I am a decendant of Gleasons from the Lower East Side of Manhattan. My grandfather was John E. Gleason, whose father(name I don't knwo) was killed in the great Wall Street blast of the earlt twentieth century. His mother was a Connerty and he married Annie F. Keyhoe. My father, Alfred E. Gleason was the godson of Alfred E. Smith, presidential cadidate and governor of New York. My grandfather must have had brothers and sisters but we do not know. Any possible relations out there? I added Matthew to my name but I am the other "Jackie" Gleason and was born a few blocks away from the original in Bushwick,Brooklyn.
