Gleason Family Genealogy Forum
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:
