Gleason Family Genealogy Forum
I checked with my mother regarding the earlier message, and she's going to see if she can turn up any further information. Our Alvira Gleason married Christopher Columbus Bergen, and next month I'll be attending a Bergen reunion thanks to finding a second cousin on the Bergen forum! We hope to turn up more information then, but the names of Alvira and Alvirus are so unusual that we only have that and the place and timing to assume there's some connection. Let's keep in touch.
Oh - I think most of the Gleason's from Ireland originated in Co. Tipperary, somewhere.
