I am researching an Irma Gleason. Her older brother was Philander Gleason. I don't think he is the same Philander Gleason you are looking for because this Philander Gleason was born in the late 1800's. Maybe he is a nephew. Did your Philander Gleason have a brother named Alexander? If so, were on the same tree, just different branches. I have info. on Alexander Gleason and his descendents.
