Now that Ancestry.com has the 1930 census online, I've had a major breakthrough with this family.I was also able to utilize the information and carry back all the way to the family's immigration to America in 1860.
Thomas (I) and Eliza Gleason immigrated approx. 1862-1864 (ages 23/20 respectively, both born IRELAND). 1880 census for CT Children: Lizzie b. ENG, abt. 1860 Annie b. ENG, abt. 1862 Mary b. CT, abt. 1865 Maggie b. CT, abt. 1867 Sarah b. CT, abt. 1869 Katie b. CT, abt. 1871 Thomas (II) b. CT, abt. 1873 (my line) Eddie b. CT, abt. 1875
Notes: The father and oldest children worked in the Cheney Silk Mills.
I find the last 3 children, (Katherine, Thomas, Edward) still enumerated in the 1920 and 1930 censuses for Hartford, CT.
Katherine married a Gardner and had a daughter named Lilian (b. abt. 1909 CT), however she was widowed according to the 1830 census and brother Edward was living with them.In the 1820 census, Edward is living with Thomas J. and his family.
Thomas (II) and Julia Gorman had the following children: Thomas J. (III) b. ABT 1900, Hartford Co., CT Helen b. ABT 1902, Hartford Co., CT Alice b. ABT 1904, Hartford Co., CT (my line) Josephine b. ABT 1906, Hartford Co., CT Walter b. ABT 1907, Hartford Co., CT Edward b. ABT 1905, Hartford Co., CT
Notes: Julia Gorman died in or soon after 1905.
All children, once they reached the age of 15, worked in the Cheney Silk Mills.Alice was a designer/painter of silks until she bore 2 children.
