I´m trying to trace a brach of my mother´s family - the Gleesons.
Michael Gleeson married Eliza Smith in 1879 in Monasterevin They had a son James born in 1884 in Grangemellon They also had a son Patrick and a daughter who married an Aldritch and lived in Duke St Athy.
James Gleeson married Catherine Neary in 1914 and gave his place of residence as Ardreigh. She came from Meath but gave her place of residence as Mount Offaly, Athy.
At some point they moved to Laois (between 1914 and 1925). Any information about Gleesons in Kildare would be great
