In Reply to: GLEASON'S IN WASHINGTON by carol goetz of 2187

My grandfather Frederick Gleason was allegedly the first male born in Walla Walla (1854?). Hostiles caused the family to move to California for a few years and then returned. His father was Joseph Gleason born in Missouri and mother was Lottie Kirby of Pennsylvania. I have large press cutting of Frederick who gained some fame. Looking for dates and any siblings. Fred had 2 sons (1921&1923(!)). Eldest was also Fred (my dad) and brother was Lewis who lives in Springfield Ohio. Any help? Can't get further from UK would appreciate any feedback. Good luck!
