elisa...; resided at Stillwater, Saratoga, NY; Manakating, Sullivan, NY; Nicholsen, Luzerne, PA; and Lenox, Susquehanna, PA.
3. Obediah Gleason b abt 1793, died bef 1840, md Jerusha (?Howard), Children Obediah 1820 NY, Jerusha 1827 PA, Ephraim 1832 PA, Rachel 1836 PA; family resided at: Manakating, Sullivan, NY; Lenox, Susquehanna, PA; Hartford, Susquehanna, PA; Jackson, Steuben, IN; Ross, Kalamazoo, MI; Saugatuck, Allegan, MI.
3. Moses Gleason b 1795 NY
4. Charlotte Gleason b 1801
5. Ariel/Rial Gleason
6. Daniel Gleason
