My great grandfather was Michael Gleason who came to Bloomington, IL in the 1880's from Ireland. He married, had children and lived out his life in Bloomington. I have all his pertinent information - I'll have to look it up for you. I think they had a son - and Paul seems to ring a bell.
The Gleasons were my mother's maternal side of the family. They were all gone before I was born - so I never knew them.
